Right now my Nintendo 3DS is definitely my portable console of choice. Who am I kidding? I was a Game Boy kid! Nintendo will always have my heart. So it almost goes without saying that I am super excited for the next round of 3DS games.
I present to you Prima Games Top 8 list of 3DS Exclusive Games to get Excited About:
Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
It's not often you see a big crossover that makes a difference, but Level-5 and Capcom will work their collective magic this August with Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright. In this new adventure, the fabled professor will team up with the outstanding lawyer as they attempt to unravel a mystery surrounding the land of Labyrinthia. You'll solve puzzles, deal with characters from both game universes and enjoy a terrific story. No objection from us.
Super Smash Bros. (October 3rd)
Even though the Wii U will get its own superstar version of Super Smash Bros. later this year, by no means will 3DS owners get shafted. Nintendo should produce a stellar entry in the fighting game series for the handheld, complete with solid control options, exclusive stages, online connectivity with fellow players (across both 3DS and Wii U platforms) and slick visuals and music that take full advantage of the system. Oh, and that cast of characters looks impressive, featuring a number of returning favorites and newcomers, including Mega Man and Pac-Man.
Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit (October)
No, Cooking Mama may not be a premium series along the lines of other popular Nintendo favorites, but it has an avid fan base that can't get enough of preparing food alongside the delightful Mama. Cooking Mama 5 will once again return to the kitchen, as you prepare a number of splendid dishes simply by performing actions on the 3DS touchscreen.
Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire (November 21st)
Considering how well the Pokémon X & Y titles sold last year for the 3DS and 2DS platforms, these two upcoming re-releases of older Pokémon games Ruby and Sapphire will no doubt be big hits. With a plethora of new Mega Evolutions, the ability to create secret bases and cosplay Pikachu to bond with, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will have something to offer for newcomers and hardcore players alike. Gotta catch 'em all, right?
