The official franchise is The Legend of Zelda, is it not?
Not to mention, why would it generically label it as a new game in the franchise, and not name the actual game, like with Pokken Fighters? They could have said "New Pokemon" or some s**t.
But, they mentioned Pokken Fighters because that name was trademarked. AKA public knowledge. So this paper only uses public knowledge, instead of inside information, from what I can tell. Suspicious.
"X from Monolith Soft" also sounds like weird phrasing. It should just say X? That is the tentative name for it. Just X.
Also isn't the Bayonetta series third party? Why is it separate from "Third-party games lineup?" And SMT should also be third party, I think? i.e. games from series that are not exclusive to Nintendo, don't count as first or second party (even if the game itself is exclusive), if I'm understanding that term correctly.
