Rumor: FLCL game in the works for Wii U and 3DS

Rumor: FLCL game in the works for Wii U and 3DS photo



What's the weakest possible source for a rumor that you can imagine? A random tweet from a dude who says he's already got a copy of the new Metroid Vs. Star Fox game because his uncle works for Nintendo? A guy on the train who claims that he's a window washer for Microsoft, and can confirm that he saw Bill Gates and Hideo Kojima drinking Ecto Cooler and playing Metal Gear Solid 4 all night on the Xbos 360? 

Well, this rumor has them all beat. The source here is a random forum post on IMDb, and it claims that a game based in FLCL universe is being developer by Namco Bandai for Nintendo consoles. It just doesn't get any less credible than that. Yet, the internet is still getting excited about it. That just speaks to the power of FLCL. Fans of this property love it so much that they just can't help it. Give them cause to believe that FLCL is coming back in any form, and they'll lose it. All reason goes out the window.

Of course, there is the outside chance that this rumor is legit. FLCL is an extremely strange a property, and this would be an appropriately strange way to announce its entry into the world of gaming. I've reached out to Namco Bandai for comment. In the meantime, I think it's best that you FLCL fans not get your hopes up.
