Topic: Loot Heavy Games for 3DS

I'm new to Nintendo Life website and forums, so this may have been answered.

I am a massive Diablo fan and am just completing Xenoblade for the New 3DS. I love games that carry heavy loot based rewards and was wondering, outside Heroes of Ruin which I own, are there any other recommendations for loot based heavy games?

By this I mean kill enemies and treasure chest/weapon or armour drops appear such as Diablo/Xenoblade?

Look into the Excave series in the eShop. They're budget versions of these kinds of games. I have the first one and it's decent.

If you're just into RPGs in general, I'd also recommend Tales of the Abyss & Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King.

@RR529 thank you I will have a look at Excave series tomorrow. I've never heard of it before.

Bought Excave 1 to play through once I've completed Xenoblade. Appreciate the help.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, DQVIII has an alchemy pot you get early on, that lets you mix items (enemy drops, things you find in the environment, and things you buy) to create stronger, rarer items.

For example, an early learned recipe lets you combine two Medicinal Herbs (weak healing item), to create a Strong Medicine. But you can create new weapons and armor through this method as well. It does good to go through every bookcase you find, and talk to every NPC, because you'll probably find a few new recipes in each new town you visit, and even the occasional one in a dungeon.

@RR529 oh wow that definitely sounds like my sort of thing! I've thoroughly enjoyed gem crafting, firstly through Diablo 3 and now Xenoblade Chronicles.

I have also been looking at the Shin Megami Tensei series as I'm a huge fan of Pokemon and the demon collecting sounds very good. Have you played it? I forgot to answer the last part of your 1st response. I love RPGs!!! 😁

Never played Shin Megami Tensei, so I can't offer much info on that front, but the people around here who've played it seem to like it from what I've read. I also believe they tend to be more difficult than your average JRPG as well.

@GisbyM88 The demon fusion mechanic in SMT IV was pretty fun. I liked upgrading my demons through this method and choosing their attacks. Persona Q has a similar mechanic, also enjoyable.

I can recommend 2:

LBX which is pretty much the saturday morning cartoon game that allows you to collect lots of different robot parts and weapons and have real time battles. Considering the amount of parts, weapons, and other collectible parts (like components that upgrade your robot's functionality and even cards) there's a lot to unlock. Battling is quite fun and can be surprisingly challenging at some points.

Sadame is an underrated game similar to Diablo an Heroes of Ruin (western style rpg) with japanese aesthetic. You can choose between 4 different characters (a samurai, a ninja, a monk and rogue) and you face different enemies depending on the paths you choose. Theres a lot of loot in this game, mostly weapons and gems. http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/3ds-eshop/sadame

My favourite character is the ninja, I think she's the most fun to use.

@GisbyM88 Shin Megami Tensei is one of my favourite game series so I would definitely recommend that you try one! The 3DS has IV, Apocalypse and Soul Hackers so those would be a could starting point - The stories aren't related to the previous games (1, 2, Nocturne) so you can jump straight in.

I wouldn't say that the games are really "loot heavy", the items are usually for healing during battles but some are gathered for side quests. You might enjoy recruiting and fusing all of the demons available though! IV and Apocalypse have over 400 demons, Soul hackers has a lot less from what I remember.
I'd suggest starting with IV, even though it has a slow start. If you enjoy it then try Apocalypse.....or Strange Journey Redux when it comes out next year.
