Best 3DS Games 2015
Looking for the best 3DS, 2DS or 3DS XL games launched this year? We’ve picked out the best games available for Nintendo’s latest console right now to help you decide what to buy.
With the launch of the New 3DS and New 3DS XL, 2015 is already shaping up to be a pretty strong year for the Nintendo 3DS family. We're not even in March yet, and we've seen two amazing 3DS games released.
First up is the Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, a remake of the original N64 classic exclusively for 3DS. Most 3DS gamers won't have gotten their mitts on this the first time around and we strongly suggest making this a must-buy for your Nintendo handheld.
We also got treated to the latest instalment in the Monster Hunter series - Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Thanks to a rejigging of the major components of the franchise, MH4U has turned out to be the most accessible in the series, but also one of the most graphically accomplished title for 3DS right now.
We've looked back over the last year and identified which games should be nestling among your 3DS game catalogue. This top 10 spans the period from February 2014 until February 2015.
With new processing grunt in the new 3DS consoles, expect this list to be full to burst within the next six months or so.
