Considering how many people still enjoy gaming on 3DS, we thought it would be the right thing to talk about the best games that are available on the Nintendo 3DS. So, if you are someone who still has a Nintendo 3DS with them, and they want to enjoy good games without sacrificing a lot, then you should certainly go with these games as they happen to be the best there are available at the moment.
Let’s not waste more time and have a look at the best 3DS games of 2019, shall we?
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
For those who are familiar with the Mario franchise, it should not come as a surprise that Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is among one of the many games that are related to the franchise, and for all the right reasons as well. This is the game that is made for people who are in love with the franchise.
With great puzzles that are fun as well as varied throughout the entire play through, gorgeous graphics for a 3DS game, and plenty of content to go through, the Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is one of the games that everyone regardless of the age group and gender can enjoy without any issues.
It is only held back by the fact that some of the classic levels from the original Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker are not available in the game, but that does not mean that the game does not have other enjoyable content to boot because there is a lot.
There is no denying that Pokémon is one of those intellectual properties that hold the ability to generate a good amount of revenue. Nintendo is fully aware of that and they are doing their best to do so. However, the good thing that I love about Nintendo is that even though they are milking all the franchises they have, nothing ever feels like a repetitive mess.
The same goes for Detective Pikachu, and in case you are wondering, there is a movie with the same name coming later this year. The good thing about this game is that it is presented in a masterful way, the story itself is the star of the show, and there are some amazing cases that you get to solve as Pikachu.
However, the game is rather short in its play through, and that might be an issue for some people. Other than that, Detective Pikachu is one of the finest, most clever uses of the great Pokémon IP and needless to say, it surely results in one of the most enjoyable games you could think of.
There is no denying that Mario and Luigi have had several outings so far on several different platforms. However, Luigi’s Mansion is something that Luigi gets to enjoy on his own, and honestly, I am not complaining. The game is every bit as fun as most of the other Mario outings.
The game runs really well on the 3DS, the gameplay is satisfying, the art style looks good, and the game has a rather bizarre yet amazing feel to it. Needless to say, if you are looking to have some fun, this is what you should be going for.
Sadly, the only thing that I did not like about this game is the fact that you cannot backtrack once you have finished. Meaning that you will have to start it again.
For the fans of some amazing RPG games, and the owners of Nintendo 3DS, Radiant Historia is one of the most compelling and fun-filled games available on this portable console. The game is fun for all the right reasons, and that is what we are going to be looking at today.
The time travel mechanic of this game is one of the most satisfying and engaging elements of the game, the story is one of the finest, and will last you quite a lot of hours if you are fully invested in the game. Additionally, the updated 3DS version manages to look stunning with great gameplay mechanics, and graphics.
Honestly, there is nothing to hate about the game in the first place. Everything is spot on, and the game definitely has the emotional weight to it, which is a rare site in most modern games. Needless to say, Radiant Historia is one of the best, if not the best 3DS games you can play.
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux
For the fans of Shin Megami Tensei, the Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux is one of the best reduxes available on the Nintendo 3DS and for all the right reasons as well, the game happens to be one of the best available in the market for the fans of JRPG.
There is just so much to love about this game from its distinct art style, and gorgeous graphics. The game is amazing through and through. The best part is that it is easily playable and accessible; meaning that you can just pick it up and start playing whenever you feel like. The graphics are great, the story is one of the best, and the way everything is narrated in this game makes it one of the best offerings in the series.
If it is fun you are looking for, then that is how you will be getting from this game.
The Alliance Alive
It should not come as a surprise that there is no shortage of some amazing JRPGs available on the Nintendo 3DS, or all the Nintendo consoles for that matters. The same is the case with The Alliance Alive. Being one the highly revered entry in the long list of JRPG games, the Alliance Alive is undoubtedly one of best 3D games available.
The charming visual and art style is one of the most amazing that you will get to see on a 3DS, that is backed up with an engaging world, and an amazing story. Not to mention, the combat is among one of the finest you will get to play, and the soundtrack is also among the finest.
To be honest, the only thing holding this game back is that there are some gameplay elements that are not easily explained, and the game’s story takes some time to properly mature.
Other than that, The Alliance Alive is one of the finest JRPGs that you can play on Nintendo 3DS.
There is no denying that there is no shortage of Mario spin-offs in the market, and the best part is that almost all of them are amazing. The same goes for WarioWare Gold, that focuses on the Mario anti-hero Wario.
There are plenty of good things to like about the game, with a log of microgames to choose from, a great list of play styles, as well as games, and challenges, and some amazing and hilarious voice acting despite this being a first party Nintendo game. Additionally, the game is perfect for newcomers, but will also be amazing for those who have been playing Mario spinoffs for some time now.
There are some useless unlocks that can get in the way of the progression system in the game, but overall, the WarioWare happens to be one of the best games available in the market, and it will give you a lot of enjoyable experiences throughout your journey with the game.
YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS
The last game on the list is YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS another highly enjoyable titles that offer a lot of fun and the best part about that is that the game’s art style is one of the finest. There are a lot of fun elements surrounding the game play as well, so you do not have to worry about running out of content.
With so many games available on the Nintendo 3Ds, these are the best games available that you can play this year. All these games are available easily, so you really do not have to worry about not having enough games to play.
I can assure you that with these games, you will be able to pick up your 3DS, and have a lot of fun with it as well. So, if you are in search of good 3Ds games, then you should definitely go for the games that are in the list.
