There are three reactions to any rumor…
- There’s the obvious rumor (Sony is working on God of War 4!);
- There’s the plausible, but unproven, rumor (Grand Theft Auto V will be out in 2012!);
- And then there are rumors that make you wonder if you’re stuck in some kind hideous loop where every day is April 1st.
This rumor is that last one.
GoNintendo is reporting that Eminem recently met with a Sacramento-based marketing agency to create a video for Nintendo’s E3 press conference. According to the report, the Real Slim Shady will appear on stage via video to promote a Wii U game titled Acid Ghost.
No one is quite sure what Eminem’s connection to Acid Ghost is, but a second GoNintendo report has revealed a bit about the game. Acid Ghost will take place on a cruise ship and players will control the titular poltergeist as he torments the vacationing passengers. Some of The playful ghost will be able to pull a wide variety of pranks such as “pick up random objects, grab people’s body parts, draw on the walls with blood, turn on and off lights in rooms, mess with passengers [televisions], radios, and laptops, and mess with their food when they aren’t looking.”
GoNintendo’s tipster stated that Acid Ghost is in development at Kuju Entertainment, but I still have no idea what Eminem has to do with this. Does he love pranks? Is his paleness a hint at a deepseated love for Casper the Friendly Ghost? Did the Jason costume he used to wear give him a hankering to recreate Friday the 13th Part VIII?
I’m holding out hope for all of the above. But I can’t wait to find out the truth.
