A new report has claimed that a popular first-party game released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2012 will be remastered for Nintendo Switch in the coming year. Since the Switch launched in 2017, we’ve seen a number of different titles remastered for the console. Generally speaking, most of these remasters (or ports) were associated with games from the Wii U, given that those titles that came on the Switch predecessor never sold very well. And while we may still see more Wii U ports in the future, it looks like Nintendo is now looking to bring back a fan-favorite game from the 3DS era as well.

According to a video game insider who goes by the name Zippoa remaster of Kid Icarus: Insurrection is currently in the works for Nintendo Switch. For those who don’t know, Uprising is the most recent entry in the Kid Icarus series since the franchise began in 1986. As mentioned, the game was released over ten years ago, which means that Kid Icarus as a whole has no not been seen or heard of in some time.

This report from Zippo claims that the new Switch version of Kid Icarus: Insurrection is being developed by Bandai Namco and will launch in an indefinite 2023 window. were related to the 3DS and its touch screen.

For the majority, Kid Icarus: Insurrection was incredibly well received when it launched on 3DS. The game has a score of 83/100 on Metacritic from critics, with the title’s fan score being higher at 8.7/10. In short, those who played the game liked it a lot.

The only downside of Uprising is that it never sold very well, which probably led Nintendo to decide to put the Kid Icarus series back on ice after its release. However, with the Switch now having such a massive install base, perhaps Nintendo thinks the game can find a new audience if it were to remaster the title for current-gen hardware.

Assuming this report is accurate, what would you think of the Nintendo remaster Kid Icarus: Insurrection switch? Would you like to get this new version of the game? Let me know in the comments or message me on Twitter at @MooreMan12.

The Wii U and Nintendo 3DS are two consoles that have taken very different paths for Nintendo. While the Wii U never caught on and only had a five-year lifespan before Nintendo released the Switch, the 3DS was hugely popular around the world and continued to receive new games well past its expiration date.

However, both consoles aren’t doing much more than gathering dust these days as Nintendo rolls around in its piles of cash from Switch console sales. It was therefore not surprising that Nintendo announced the closure of the respective eShops of the two consoles in March 2023.

Unfortunately, although many fans have called on Nintendo to reconsider its decision in the interests of preserving the game, Nintendo has not changed its mind. He recently confirmed that both eShops will close on March 23, 2023, and it was also stated that the last day to add funds to these accounts with Nintendo eShop Cards will be August 29, 2022.

It should also be noted that anyone interested in purchasing Fire Emblem Fates will need to do so a month in advance as it will be removed from the store in February 2023. On the plus side, anyone who has purchased a game on the eShop will be able to download games to their consoles for the foreseeable future. So keep going while you still can.

Forgotten local co-op and split-screen games on the Nintendo 3DS https://r4isdhcx.com/forgotten-local-co-op-and-split-screen-games-on-the-nintendo-3ds/ Sun, 10 Jul 2022 11:30:00 +0000 https://r4isdhcx.com/forgotten-local-co-op-and-split-screen-games-on-the-nintendo-3ds/ The 3DS was almost a flop for Nintendo, which is funny considering it used 3D.

The 3DS was almost a flop for Nintendo, which is funny considering it used 3D. Nintendo’s other 3D-enabled console, the Virtual Boy, has become synonymous with failure not just with them, but with video games as a whole. The first mistake was charging $250 for the 3DS, a price that even diehard fans didn’t want to pay.



RELATED: Canceled 3DS Games You Forgot Existed

2022 marks the 11th anniversary of the 3DS and things have thankfully gotten better. Nintendo made more games and lowered the price. As good as these games are on the system, from some giant franchises, they are now forgotten because the 3DS is harder to play. For those who still have a handheld and love co-op, these games must be in the library.

8 The fantastic life

The fantastic life is like a sims RPG that can be taken to extremes or played casually. Players can choose a job at the start of the game like in a typical RPG. There are offensive characters like mages and knights as well as more unusual classes like a tailor and cook.

