One of the biggest rumours floating around in Nintendo waters has been about the upcoming Gamecube title, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and its "compatibility" with the next-generation console, the Revolution.

Whilst visiting in Europe, Nintendo UK had a quick word with Shigeru Miyamoto who revealed the truth after Nintendo had dismissed these rumours over and over again.

Asked how the GameCube adventure was progressing, Miyamoto responded: "I would say that we are progressing well with completing it," says Miyamoto. "And one of the most important features is that, because Revolution can run GameCube software, when you play Twilight Princess on Revolution you can take advantage of the Revolution controller."

Finally we know the truth. If there was any pattern to recent Nintendo rumours, it would be that they deny them, over and over again, before announcing that they're actually true genius.

Viva la Revolution.
