As I’ve said in other threads, the 3DS never really clicked with me, so I’m hesitant to make recommendations. But I was inspired to pull the trigger and finally get two games I’ve had my eye on for a while:
Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball - this was described as “Warioware but with a sad divorced dad as the main character” apparently you don’t actually play baseball. It’s free to play and you can buy more games but you can haggle with Rusty and talk down his prices so it isn’t too expensive.
Gotta Protectors - developed by Ancient Corp. as some sort of 8-bit throwback/tower defense type game. It’s a sequel to Xbox Live indie game Protect Me Knight which IIRC was on the IC podcast’s Xbox 360 episode.
I haven’t played them yet, so no real opinions from me, but other folks might want them on their radar!
I definitely like the Ace Attorney and Zero Escape games and I’m pretty sure Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice are still only on 3DS and phones. Zero Time Dilemma is good but isn’t really designed for 3DS the way Virtue’s Last Reward was, so if you have another platform you might prefer playing it on (ie Vita, PC, or PS4). IMO they’re all worth playing though!
