We are so glad we used the "rumour" tag when we posted that story about a Luigi-themed 2DS console the other day. Although the photos looked utterly convincing and we — like most of the internet — were taken in by the green-and-white system, it transpires that it's not an official product, but a fan-made mod.

Matthew Wiggins — owner of Rose Colored Gaming, a site we've covered in the past — created the custom system for his own personal amusement, and shared photos with close friends.

As you can probably guess, those photos made it into the hands of other people, and an exciting rumour was born. Wiggins admits that he's flattered that people believed his work could be official, but adds that he hopes those same fans aren't too disappointed that the Luigi 2DS isn't going to be a reality.
