Always Nintendo Presents: 5 Nintendo 3DS Games You Need To Play This Holiday Season

The holidays are near and you know what that means, loads of epic games coming to the 3DS and Wii U! Although most of the titles that are featured on this list may have already been released in the past couple of days, these titles combined should be more than enough to keep you entertained for a long time!

1. Pokémon X/Y

My first choice is Pokémon X and Y. This is because like every other game in the series, Pokémon X/Y brings something new to the table whether it be 3D models, new (and old) Pokémon being featured, or cool new environments! As a matter of fact, Pokémon X/Y now has the title of 3DS title to hit the 1 million units sold mark faster than any other 3DS game!


2. Bravely Default

As you can see above, the next game on my list for games you should pick up this holiday on your Nintendo 3DS is Bravely Default: Flying Fairy. I personally don’t know too much about this game, but from what I’ve seen, there is plenty of things that keep people coming back to this game. I can see the beautiful environments and fun rpg elements but there are plenty of other things that keep the games fans coming back. If you’d like to know more about this game, check out the official Bravely Default trailer uploaded by Nintendo of YouTube right here!


3. Mario & Luigi Dream Team

My third choice for a 3DS game you need to play this holiday season is Mario & Luigi Dream Team. I chose this game because it is the Year of Luigi after all, and I think he needs some more love. This game really delivers on interesting gameplay mechanics but I think what really drags people in is the fact the game is Luigi-centered. When I say this I mean that Luigi is the base of many attacks including bowling ball-like clumps to huge hammers and ladders made out of Luigi’s. I haven’t played this game yet so I’m not too sure about the story, but come on, I know you want to slam Luigi’s face into anything you can. A brick wall? A floor maybe?

4. Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl

My fourth choice for a 3DS game you need to play this holiday season is Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl. I decided to choose this game for a lot of the same reasons I chose Bravely Default. Aside from crisp graphics and anime sequences, the rpg elements of the game really set it apart from other games in the genre. If you get the chance, you should definitely play it this holiday season as it requires lot’s of your time to finish.

5. Animal Crossing New Leaf

The final game I’ve decided to choose is Animal Crossing: New Leaf. This is a very popular game worldwide because of the vast amount of content that the game features. You can literally go years and years on this game and still find new content everyday. No lie. There’s also new content constantly being added via Spotpass so make sure to stay tuned!

So I’ve posted my five games. Do you agree with all of my choices? Any think you’d take away? Add? Let us know in the comments!
