* UrbanLegendOfZelda: Mostly averted, as despite pretty much half the internet going crazy over this game, any rumours without at least some proof are quashed almost immediately. Though, there have been several instances of faked screenshots and [=CoroCoro=] pages being hidden among legitimate releases from [=CoroCoro=] and Pokémon Sunday by some of the people who leak them. The problem is getting worse every single time a new batch of info is released. Justified in that there are legions of fan websites ready to debunk these rumors as well as long-time fans that are probably GenreSavvy enough to know better. This hasn't stopped the occasional hastily added entries to this page, however.