No matter what job players choose, they can hit enemies. The goal is to help the kingdom with small tasks that apply to their job while trying to understand a deep evil that lurks nearby. Even better, four people can play the game together.

seven Final Fantasy Explorers

Final Fantasy Explorers was like this series’ version of monster hunter. Up to four friends could band together to fight climactic battles with some of this franchise’s most popular beasts, including a Marlboro.

There are even boss fights against summons like Ifrit which is one of the central themes of the game. The more time you spend in this game, the more gear players can get and thus become divine. It’s a grind without a lot of story to follow but it’s a good cooperative game for Final Fantasy Fans.


6 Heroes of Ruin

Heroes of Ruin was an early game for the 3DS that was apparently released to be the only RPG on the handheld for some time. It can best be described as Diablo-like meaning it’s a top-down action RPG with loot.

RELATED: The Best 3DS Games That Never Left Japan

Has it redefined the genre and put Diablo in its place? No, but it was a good RPG for those who were craving a new multiplayer experience on 3DS. This is another game that supported up to four players, which made challenges, like bosses, easier.

5 Luigi’s mansion

Nintendo fans are still waiting to get GameCube games on the Switch, which has been rumored for quite some time. If the 3DS hadn’t been discontinued, then perhaps Nintendo would have continued to remake GameCube classics like

Luigi’s mansion. It improved a lot of things over the original like adding 3D support which was planned for the GameCube at one point. It also added co-op where a friend could take control of Gooigi while the main player remained with Luigi. This mechanic was borrowed from the third entry where Gooigi first appeared.

4 Monster Hunter Generations

It wouldn’t be a multiplayer roster without a monster hunter title above. Portable versions of this series followed the more archaic pattern of separate areas and less front grip monster hunter world has been freed.

This series has always catered to a niche audience, so while it’s backed off a bit, the hardcore has eaten it up. Monster Hunter Generations is the best game in this series for the 3DS catalog. It’s like a series celebration or more like a greatest hits collection for you and up to three other friends.


3 New Super Mario Bros 2

New Super Mario Bros Wii was a phenomenon when it hit the Wii. It introduced a true co-op experience for the series and brought things back to 2D. This game alone made the Wii sell like hotcakes along with a few other select titles.

RELATED: Every Pokemon Game On The 3DS, Ranked (According To Metacritic)

It was odd then that a direct sequel was being made for the 3DS instead. It might not have been as smashing a hit as its Wii predecessor, but the gimmick in the room was an interesting one. There was still co-op, albeit more limited, reducing the party from four to two players.


2 Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson

Senran Kagura is a series that is often overlooked in the gaming community. They can be described as hack and slash RPGs at the level of Dynasty Warriors except with a lot more fan service. Playable characters are usually female ninjas who rip their clothes off while fighting.

Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is definitely a bit risky and can make players blush. However, as pure action games, this series reigns supreme. Among the games that appeared on 3DS, this game is the finest. Two players can team up for some lewd and gross ninja action.

1 The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes can be played alone but it is much trickier to control AI partners. This series experimented with multiplayer for years, usually sticking to a four-player setup.

Unfortunately, this game cuts the party down to three, but that’s fine because it’s more than enough. Any other on-screen link may seem a little too chaotic on a portable screen. It wasn’t the franchise’s best co-op experience, but it was better than the consensus.

You’ve seen Halo games on Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Maybe you’ve played one or two on PC, especially since Halo: Master Chief Collection hit the platform in 2019. However, you probably haven’t seen Halo on Nintendo 3DS, but did you know that he Is to exist?

Reddit user deliciousprisms recently took to the Halo subreddit to show off, well, a version of Halo running on a 3DS console. It looks a bit like those ‘demakes’ you see floating around (like that Ring of Elden a), where modders and developers take modern games back in time. It’s been around for a few years, known as “Halo Revamped”, and it’s also on the Sony PSP and even the SEGA Dreamcast!

This particular effort is a “Halo-style Quake mod” that features multiplayer, with the user above loading up Halo 2’s “Lockout” map for a quick hit. That said, we had to head to the comments to spot it, as it’s safe to say the visuals are a little different!

