New Miyamoto game screenshots?
My god, what a productive Sunday this is turning out to be! Thanks to Raphael, we can all enjoy these six beautiful screenshots from this Chinese DS site´s forums:
According both to GoNintendo and their source, German Nintendo site PlayWii.de, these are supposed to be the first screenshots from a new Miyamoto IP. However, no such reference can be found on the original forum (which seems to be down at times).
The original thread is entitled 个未定名的游戏,游戏概念图, which approximates (according to Babelfish) to ´Has not chosen a name game, game concept chart´.
Further below, the topic creator writes: 游戏概念图, 应该不是即时演算的,不过感觉不错, which is translated as ´The game concept chart, should not be the immediate calculation, but feels good´, probably meaning that they are not real screenshots, but what the studio is aiming for.
Other people commented on the screenshots thus:
- ´From the old castle to the modern metropolis, the disparity a little too was big´
- ´Hypothesis a little FF meaning... ...´
- ´Flies the spatial ship all to have, the model finally fantasized´
- ´Is game which quite anticipated´
- ´Originally is this game´
I know that Babelfish turns every sentence into Yoda-Speak, which seems to fit the Star Wars feel of the screenshots. But some of the sentences are clear enough to suggest that this is a game that has been anticipated for some time. In this case, it couldn´t possibly be anything to do with Miyamoto, because there has been no word on a new IP - and who could anticipate something that hasn´t yet been announced?
In my mind, it can´t be a Miyamoto game. It may, however, turn out to be for the Wii, after all. Since it was posted on a DS site´s forum, that is actually rather likely.
EDIT The images are indeed from a Chinese CGI movie called ´Thru the Moebius Strip´. Thanks to Fyter for pointing this out. You can visit the movie´s website here. Some of the scenes from the alleged Miyamoto screenshots can be seen in the trailers. This could leave the whole story fake. However, it does not explain the comments by the people on the Chinese forum. They were clearly recognizing a game. Perhaps there is a game in development alongside the movie?
