Nintendo has revealed that it expects upcoming core titles, such as Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7, to continue selling well throughout the duration of the Nintendo 3DS' lifespan.

"It is important to create software that can sell for a long period of time, which is one of the characteristics of software for Nintendo platforms," said Nintendo's president Satoru Iwata.

"For the Nintendo 3DS, among the software titles which we have already launched or the ones which are to hit the store shelves soon, such titles as nintendogs + cats, Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 hold strong potential to become the titles that will sell for as long as Nintendo 3DS is on the market."

Nintendogs + cats launched at the same time as the console, while Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 are due to launch in the lead-up to Christmas.
