The 3DS is easily one of the greatest handheld systems Nintendo has ever released, but admittedly it was overshadowed in its later years when the Switch arrived on the scene and games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild became top priority.

Our Kong-loving video producer Jon Cartright has taken the time to round up the best games you might have missed because you were playing the Switch. So, 3DS games from 2017 onwards - just to be clear. For your own convenience, we've also rounded them up into a concise list, and there are even review links if you want to find out more about each one. Enjoy!
