@Nintengirl - According to Nintendo's release schedule, NA will be getting a Rhythm Thief demo this Thursday (the 19th). That should help you decide.

Exactly.

I'm going to recommend 4 3DS games that have (IMO) went under the radar, and should be looked into.

Samurai Warriors: Chronicles - this is the least reccomended of the games, but still worth a look if you haven't played a Warriors game before. It's not revolutionary or unique on the gameplay front (as you pretty much hack n' slash your way through hordes of enemies), but if you're in the mood for some mindless action, you can't pick up a better title. It has quite a bit to do as well (there are tons of missions, I have put a little over 20 hours into it and have yet to complete it. There are over 40 different characters to play as, and there is even some RPG elements like leveling up, different weapons and accessories to collect). The story is pretty much an actual retelling of feudal Japanese history (even if the characters are "anime enhanced"), so it depends on whether you like Japanese history. If you've grown tired of the series' gameplay, there's not much here for you (outside of being able to switch between 4 characters at will, with the touch screen), but if you haven't played any Warriors games, you might want to check it out (it's pretty cheap now, as well).

Dead or Alive: Dimensions - probably went under the radar because of the stereotypical view of it as "the fighting game with the boobs". Seriously though, the game is actually good. While I like SSFIV, this game surpasses it in every single way (except for nostalgia and roster size), as it's not a port and made for 3DS (why some believe it's a port is beyond me). It's roster isn't as large as SF's, but it has 25 characters, so it's not small, and unlike SF, you actually have to unlock a good number of them, giving you an actual incentive to play. The story is nonsense, true, but no one plays a fighter for the story (and at least they tried putting one together, unlike SF).

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy - this game is loads of fun. It is pretty short (not unlike Star Fox), as you will only play 18 missions on a single playthrough, but like Star Fox, there are alternate missions, encouraging at least a 2nd playthrough. After that it pretty much becomes a game to top your own high scores. Also, there are around 20 different real world aircraft to unlock (along with about 5 color schemes for each), so there is quite a bit of meat for completionists. It has no multiplayer which is a bummer, but it wasn't a full priced 3DS game when it launched, and might be cheaper now (oh, it also has a number of survival missions to unlock, as well). You have full control over your aircraft (unlike Star Fox's on rails approach), but if your into arcadey action aireal games like Star Fox, you might enjoy this.

Tales of the Abyss - my most recommended game. It's a standard JRPG in many ways, but there are many modern touches, that make this a great jumping on point for genre newcomers. There are no random battles (enemies can be seen in the overworld and in dungeons), and it has a real time battle system. There are plenty of things that keep it fun for long time genre fans as well (you can still open up menus during battle to direct the action exactly as you see fit, although it can be mostly ignored if you wish. I usually just use it to tell an ally to revive me, if my character falls, other than that, the AI is really good at keeping everyone healed. There is also an enormous amount of customization to be had if you wish. There are tons of weapons, "Fonic Artes" the games version of magic, armor, and accessories to collect for your party members). Speaking of the characters, there is nothing awesome about most of them, but they're also not bad (and the voice acting is handled admirably as well), although Luke (the main character) has one of the best personalities ive seen from an RPG (instead of your generic selfless hero, he starts out as a selfish, spoiled noble, so while he is annoying at first, the game long transformation of his personality is outstanding). The story is good and will keep you quite enthralled. I'm about 45 hours into it and am not complete, so proof of it's length is evident (those who have completed it said it takes 50-70 hours to complete, depending on whether or not you complete side quests). Get it, and you will not be dissapointed.

Changed it a bit, now it's correct.

I own Shinobi for 3DS and I have to say that I'm a huge fan of the game! The gameplay is amazing, the graphics are great for a 2D platformer and not to mention, it's hard and challenging!!! I recommend Shinobi, I think u'ld like it

I almost got Tales of the Abyss and plan to next time, I got Kid Icarus Uprising and it's INTENSE so far.

I'm a big Pokémon fan but haven't bought Rumble Blast yet but I enjoyed WiiWare's first Rumble. Pokémon Rumble is a lot of fun with friends and can still be played alone (it's just not as much fun). First Rumble was pretty easy game but when it was time for Battle Royale it became harder (haven't beat the last Battle Royale). The game can also get a bit repetitive.
Crush3D has a demo in eShop so you should check it out and decide if you like it or not. I myself am a big fan of puzzle games but didn't like Crush3D's demo at all. I stay with Picross and Pullblox.
Haven't played Shinobi so can't say anything about it.

I tried the demo but had a hard time figuring out the controls. Maybe I'll get both Rumble Blast and Shinobi

Well, it can't be too bad considering I've held on to my Copy muhahaha.
Really though, this type of game/genre will go either way for most people.Virtual pet sims aren't exactly considered part of a typical gamers 'gaming' schedule.
I think Nintendo did a semi-weak job on the 3D effect in this one. It's extremely subtle until your dog comes jumping up towards the screen and licks your face.

For me, Nintendog's + Cats was nowhere near as exciting as playing the original for the first time when it hit the DS. Now THAT was a revolution in gaming, due to the crazy intuitive 'new' touch screen controls where you could wash your dog, throw frisbee's and the like with the stylus....Which all took place on the bottom screen that you actually touched with the stylus, where as in 'N + Cats' it takes place on the top screen, so you're basically touching nothing with the stylus on the bottom, so part of that virtual portable interaction is lost in the process at least visually. It's just not the same...

Personally I got bored with Tendog's + Cats after the 4th day of playing it...Wasn't exactly compelling taking my dog to tourny's which you're limmited to per day, not to mention the dog walking wasn't exactly a fun experience.. It seems pretty decent and packed full of content item wise for Virtual pet sim lovers, but for me it was just 'Alright' BTW, the Dog and cat graphics are pretty gorgeous, what a massive difference in comparison to the originals. BUT i still prefer the original game, due to the innovative gameplay/impact it had on me during the time, a time when touch screen controls were new and weren't taken for granted! I look at Nintendog's as a 6.5

BTW, Somebody convince me to get Steel Driver Eh, I'm probably just get it anyways. Looking into a little 3D virtual aquarium, the fact that it was developed by Nintendo, AND it was a launch title i missed out on plus it's super low price tag have me cravin' some killer(Ahem slow paced is more like it)submarine 3D action.

I rly wish animal crossing was released already, so I can see the rating... And then buy it :3

No need to see the rating, I'm pretty sure if you enjoyed the last games you will enjoy the new one. Nothing ever changes, stuff just gets added.

Can you play Kid Icarus without the touch screen controls? I don't want to scratch anything.

Yeah. I actually use the buttons on the right side of the 3DS instead of the touch screen. It still takes some getting used to. It's really is a great game though. Just be patient with the controls at first.

From what I've seen, Mario Tennis Open = Mario Kart 7, in how play time will go. Being a solo player myself, I don't really like going online, so the biggest appeal of Mario Kart 7 and Mario Tennis Open just doesn't cut it for me. Why did Camelot take out the RPG-mode because of those f***ing Miis? Miis worked fine enough in Find Mii. And if that isn't enough, the avatar in the handheld Mario Tennis games were bland too, with no real personality. So putting a RPG-mode into this game would've done it just fine.

Games I'm getting: None

Favorite Games: Super Metroid (SNES) / Mother 2 (Super Famicom) / Pokémon LeafGreen (GBA) / RuneScape (PC)
Playing: Pokémon X / Y (3DS) / Super Mario 3D World (Wii U)

Nothing interesting happens.
DESTROY THEM ALL!!

I totally agree. Camelot really messed up in my opinion. Miis weren't a problem, and as far as I see it, that's just a bad excuse.
