@bluemage1989 Super Mario 3D Land is a must have. Very underrated imho.

Metroid: Samus Returns is another that comes to mind. You won't regret getting this one if you like Metroidvanias.

Kirby Triple Deluxe is a fun ride too.

Being more of a home console Nintendo fan I don't know much about the 3DS library so thanks for the recommendations. I'll pick up Metroid for sure but I can see it being a long time till I play as I'm a bit burnt out on MetroidVanias in general at the moment. Is Kirby Triple Deluxe the better compared to Planet Robobot?? @linq

@bluemage1989 If you like RPGs, Dragon Quest 7 is pretty easy to find at the moment, as are most of the Etrian Odyssey games.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

@bluemage1989
I think most people seem to prefer Planet Robobot over Triple Deluxe but I haven't played Robobot yet (waiting for the price to come down on that one). You can pick up Triple Deluxe for $20 or less and then get Robobot later after you've played through some of your backlog and it'll likely be on sale by then. That's how I roll, anyway.

@Rezwashere: Glad to be of some help. Hope you enjoy it!

@ReaderRagfish: I find it interesting that despite the fact that DQ VII was ported/remade first, it's easier to find than DQ VIII. Is the latter more popular, or were there just less copies of it in circulation?

Both of those seem possible. VIII is one of the more accessible and popular games in the series, while VII is more geared towards veterans. And since it was released near the end of the 3DS lifespan, they may have produced less copies like they did for VI on DS (which is somewhat hard to find these days).

Though I didn't have much trouble finding a copy of VIII. I just walked into the store on the afternoon of release date and bought it, and it only took a few months for it to go on clearance.

Just have a question. Does Detective Pikachu have multiple save files? It will be on sale for Black Friday for $29.99 @ Best Buy Canada along with a bunch of Switch games (which are upto $30 off).

Want: Mario Party Top 100, Atlus games, Psychic Spectres for the 3DS. For the Switch Kirby Star Allies, Yoshi and many others.

Finished the Alola Dex.
Now playing Stories, Crystal and Ultra Sun.

So I am thinking of getting a New 2DS XL, I have not had a 3ds or 2ds for several years. BUT I have a ton of RPGs that I have yet to finish and would love to play through those, but is the New 2ds still worth it?

RPG, FPS, Adventure,Action...oh I like 'em all!

@scubydo How else are you going to finish those RPGs?

If you're really not convinced by the long term value (which only you can determine for you), you can always buy one, take good care of it, then recover a decent proportion of the outlay by selling it on.

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

Hi all. Has anyone got any recommendations for games suitable for a 3 year old on 2DS? I’ve found some of the games I assumed would be suitable have quite a bit of text to read or have other complications making them not quite suitable. We’ve had some success with Mario 3D land.

Any suggestions much appreciated.

@Bevinator Hmmm. 3 year old on 2DS, less reading if possible. I would personally attest for Yoshi's New Island. If I remember correctly, a lot of the storytelling in the game is non-verbal and most of the directions are pictures. There's also a feature that gives you strong power-ups if you're having trouble with a level. I'm not exactly sure if that would work for them.

Also, Mario Kart 7, if you don't already have that game, is probably the best and most accessible racer on 3DS.

Just going on word-of-mouth, I might recommend New Super Mario Bros. 2 too. It seems like it might be nice for younger kids.

In the meanwhile, does anyone have recommendations for a solid sports title on the 3DS/2DS? I've been eyeing Mario Tennis Open for a while, as well as Mario Tennis for the GBC.

Thanks for the advice. The Yoshi game sounds promising, I will check it out. A lot of the games I had assumed would be a good fit have turned out to either contain walls of text or quite subtly complicated gameplay.

Cheers @Xploder9825