To access it on Nintendo 3DS, you’ll need to install homebrew – which basically requires modding your 3DS console. We don’t approve of that, but it’s interesting to see Halo running on Nintendo’s handheld all the same.

These sorts of portable Halo endeavors aren’t new. A quick YouTube search yields a few different results, including a strange original DS version that IGN mysteriously released footage from around 11 years ago. What could have been!

Would you play Halo on 3DS? Or would you rather have MS release their own handheld? Let us know below!

Emulation gives you an accessible and affordable way to play older games that can be hard to get your hands on these days. Your Android phone is capable of emulating most home and handheld consoles up to the fifth generation of consoles, but even Nintendo’s latest handhelds are no slouch for a modern smartphone.

Let’s talk about setting up and using a Nintendo 3DS emulator on your Android phone.

The best Nintendo 3DS emulator on Android

The first step is of course to choose an emulator. There are a surprising number of options, but the differences between the best ones come down to personal preference.

Citra and RetroArch are widely advertised as the best 3DS emulators. Both are open-source and available on most platforms.

RetroArch Emulator

RetroArch is capable of emulating a plethora of consoles, including 3DS, Wii, Wii U, GameBoy, PlayStation 1, PlayStation 2, SNES, Sega Genesis, and more. This is possible because RetroArch works as a kind of hub, consisting of many emulators designed for different consoles.

It’s available on Windows, Linux, Android, macOS, and iOS, but it’s also capable of running on some consoles, like the GameCube. RetroArch provides a complete list supported platforms on its website. For more details on its customization, our RetroArch Windows installation guide dives into its extensive configuration options.

To download: RetroArch (Free)

Citra emulator

Citra was the very first 3DS compatible emulator, designed for PC. It is currently available on Windows, Linux, macOS and Android. The Citra team has a wonderful game compatibility list which even ranks supported games on a scale from “untested” to “perfect” so users can see the progress of a game’s compatibility testing.

Although RetroArch has the advantage of wider availability and more supported platforms, we’ll be using the 3DS-focused Citra for this article. The Citra team has maintained consistent and substantial support over the years, and the Android app is well optimized, it even includes gamepad support!

To download: Citra emulator (Free)

Warning! About ROMs

It is our responsibility to remind you that it is illegal to obtain ROMs by any means other than extracting them from a disc or cartridge that you own. You may only extract ROMs entirely for your own use, not for distribution, from games you own. Nintendo is particularly strict when it comes to sharing and downloading their ROMs, so be careful.


However, as long as you’re not selling ROMs, you should be safe from legal trouble. When getting ROMs from online databases, make sure the source is reputable and the files are safe before downloading them. ROMs will never be EXE files and will never request better access to your device.

How to Set Up and Use Citra on Your Android Phone

Once you have downloaded Citra on your Android phone, you are just a few steps away from playing your favorite 3DS games.

Prepare your games for emulation

Before launching the app, you may want your game files to be stored in a suitable folder on your Android device. It may even be better to create a new folder titled something like 3DS Games or Citra Games.

This does not need to be prepared before launching the application, but it will make your first setup easier – when you first launch Citra, you will be prompted to select the folder from which your games will be launched. This can be changed at any time by tapping the folder icon in the top right corner.

Games on the Nintendo 3DS use a CIA extension, but must be decrypted before use – this extracted file will use the 3DS extension. You can extract the files using a tool like WinZip, but Citra also lets you extract a 3DS file from the CIA directly on the app’s home screen. Just tap the file icon, choose Install CIA, and choose the CIA file from your downloads. The rest is easy.

How to Play Games on Citra

With a small library of 3DS games ready to go, you’re ready to start playing.

  1. Launch Citra and accept the requested permissions. It can request access to the microphone, this is for DS games that use the microphone for gaming purposes.
  2. Select the games folder you prepared earlier, then press Select this directory.
  3. Once your directory of decrypted games has been selected, the home screen will list all your games, along with an icon.
  4. Tap the game of your choice to launch it. A small loading box will appear when the emulator loads the necessary shaders. After that you are good to go.


