About a year ago, I posted a Top 10 list of Nintendo 3DS retail games; at that point it was already difficult to narrow my scope down to only ten 3DS games.
It wasn’t long after the list was originally posted that some of the highest-profile Nintendo 3DS games of 2013 finally launched. The task of picking and choosing the best titles became far more challenging toward the end of the year, when I started thinking about revising my original Top 10 list.
Admittedly, 2014 has been slightly less consistent for 3DS games, but there have still been a few excellent new releases. Indeed, the library of “must-own” 3DS titles continues to expand.
With all of that in mind, check out the ‘revised’ Top 10 list after the break – there are several newer titles that earned a rightful place among the elites of the Nintendo 3DS.
The new downloads available this week on the Nintendo eShop should be exciting to fans of classic SEGA games – several of the newest titles include Master System/Genesis hits.
For $5.99, you can download the 3D-enhanced versions of Hang On! and Space Harrier. Along with the stereoscopic effects, Hang On! features tilt-based controls, and Space Harrier adds touch-based controls with an auto-fire option for newcomers.
Additionally, this week’s Virtual Console download - Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom can be purchased for $4.99.
There are some interesting sales on the eShop as well; Shin Megami Tensei IV (Nov. 28-Dec. 2) is just $30 – a steal, considering it is one of my personal-favorite 3DS games of 2013. Several Mario-related games are also marked down (Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, and Mario & Donkey Kong: Minis On The Move) until December 5.
Atlus is putting together another slick box set for pre-order customers who reserve their copy of Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl, set to arrive in North America on October 1.
Just like Code of Princess and Shin Megami Tensei IV, customers who pre-order their copy of Etrian Odyssey Untold from GameStop, EB Games or Amazon will be treated to a special soundtrack CD and art/design book.
The soundtrack CD featured with The Millennium Girl will include a live rendition of the game’s main theme, a rough version of the theme, and five more tracks selected by series composer Yuzo Koshiro. The art book will also include “comics and notations” from the game.
The second batch of downloadable content for Atlus’s Shin Megami Tensei IV went live on the Nintendo eShop this afternoon. You can see all the details about the DLC after the break. Continue reading
Shin Megami Tensei IV, the latest installment in Atlus’s demonic JRPG franchise, launched yesterday in North America. I picked up my pre-ordered copy, and immediately jumped into the demon-collecting and dungeon-crawling.

Now that E3 and the big Nintendo Direct presentations are behind us, so many details about what’s ahead of us have been revealed: information about the upcoming Link to the Past sequel (A Link Between Worlds), big games for 2014 such as Yoshi’s New Island and Super Smash Bros., and more about the next generation of Pokemon - Pokemon X & Y. It was an exciting time for us all, as 3DS owners – no doubt.
With the exception of the 2014 releases, I would like to go over some of the Nintendo 3DS games that I am looking forward to the most this year. Continue reading
