Castlevania: MoF and Shinobi. Which 3DS game was more popular near release?

Also, there's been so many discussions about Castlevania: Mirror of Fate recently that I have to wonder if platformers are going regain tremendous popularity again someday. While growing up as a kid, I remember hearing so many comments and discussions about games like Megaman, Mario, Donkey Kong, Castlevania, etc.

Nowadays, it seems like RPGs and first-person shooters get all the attention.

I don't think anyone talked about Shinobi at launch which is a shame since it's a great game and everyone is just complaining about Castlevania because it's less like Metroid and more of an action game although Shinobi does action better so just get that.

Okay i know its beating a dead horse and all but do you really believe that the complaints are just because its not metroidvania? Open your damn eyes. Even the infamous IGN review compares it unfavorably to LoS. The quality of the game itself is just as debated as the genre. The most frustrating part of the whole pointless discussion here is people like you chiming in and not even knowing what the damn fuss is about.