The best 3DS emulator for Android

When testing Citra, we picked two games from their compatibility list, New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Resident Evil Revelations. The first was marked “excellent” and the second was labeled “poor” on the compatibility list. We found Super Mario to be an overall enjoyable experience, with only the occasional stutter. Resident Evil, on the other hand, had some texture and model errors, as well as a crash.

We have no doubt that Citra is a great way to enjoy compatible games, and the team’s perseverance assures us that they will only continue to develop and improve the compatible games available. Citra is a simple recommendation, perhaps the best way to emulate 3DS games.

Xbox users on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X just got a stealth release, and the game in question is a former Nintendo 3DS exclusive.

In the following years it came to PC, then Nintendo Switch, then PS4 finally in 2020. And now it’s on both generations of Xbox consoles.

Upon release, the game – on which legendary developer Keiji Inafune served as executive producer – earned a 77 on Metacritic. Its user reviews score on the platform was very similar to this, reaching 8.1. Below you can find out more about the game, thanks to an official blurb straight from Inti Creates. And below, you can check out the original Nintendo 3DS trailer for the game, as there was no news that came with the Xbox version.

With the “septimal” power to create and manipulate lightning, Gunvolt faces off against the massive conglomerate known as the Sumeragi Group. Intense battles unfold against ultra-powerful Sumeragi adepts (those with septimal powers) as Gunvolt fights to keep his nation free.”

Likewise, it also introduced what would become a beloved game mechanic in the form of Mega Evolutions. It wasn’t the same golden age of games from the Game Boy Advance or Nintendo DS era, but it was a solid first step into that era considering what the 3DS was technologically capable of.


9 Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

The fire emblem the franchise enjoyed a resurgence after Awakeningwhich paved the way for stronger Intelligent Systems titles. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia was a remake of Gaiden Fire Emblem (the second main game), which was not released in Japan until 1992 for the NES.

Shadow of Valentia was well received for the way it applied tactical combat gameplay improvements learned from Awakening, as well as the great high-fantasy story carried by its two main characters. However, it has been criticized for being a bit more punitive than its recent predecessors.


8 Bravely Second: Final Layer


Bravely Second main cast members in key art.

Although he did not reach the same heights as A brave omissionSilicon Studios Bravely Second: Final Layer was always positively received as such. The series recently debuted Bravely Default 2 for the Switch, but End layer was the direct narrative sequel to the 3DS original.

It largely retains the gameplay strengths that made its predecessor so revered, namely turn-based combat using the Brave Points and Default features to strategically extend player turns. In terms of criticism, Bravely Second: Final Layer was mostly anchored from the dots to not stand alone narratively in relation to A brave omission.


seven Xenoblade Chronicles

6 Tales from the Abyss


The protagonist of Tales of the Abyss with the supporting cast behind him.

There has been a resurgence of interest in Bandai Namco Tales series thanks to the particularly strong reception of the 2021 Tales of Arise, but many longtime fans still hold many older titles in high regard. Originally released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2, Tales from the Abyss was an action-based JRPG ported to the 3DS in 2011.

Both versions of the game were generally well received, though they were criticized for a slow plot and generic anime/JRPG genre tropes. The 3DS version was specifically criticized for not improving the experience beyond the original PS2 version, but Tales from the Abyss has nonetheless been successfully carried by its entertaining combat system.


5 Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked


Key art for the Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 3DS remaster with the main cast.

While the Atlus Character the series took most of the spotlight, the parent Shin Megami Tensei the series has had more than its fair share of classics. Last years Shin Megami Tensei V proved to be one of the best RPGs on Nintendo Switch, but some older spinoffs had also seen some success.

Dragon Quest VIII key art featuring the main cast in action poses.

In a way somewhat similar to what personas 5 and Yakuza 0 have done for their respective franchises internationally, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age gave Square Enix’s other JRPG titan a well-deserved injection of world-renowned fame. However, much of this XI succeeded in doing can be attributed to the foundation which VII laid out, namely in the conception of the world.

