Nintendo doesn't know what the hell an internet is and some writer at G4 wants to convince me they're working on an MMO!?

Online zelda has been done. It was called graal online and it was pretty fun.

Here's a bit more thought out of a source: http://venturebeat.com/2011/05/26/zelda-universe-esrb/
 
"The rest of Nintendo’s games are listed for specific platforms like the Nintendo DS and Wii — the company’s most popular consoles. The game doesn’t seem to be an online role-playing game like World of Warcraft, because those games are listed as games for the Macintosh and PC. Some online games like EVE Online are cross-linked as Macintosh, PC and online games. Flash games like Sorry! and Scrabble are listed as exclusively online games."
 
"Another hint about the game could come from its name: “Universe.” Nintendo could be creating an online experience similar to other games that crosses multiple platforms — such as the iPhone, the Nintendo DS and the company’s consoles. Skyward Sword could be at the heart of that experience, with other interactive elements like alternate reality games, flash games and mobile apps also feeding in. “Zelda Universe” is also the name of the main website that serves as a hub for all of Nintendo’s Zelda games."
 
 
also: The ESRB's listing for Zelda Universe dates as far back as 2008

The first MMO to feature not names, but friend codes.

Spiral Knights is actually incredibly close to Zelda at its core.

It's really pretty fun.

Nintendo making an MMO? That would probably be the worst thing ever.

An MMO where no-one can talk would actually be quite refreshing.
