A data-miner uncovered a menu icon for Twilight Princess in the Wii U eShop. This could point to any number of things. Or it could be nothing at all. This is only a rumor.
Idea 1: Nintendo floated the idea of a GameCube for Virtual Console, but nothing ever came of it. The Wii U bombing probably didn't help matters.
Idea 2 and the more probable one: Nintendo is looking to release the Wii version of TP for Virtual Console. They already made a few other Wii games available this way.
Idea 3 and highly doubtful: Nintendo is making TP HD. I really doubt it since we just got a remake (Majora's Mask on 3DS). We're on the block for new Zeldas now with Tri Force Heroes first followed by Zelda Wii U (or NX) next year. If anything a remake won't happen until after Zelda Wii U is out (2017 will be my guess unless Zelda Wii U gets delayed for 2017 leading to a stop-gap being needed for 2016 -- like TP HD maybe?).
Remeber GREZZO helped in Tri Force Heroes, so any development they start on now regarding remakes is at least two years away unless Nintendo puts another team in with GREZZO to speed up development. Also why would they reuse 2006 TP art if they will remake most things in HD anyways?
Idea 4: It could be just a placeholder/test icon and Nintendo forgot to remove it from the servers. So nothing to see here if that's the case.
Idea 5: It's just a promotional item to advertise a service...like Virtual Console for example. It wouldn't be the first time Nintendo used "prototype" imagery to advertise a service even if the image from a game/IP that's used never is fully explored for Virtual Console.
So what do you think?
