11 best New 3DS games in 2018: All the games you have to own for your New 3DS and 3DS XL

Nintendo’s New 3DS and New 3DS XL are fantastic handheld consoles, bolstered by a stellar collection of games. In addition to a batch of exclusive titles designed for the revamped system, there are over 480 old 3DS and 3DS XL games to choose from. With such a backlog of titles on offer, the real question is: which 3DS games are worth your time?

If you’re looking to get the most from your 3DS, New 3DS, 3DS XL or New 3DS XL, we’ve put together a list of the absolute must-have games around.

Best New 3DS and 3DS XL games:

1. Super Mario 3D Land

You can’t have a Nintendo console without a Super Mario title at the heart of it. It may not have been the launch title the 3DS sorely needed but Super Mario 3D Land is unequivocally the best 3DS platformer around.

Making excellent use of the 3DS’s stereoscopic tech to play with perspective, Nintendo has crafted one of the finest entries in the Super Mario series yet. Not only is it a challenge to find all three Star Coins hidden in each level, but the game keeps your toes with new gameplay mechanics throughout. In this reviewer’s opinion, once you reach the end of World 8, that’s really only the start of where Super Mario 3D Land takes off.

2.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies

Been itching to try a Phoenix Wright game? Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies is the place to start. It gets right into the action from the word go, succinctly introducing the characters of the Ace Attorney series without confusing newcomers to who they are. The superb and absurd storylines that made past entries so fantastic remain, and the addition of new cross-examination techniques means that trials rarely become a bore.

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King

Looking for a meaty RPG experience for your New 3DS? Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King is for you. A lovingly revamped version of the PS2 original, Journey of the Cursed King is both an excellent introduction into the long-running Dragon Quest series of JRPGs and meaty enough to keep you busy for hours on end. Strangely, Square Enix didn’t really bother with the 3DS’s 3D capabilities, which does diminish the experience somewhat.

But almost 13 years after its initial release, Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King still stands the test of time.

4. BoxBoxBoy

BoxBoxBoy‘s premise is simple: solve puzzles by generating boxes and using them to push switches, block lasers, climb ledges and more. Sequel to the equally fantastic 3DS title BoxBoy, BoxBoxBoy steadily teaches you the skills you’ll need to overcome puzzles before cleverly and subtly weaving them together into later levels.

Not only is this one of the best puzzle titles on the 3DS, it’s excellent for those who can’t devote enough time to playing the likes of Professor Layton.

5. Monster Hunter Generations

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate was the best entry in the series in terms of accessibility, fun and scope, but now Generations has come along to knock it off its perch. As with every iteration of the Monster Hunter franchise, Capcom has squeezed out even more enjoyment from what many could see as a tired formula.

Featuring new special attacks, combat styles and the ability to play as Felynes, this is the most comprehensive handheld Monster Hunter yet.

If you’ve been put off by the steep learning curves of past Monster Hunter titles, worry not: Generations eases you gently into the world of monster hunting.

That’s not to say this entry is easygoing, though – veterans will still find all the tough challenges the series has become famous for.