Dragon Quest VIII: Voyage of the Cursed King became one of the best RPGs on PlayStation 2, and the 3DS port was also well received. Praise went to the classic turn-based combat, the ambitious open environments complemented by cel-shaded art direction, and the simple yet effective fantasy story punctuated by mostly tasteful humor.




3 A brave omission


The four protagonist heroes of Bravely Default in key art.

The original Silicon Studio series was one of the best Nintendo 3DS JRPGs for fans of the subgenre, and it managed to carve out its own identity among characters like Final Fantasy and dragon quest. The story follows four adventurers as they attempt to recover the crystals that hold the balance of the world in the face of a dark threat.

A brave omission was critically acclaimed for its streamlined turn-based combat, effectively blending traditional features with more modern and accessible innovations. The story has also been praised for flipping genre tropes on their heads and tackling darker subject matter.

Key of Shin Megami Tensei IV

There was a huge gap and a whole generation of consoles between Shin Megami Tensei IV and Vbecause the first was released on 3DS in 2013. CMS IV follows a samurai destined to protect a kingdom, suddenly finding himself with his companions in a larger battle between angelic and demonic forces.

It continues the turn-based combat system traditionally used in previous entries. Reception was strong thanks to the game’s classic risk-reward combat, with reviewers finding it sufficiently accessible despite its occasional difficulty spikes. Likewise, the demon trading and fusing system was particularly praised as one of the finest in the world. CMS series.


1 Fire Emblem Awakening

For smart systems, Fire Emblem Awakening might have been the last hurray for the series, but the game turned out to be the deserved, triumphant revitalization it needed. Awakening reinvigorated the series’ tactical-RPG gameplay to the best it’s ever been, along with optional difficulty and classic/casual modes.

This greatly helped the game become accessible to potential new fans and veterans alike, becoming one of the best fire emblem games in the process. And as any fan would expect, Awakening presented another sprawling high-fantasy story with a cast of characters worth investing in.

The Nintendo 3DS and its various iterations have been around for over a decade, but not every game released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop has managed to stay there the entire time after launch. While most of the time games are usually deleted due to licensing issues, sometimes it is for other reasons such as getting a remastered version on other platforms. Yet other times, it’s unclear why owners of the portable console can no longer purchase digital copies of a game.

This was due to Nintendo’s licensing rights expiring in 2013 and also Ubisoft’s acquisition of the Tetris license, which was officially announced on January 16, 2014. After Ubisoft’s acquisition, licenses for some older Tetris games have gotten rather tricky depending on each game and the region they’re released in, with only a few pre-acquisition titles remaining on digital storefronts.


9 Project X Zone Duology

Project X Zone games are Nintendo 3DS-exclusive strategy games that cross various Bandai Namco, Capcom, and Sega IPs. Thanks to this, it is quite easy to see why the two games in this series were removed from the list in 2016 and 2017, respectively. The fact that a crossover like this could happen, let alone get a sequel with the ability to launch internationally, is nothing short of a miracle.

Like most Super Robot Wars games featuring licensed characters, these types of games rarely happen outside of Japan, so it’s a shame that these two particular titles are now much harder to find.


8 Dragon Ball Z Butoden Extreme

Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden is Arc System Works’ third attempt at a Dragon Ball Z fighting game, having released Supersonic Warriors for the Game Boy Advance and Supersonic Warriors 2 for the Nintendo DS several years earlier.

It launched for Nintendo 3DS in 2015, two years before Dragon Ball FighterZ was revealed. The Japanese version of the game could also connect to another Nintendo 3DS fighting game from Arc System Works, One Piece: Great Pirate Colosseum, and through this characters from both games could fight. Although the reason for Extreme Butoden’s delisting in 2017 was never officially given, it was likely primarily due to licensing issues.


seven Mario & Sonic at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics

The Nintendo 3DS versions of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games London 2012 and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 may have launched three years apart, but both were pulled from the eStore on the 26th. December 2017.

Although the official reason was never given, many believe that this delisting was due to one or both companies losing Olympic licensing rights. A new licensing deal was likely made shortly after these two games were dropped, since Mario & Sonic launched at the 2020 Olympics in 2019. However, it didn’t come out on Nintendo 3DS and is instead an exclusive Nintendo Switch.


