It’s been recently reported that Nintendo has some large releases planned for the Nintendo 3DS. The first was confirmed by UK gaming retailer, GAME, whom leaked information in a retail listing that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is set for release in 2012. On Wednesday, August 29, GAME and GameStation had the pre-order for the title listed for a short time, then later removed. The listed price for the pro-order was £29.99 (~$47.50) and no other news regarding a release date has surfaced.
Whispers that a Majora’s Mask remake surfaced in July last year when series producer Eiji Aonuma hinted to it if the fans were clamoring for it. The whispers late became truths when Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed that a remake was in the process after revealing it was a toss up between Majora’s Mask or A Link to the Past.
Later in the day, it was confirmed by the Nintendo Direct Conference that Paper Mario Super Seal and Animal Crossing 3DS will be out before the end 2012 in Japan. Animal Crossing 3DS is set for release November 8, whereas Paper Mario Super Seal has yet to be determined.
One other piece of news from the conference revealed that a pink Nintendo 3DS XL will be released on September 27. There is no word if or when the new titles will make their way to Europe or North America. Furthermore, the same is true of the pink 3DS XL.

Across every genre of entertainment there are specific titles or releases that become synonymous with failure, that in the eyes of fans and critics alike embody the worst that the genre has to offer. They become the universal butt of any joke in that medium, the yardstick against which every other poorly-received release is measured. [...]

Indeed, the biggest sellers of this generation of titles have been primarily online competitive titles, such as Halo 4 & Call of Duty.
