Super Smash Bros. – Nintendo 3DS

This product was recommended by Matthew Paxton from Hypernia

Just like its console siblings, the Nintendo 3DS installment of the Super Smash Bros. elegantly packages decades of Nintendo’s most beloved video game mascots into a pick-up-and-play portable game. The diverse modes of gameplay and the variety of the 36 character roster will surely leave you hooked for hours on end.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

This product was recommended by Max Eiten from Fish Tank Authority

This is one of my favorite installments of the videogame franchise of The Legend of Zelda. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time is best as it was able to capture a fluid storyline, detailed terrains, body of waters, mountains, and dungeons of the kingdom Hyrule. Link’s in-game actions are immersive to his combat abilities and interaction on game objects, side missions, and NPCs. but for me what stands up the most is the ability of the character to travel back and forth in time. That can say this 3ds game should not be missed out.

Animal Crossing New Leaf

This product was recommended by Max Eiten from Fish Tank Authority

The 3d graphics of this game are exceptional! Nintendo and Monolith Soft leveled up the farming simulator genre. The spherical effect 3rd person view of the game makes me feel that there is more to this sandbox game to explore. As a “management” type of game, Animal Crossing is not only a plant, harvest, sell and build game for me. It also features real-day life interactions, from upgrading and customizing your home. Buy and sell economics, paying debts, and make friends with in-game characters.

Nintendo Selects: The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D

This product was recommended by Ludovic Chung-Sao from Zen Soundproof

Nintendo did an amazing job for this remake of one of their most successful games ever: Ocarina of Time. I’ve played the initial version of Zelda Ocarina of Time on N64. This remake is so gorgeous. Like every Zelda, you’ll incarnate Link and navigate through the kingdom of Hyrule. As your adventure progresses, you’ll become more equipped, more skilled. In this episode, you get to pick a legendary sword out of a stone, travel through time, solve riddles, and meet different tribes in Hyrule. If you’re hungry for epic adventures, play Ocarina of Time, as simple as that.

Real Cricket

This product was recommended by Miranda Yan from VinPit

This is the best game to play cricket. Its 3d design and features make it feel real. It offers tournaments, various competitions like Champion’s Cup or Master Cup, and also different leagues to play.

Asphalt 9

This product was recommended by Miranda Yan from VinPit

For all the racing lovers, this is the best 3d racing game. The graphics, sound system, and music are outstanding. It also offers 200 high-performance cars, new beautiful locations, realistic views, and a multiplayer environment. It also has endless content to stream.

Mortal Kombat 11

This product was recommended by Miranda Yan from VinPit

For the action-loving gamer, it is a good choice. It offers gamers to customize their character and create their team. This is also a multiplayer game.

Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon

This product was recommended by Hrvoje Milaković from Fiction Horizon

Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon are the upgraded editions of the Generation VII games Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. These two games feature the same setting and roughly the same plot as the original 2016 pairing, but with somewhat upgraded mechanics and graphics, as well as some additions to the game’s regular Pokemon roster. UltraSun and UltraMoon are something special as far as upgraded editions of Pokemon games are concerned. Namely, it really does its best to maintain the summer-y charm of Sun and Moon, but add some darkness to them – both figuratively and literally, as Necrozma plays a much larger role in this game – and that certainly does elevate the whole gameplay experience for the players. Another great thing about UltraSun and UltraMoon is the fact that it is not just a game for Pokemon fans! Namely, the game mechanics are quite versatile and the 3DS’s graphical capabilities really are at their best in this game. The GameBoy console has evolved a lot since the original console, probably more than any other console in terms of some larger changes, and UltraSun and UltraMoon really utilize everything the 3DS is capable of, giving you a truly magnificent and vivid gaming experience. Of course, Pokemon fans are going to be delighted with the games, but this pairing is something that even non-fans can enjoy!
