FAKE – 3DS XD: Gale of Darkness Remake!

Images have surfaced of what appears to be a Nintendo 3DS port of Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness.  This could be another elaborate 2ch hoax! The Japanese is correct, and the girl’s name is Mana though, so we can’t immediately rule it out like some of the scans have that popped up. From the top screenshot it looks like the overworld may have been turned into a 2D sort of map, but it’s hard to tell from a still shot.

I’d like to point out that I’m extremely skeptical of this because of how taxing it would be to add in all the 3D models for pokemon that didn’t exist when the original game came out.  If they were making a game like this, it’d be much more efficient to port the engine but create a totally new game with it.  Please do not believe this is true until something more substantial confirms it.  For now treat it as false. 🙂

Update: As our eagle-eyed reader Chardan points out, the blue slider was only used in press shots before the 3DS was actually released.  The blue model has a grey nub.  I think we can officially rule this out as FAKE!
