Equipped with a strong story and a deep job class system, any JRPG fan will surely enjoy this title.
The Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds
Not only does the Nintendo 3DS have two of the best 3D Zelda titles on the system, it also has one of the best 2DZelda‘s of recent years. Set as the sequel to the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, this new adventure explores a familiar map with a number of new conventions. Rather than acquiring new tools and weapons as dungeon rewards, Link now has to rent his gear and lose it upon dying. Thus making the game a higher-risk and higher-reward experience than other titles in the series.
Mario Kart 7
The latest portable entry in Nintendo’s flagship kart racer, Mario Kart 7, has plenty of content to keep even the most hardcore of racers interested. New additions such as kart customization and vehicles that transform into para-gliders and submersibles make their first debut here. Even when stacked up against the more recent Mario Kart 8 for Wii U, the seventh title still holds its own with some of the best multiplayer experiences on the Nintendo 3DS whether you’ve got a room of friends to play with or want to test your skills against someone across the globe.
