The Nintendo 3DS is one of the most popular handheld consoles in history. Its portability, local and online co-op features, and split screen design have prompted a lot of developers to develop a ton of stunning 3DS games. In no particular order, here are some of the best 3DS games of all time.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
Ocarina of Time is a must-play for all The Legend of Zelda fans. It is the so-called main branch gamethe game that follows Link, the Hero of Time, and his time-hopping adventure to avoid a dangerous future. The 3DS version has a lot of influence, thanks to gyroscope controls, a harder post-game challenge, and guidance if you get stuck.
Fire Emblem: Awakening
The story of Robin, an amnesiac tactician, and their quest to protect the realm is very challenging as ever. Fire Emblem: Awakening is also the first game to feature a dating-sim mechanic. However, unlike its predecessors, such as Three Houses, the dating aspect is also woven into the later sections of the story.
Mario Kart 7
The 3DS enabled local gameplay via Bluetooth. So long as one person in your group had Mario Kart 7, then up to eight 3DS users are able to play. Mario Kart 7 offers 16 new tracks and 16 old ones for everyone to race on, making it one of the best party games on the consoleno TV nor internet connection.
Kid Icarus: Uprising
Kid Icarus: Uprising is a multiplayer game that is technically a third-person shooter, but it is more of a game adventure than anything. The characters'' actions are top-tier, and the gameplay is very impressive. We were a huge fan of Hades!
Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon
The Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are different from the first versions of the game (Sun and Moon) but the Ultra titles are also enhanced versions of their predecessors. It has all major stones, more Pokemon, and a much better BP-earning system for its Battle Tree. There is also a special treat for Kanto enthusiasts at the end.
Ace Attorney: Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright
Both the Professor Layton Ace Attorney titles are good on their own, but what if we said the two, you would expect them to be crossovers? Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright, a world-renowned archaeologist, is a fan of the Professor Layton series'' wonderful courtroom fights in Labyrinthia''s medieval way of punishing offenders.
If you like the classic JRPG format classic Final Fantasy games, then youll get Bravely Default. Out of the fantastic OSTs done by the Attack on Titan composer, Bravely Default features lovely hand painted maps, lovable characters, and a complicated plot youll never see in another game.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
No matter how far away you play it, Animal Crossing: New Leaf is an incredible game. There are still many other villager interactions and unique characters, making the town feel more alive. There are also a lot of things you might not want to miss, like being able to brew your own coffee.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
The amount of hours you can sink into the Monster Hunter game is incredible. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate isn''t an easy game to put down. The combat is extremely challenging, and the number of weapons and armor you can build is huge. In online multiplayer, no additional costs are required!
While many of the tutorial is still text, you may select a combat style that fits your needs with experience.
Shovel Knight is mainly inspired by Megaman, both in gameplay, art, and maybe its music. This 2D side-scrolling platformer is amazing. It can also attack enemies, dig up treasure, and even as a jump boost. Every stage is unique, and the bosses are challenging, and the customization capabilities are nothing to shy away from. It''s a must-try for every 3DS user!
Luigis Mansion: Dark Moon
Mario is adamant, but if you were ranking some of the best 3DS games, the winner is your brothers'' title: Luigis Mansion: Dark Moon. A tequila-hunting puzzle game that only arms the players with two things: a flashlight and a ghost vacuum. The maps are intelligently designed to confuse you, but it just makes it so fun.
This prequel, Luigis Mansion, is also available on the 3DS. However, Dark Moon is able to provide some better puzzles.
