A retail listing for a 3DS version of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask has appeared – and quickly disappeared – from GAME’s website.
It was spotted by NintendoLife, which claims the listing also briefly featured on the Gamestation site.
Majora’s Mask is a sequel to the famed Ocarina of Time on N64 and is a cult favourite amongst fans of the series. Though not as accessible as its predecessor, the game was renowned for implementing a curious time-travel mechanic that set it apart from anything else on the market.
Whether the leak proves to be real or a hoax, Nintendo has today announced firm details of other titles.
A brand new Professor Layton has been confirmed for 3DS and will be released in Japan in 2013 while a new rhythm action game called Harmo Knight from the minds behind Pokemon has also been revealed.
In addition, Animal Crossing 3DS has a firm Japanese release date of November 8th.
Also announced is a new colour SKU for 3DS called PinkXWhite that features a light pink outer shell and white inner fascia.
UPDATE: GAME has contacted MCV to confirm that the listing reported online was a hoax created by a third party.
“I can confirm that the listings for a 3DS version of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask on the GAME and Gamestation websites were fabricated images,” the spokesperson told us. “We’d also be very excited if they were making this game but I’m afraid we have no news for our customers at present.”