6 Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy Plus

Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy Plus was released for Nintendo 3DS in 2015 and is an updated version of Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy from 2011. The game basically served as a remake of Ace Combat 2 and was removed from the store online Nintendo 3DS in 2019.

The major licensing issues in the Ace Combat series don’t stem from specific characters or music, but from the aircraft manufacturers that have their products featured in the game. license were renegotiated for the series.


5 Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 1 and 2

Pac-Man And The Ghostly Adventures was released for Nintendo 3DS in 2013, while its sequel, Pac-Man And The Ghostly Adventures 2, was released in 2014. For some reason, the sequel was removed a few years before the first game.

Pac-Man And The Ghostly Adventures 2 was removed from the Nintendo 3DS eShop in 2018, while the first game was not delisted until 2020. Some have speculated that these games were removed as they were related to Pac-Man And The Ghostly Adventures. animated series. However, it’s still unclear why the two games wouldn’t be dropped from the list or at least around the same time.


4 Big Hero 6 battle in the bay

Big Hero 6 Battle In The Bay, a game based on Disney’s Big Hero 6 movie, released for Nintendo 3DS in 2014, and the Nintendo DS version of the game was also the last game released for the console.

As is the fate of many licensed games, Battle In The Bay was removed from the Nintendo 3DS eShop in 2020. Again, this removal was likely due to the expiration of the Big Hero 6 license. Unfortunately , it was the last console game to be based on the film, but there was still a level based on it in Kingdom Hearts 3.

3 Layton’s Mysterious Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaire’s Plot

The latest game in Level-5’s Professor Layton series to launch on the Nintendo 3DS, Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle And The Millionaire’s Conspiracy, launched in 2017 but delisted in February 2021, nearly two years after the launch of the Deluxe Edition of the game the Nintendo Switch.

RELATED: The Best Level 5 Games, Ranked According To Metacritic

Layton’s Mystery Journey is one of many Tier 5 games to receive an enhanced Nintendo Switch port, the others being Yo-Kai Watch and Snack World. However, the Nintendo Switch port of Yo-Kai Watch, called Yo-kai Watch 1, was never released outside of Japan, nor was the original Nintendo 3DS version of Snack World.


2 Etrian Mystery Dungeon

Etrian Mystery Dungeon, a Mystery Dungeon series game based on the Etrian Odyssey series, released for Nintendo 3DS in 2015 and delisted twice. The first case happened in 2020 when it was removed from North American, European and Australian online stores. The game was then relisted on the North American eShop in April 2021, only to be delisted again shortly thereafter.

In North America and Japan, Etrian Mystery Dungeon was published by Atlus, while in Europe and Australia it was published by NIS America, which may help explain why it never returned to those regions. .


1 Zero time dilemma

Zero Time Dilemma, the final game in Kotaro Uchikoshi’s Zero Escape trilogy, launched for Nintendo 3DS in 2016 and was pulled from the eShop in summer 2021. Since the digital version was still available in Japan after having been removed from Western eShops, the delistings are likely due to the publisher being Aksys Games instead of Spike Chunsoft in those regions.

An HD version of the game is available on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam alongside the other two games in the series, which may be another reason it was removed, although the second game, Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward , has not been removed from the list. Online Store.

The nintendo 3DS launched with a bit of a stumble. Nintendo’s last true handheld originally cost $249.99 at launch, causing such an outcry from fans that the company later lowered it to $169.99 and offered a free download. NES and Game Boy Advance titles to consumers who had paid the original price. Many also saw the platform as nothing more than a slightly bloated DS with added 3D, which many gamers didn’t use anyway.

That doesn’t mean the 3DS hasn’t welcomed another generation of excellent nintendo titles, however. The little handheld has had an extremely long life: Nintendo is only closing the eShop after more than 10 years of service. To celebrate all the joy he’s brought us, we’re looking back at his best tracks. (Note that this list focuses on physical releases rather than download-only titles.)

In no particular order, here are the eight best Nintendo 3DS games.

