Majora's Mask 3DS Accidentally Leaked By Target?

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS is one of the most anticipated titles in the Zelda series that fans want to experience on Nintendo’s current handheld system. Originally released on the N64 (Nintendo 64) in 2000, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is the popular sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time — also released on the N64, but two years prior in 1998.

But will Zelda fans see Majora’s Mask 3DS hit retailer shelving and the Nintendo eShop some time in the near future? According to a Canadian Target employee, labels have already been printed for the game and slapped onto display shelving under the title The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS — complete with a functional inventory bar code and placeholder information for the price and release date.

Key Nintendo developer Takashi Tezuka recently revealed that he would personally like to be able to enjoy a Majora’s Mask 3DS remake. One month ago today, Grezzo, the developer who worked on Ocarina of Time 3D for Nintendo 3DS, recently posted two job listings for the development of a “Legend” title. And within the past two weeks, Shigeru Miyamoto even revealed that Nintendo still has unannounced 3DS projects in the works for the Zelda series.

It doesn’t take a puzzle-solving, green garb-wearing, ruby-collecting Hylian kiddo to figure out that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS is on the way. The question is, when will the moon rise to reveal the beauty?

  1. I work in the retail industry, Anyone that has work in a stock position can tell you that with a inventory scanner it is stupid easy to input a new item into the inventory and print out a label for it and find a empty spot on the shelf and place the label there…Why do you think it list that it only has 1 in the sales floor….and who the hell releases a game on new years eve?!?! come on ppl common sense

  2. Having been an electronics specialist at a North American Target I can tell you that target uses a DCPI code (it’s proprietary). It’s beeen 5-6 years since my college days when I worked there… But it’s something like “Department, Category, Planogram information” this is how you know which shelf to stock which game… The game has a definitive DCPI….


    Department 90.
    Shelf 50 (maybe)?
    Slot 1 (also maybe)?

    I’ve forgotten alot, but either this person went balls-to-the wall with a label and understood DCPI’s or it’s real.

  3. I work at target and found the exact same label today. It’s been taken down know because it was leaked. The game is coming out.

    • Of course someone would say they also work for target after one person just did this is all crap. If anyone is gullible to believe that a store would have a release date for a game before the own company does than you my friend don’t understand how the process works… Why on earth would nintendo hide this from their fans knowing how many more people would buy systems giving them more money because of how bad they are currently doing economically? The answer is simple they aren’t hiding anything the game isn’t ready and won’t be for a while. Now all of you calm down and get a grip I want this game just as badly as the rest of you but making stuff up getting people excited for nothing is pointless it’s only hurting you too.

      • And how do you know what the company knows? Please enlighten me. This remake has been being asked for, for years at this point. It would be smart to get stores ready for the game and prep distributors so they can release it quickly rather than have all this hype build up and people lose interest.

        • You know, all this stuff somewhat reminds me of Skyrim. The game was rushed by overly eager fans, so Bethesda gave them an unfinished game with lots of bugs, and never bothered to update it. That’s what you all will get if you aren’t patient.

          • You sound a little bit simple and a lot like you’ve never worked in the games biz. A game is never “rushed for the fans”. Elder Scrolls titles are published by their parent company, Zenimax, so there is a very loose deadline attached. A game is only ever pressured to release by deadlines imposed either internally when self-published, or by a second party that controls the finances for the project. If you knew the absurd complexity of games now you’ll know that games must pass QA. Games are generally bug-free but obviously some sneak through. As someone with 200 hours on Skyrim since launch (on PC) I’ve yet to come across a single bug. The QA department did their job. Buggy games ruin the value of the IP and the studios involved so no, they won’t leave bugs in if they can help it, it’s not some giant conspiracy just to appease baying fans.

            So there you have it. This bizarro world you’ve concocted is such a fantasy, just because you wanted to sound like you’re in the know. I guess now you know you aren’t. What will you do with your day now?

          • What bethesda game isn’t full of bugs? Use your head child. Bethesda games were not patched because users could correct the bugs faster than they could. Not to mention it didn’t cost them a dime.

        • Nintendo sets release dates, not Target or any other retailer for that matter. If it was to the point of them printing up labels, and setting up planos it would have a street date, be advertised in the weekly flyer, and you’d know about it. It’s not real, it isn’t happening. At least not yet. Relax.

  4. This is false data, I work for Target and that for one is not how our Labels are setup (yes even Canada runs on the same system). The numbers pull up nothing but an invalid number. And Nintendo is the ones who print and set up their new releases

    • Hate to inform you, but as a Target employee in Canada, our systems are totally different. Different item numbers, different PDAs, different POS, everything. Target Canada item numbers start with 000xxxxxxxx.

      By the way, stop sending people from USA Target’s to Canada saying they can get returns here, we can’t do them. :)
