Question:For the first point of the Nintendo of Canada "clarification", just remember Nintendo did this as well when a French Nintendo person stated Smash 3DS would be out in October and the NFC focus at E3 would be purely on Smash Wii U. Nintendo lies to cover their ass if someone speaks wrong. This is no confirmation that Rayman will be playable but you can't use Nintendo's clarification that the dude was talking about the trophy. This might make your argument stronger as Nintendo has shown lying befor - ssb4dojo
This makes an interesting argument, but I question how much this rep knows about the trophy. Like, does he know about the legal conversations made to gain the rights to rayman, the 3d assets, etc. However, I understand your reasoning and why they would lie.
