It seems the ESRB website has a listing for a game called "Zelda Universe":

I have no clue, but it's the best explanation I have at the moment.

It makes sense since VC/WiiWare games are listed as for the Wii, and not online. Still, it's weird. Maybe Zelda Universe has minigames to play online.

It doesn't make much sense though, why would a Website have an ESRB rating?

And the only other Online games Published by Nintendo are Advance Wars, and Animal Crossing DS.

Dr. Mario Online Rx Nintendo of America Everyone No Descriptors Wii

Dr. Mario Wii Nintendo of America Everyone No Descriptors Wii

There's also two entries for Dr. Mario.

I would be very skeptical guys. It's probably nothing.

"UPDATE from Nintendo Everything: Looks like this is nothing more than an old ESRB rating. If you do a search on the ESRB website for the "Online" platform, you can tell that "Zelda Universe" was rated around 2001, at about the same time Oracle of Ages/Oracle of Seasons were released. You may also remember the Zelda Universe interaction that once appeared on the official Zelda website. Back in the day, it seems that the ESRB sometimes rated some content with online website user interaction - as was the case for one ESRB pogo.com rating."

Advance Wars: Dual Strike and Advance War: Days of Ruin each have their own seperate entry, neither of which say online.

That entry that says Advance wars is separate. I don't understand why Animal Crossing DS is the only Nintendo game that has online under its platform heading, but it is. I think its just an error or laziness by the ESRB.

i'd always liked the idea of a MMO situated in hyrule...

but im not sure if that zelda universe is a online zelda... nintendo is famous for giving tons of fake names to their projects (ultra 64, dolphin, revolution, etc.). also, they still havent showed a single image of the wii zelda game eiji aonuma (sp?)mentioneda couple times

I did NOT say that... I said WiiWare and VC games are listed as Wii games, so the "online" platform just doesn't make sense it if were a game.

WTF, even WW is said to have violence there...

And WiiWare/VC games ARE listed as Wii games.

Any idea how they can tell it was rated around 2001? I don't see dates on any of my ESRB searches.
