No one quite does handheld gaming like Nintendo. The company's portable 3DS console hosts some of the best games you can find on any system, whether you want to beat up your buddies in Smash Bros., wage epic wars in Fire Emblem or discover the trove of indie treasures waiting in the Nintendo eShop.
Nintendo's handheld comes in a variety of flavors: the $199 New Nintendo 3DS XL has a superior 3D display and extra processing power, while the New Nintendo 3DS ($199 to $219) has a smaller design and swappable faceplates. If you're on a budget, the $99 Nintendo 2DS offers the same fantastic game library, just without 3D capabilities. No matter your model, here are the very best games for the Nintendo 3DS.