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS

Despite its awkward title, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS was a historic game. It was the first time Nintendo’s first fighting game series was released for a handheld, and it brought all the fun of the console series to the small screens of the 3DS. Rather than being a watered down version of a larger game, as portable ports sometimes are, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS was a complete combat experience that held up well on its own. Nintendo held 3DS-specific tournaments and provided support for the game until the eventual release of Ultimate Smash.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

This wouldn’t be a better list of Nintendo games without at least one Zelda Title. I combine Majora’s Mask 3D and 3D Ocarina of Time into a single entry because neither of them are technically new: both are remakes of legendary N64 titles. Majora’s Mask 3D brings the unique creepiness of the original and the goofy cast of glorious 3D characters, while 3D Ocarina of Time continues to prove that the original truly is one of the best games of all time. Both titles resist perfectly and play very well. If you were too young to play them when they came out on the N64 or missed them the first time around, this is one of the best ways to play them today. (You can also get the original Majora’s Mask via Switch Online + expansion pack.)

Mario Kart 7

Is it really a Nintendo handheld if it doesn’t have a Mario Kart Title? Mario Kart 7 introduces hang gliding as its new gimmick, a mechanism that can still be found in its successor, Mario Kart 8. Gliding through the skies of the Mushroom Kingdom wouldn’t be interesting if there was nothing to watch, but luckily Nintendo stuffed Mario Kart 7 full of new courses, karts and customization options. Enterprising players could compete with others online thanks to a much simpler system than in Mario Kart Wii. As Smash Bros for 3DS made for this series, Mario Kart 7 brought all the fun and excitement of karting to Nintendo’s 3D handheld.

Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest

It’s a controversial choice, I know. Before you pick me up, listen to me: While Fire Emblem: Awakening might have revitalized the series and told a much better story, Fire Emblem: Conquer Destiny an absolutely flawless map and objective design put it head and shoulders above its predecessor. The fire emblem The series was originally known for its tough strategic battles and careful management of resources alongside the ever-present threat of permadeath. Don’t bother with Fates: birthright and Revelations. Instead, watch Conquest for the best modern example of that original ethos: challenging but never unfair, engaging but fragmentary enough to fight one battle at a time.

Pokemon Sun and Moon

Here’s another controversial pick for our best 3DS games list. Pokemon Sun and Moon shook up the franchise in a major way by removing gymnasiums, one of the series’ most recognizable staples. In its place were trials, organized puzzles followed by an uphill battle. They essentially served the same purpose as Gyms, but their inclusion was still enough to excite a fanbase that remained fairly conservative throughout the series’ lifespan. Beyond the lack of gyms and a slightly too long tutorial, Sun and Moon are the most captivating Pokémon titles on the 3DS thanks to their memorable characters, interesting new Alola forms, and a unique Hawaii-based region to explore.

Kid Icarus: Insurrection

Child Icarus isn’t one of Nintendo’s biggest franchises. Apart from two series of games on NES and Game Boy and a few appearances in Smash Bros, Pit hadn’t done much until the release of Kid Icarus: Insurrection. You’ve probably noticed that series revitalizations are a common theme on this best-of list, and you’re right: Uprising brought Pit’s unique brand of high-flying platforming and combat to a whole new generation of gamers. It’s definitely worth playing while simultaneously begging Nintendo for a remake.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Speaking of revitalized series, Animal Crossing: New Leaf lands a spot on our best 3DS games list for this reason. animal crossing exists in stellar form since the GameCube, but new sheet really put the series on the map with its portability, massive to-do list, and introduction of iconic characters like Isabelle. Gamers loved hacking their towns to decorate them so much that Nintendo ended up making outdoor decorating a big part of it. New Horizons. It is difficult to overstate the effect that new sheet had on the show – small town life has never been so appealing.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is the closest thing to this list of a perfect game. It spans A link to the past another of the best titles in the series, combining everything the series is famous for and putting it into one incredibly polished package. a link between worlds features limitless exploration, a sharp and engaging cast of characters, and supremely satisfying combat. If you only play one handheld Zelda title, make it this one.
