Nintendo's latest handheld has quickly become one of the greatest gaming systems in recent memory. With a robust library full of diverse and unique titles, there's something for everyone on this 3D-powered device. If you've held off on purchasing the platform, there's really no better time to jump on board. Even if you already have one, there's a good chance you don't have all the amazing games available. As such, we've compiled the perfect guide that highlights the best on 3DS for you right here.
25. Scribblenauts Unlimited
While 5th Cell's fourth proper installment in the Scribblenauts franchise features many of the same mechanics from the prior entries, Unlimited takes the word-building experience to new heights with a fully fleshed-out story and world to explore. Instead of just hopping from level to level, players are free to roam and gain a better understanding of the protagonist, Maxwell. Sure, it isn't profoundly deep, but its charm more than makes up for it.
24. Code of Princess
This hack and slash role-playing game is worth a look from any fan of JRPGs. With a focus on action, it's a bit more involved than a traditional game of its ilk and boasts several different modes and a staggering amount of unique playable characters. In addition to a story-centric campaign, Code of Princess also features a multiplayer mode that supports up to four players.
23. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies
Despite being a digital-only release here in North America, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies is worthy of being recognized as a proper next entry in the series. With a well-crafted story wrapped around unforgettable court cases, the latest adventure of Phoenix Wright doesn't disappoint. It also takes excellent advantage of the hardware's 3D capabilities, making this one of the most gorgeous games available on the platform.
22. Star Fox 64 3D
This entry really needs no explanation. Star Fox 64 was an amazing game back on the Nintendo 64 and it's an amazing game on 3DS. Thanks to improved visuals and the addition of 3D, this is Star Fox like you've never experienced it before. It's got the same great gameplay you remember from the original, but the fresh coat of paint really makes it feel like a new experience. Hardcore fans and newcomers alike can't afford to pass this excellent remake up.
21. Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
The Mario & Luigi role-playing games are favorites among the Nintendo faithful, and Dream Team serves up yet another charming adventure. The goofy humor is back, as Luigi hogs a bit more of the spotlight this time around. Sure, it may not be as impressive as some of the earlier entries in the series, but surpassing greatness is an incredibly difficult task.
