The 35 Best 3DS Games of All Time

Nintendo / ONE37pm

Nintendo went ahead and offered the ultimate 3D upgrade for its longstanding DS handheld once March 27, 2011, rolled around. The sleek Nintendo 3DS upped the ante for fans of portable gaming by offering itself as a stereoscopic 3D-powered machine where the use of 3D glasses is nonexistent. Being able to play Nintendo's long line of first-party IPs within 3D rereleases and entirely new series entries was and is still a mind-blowing endeavor. The 3DS software library is packed to the brim with so many great experiences that cover platformers, RPGs, puzzlers, and so much more. We're here to shine a much-deserved spotlight on 35 of those games from one of the greatest handled consoles ever conceived. Here are the best 3DS games of all time.
