In terms of Replay Value, Story, and Challenge and I'd say SMT:DSO. There are 6 completely different endings, and there's a new game plus option to keep you actively interested each time you begin a new playthrough.
Plus, the demon auction/fusion mechanic is deep enough to offer plenty of gameplay variety, in that you'll be combining demons or simply swapping them out for new ones almost constantly. No matter how good your demon is, there will almost inevitably be one that is better still.
For what it's worth, I've logged over 200 hours on that game. ... and I don't regret a single minute of it.

bump, what do you guys think of 'code of princess' or 'samurai warriors' instead?
i just don't if i will be able to handle all the dialogue/story for the two jrpg's... i feel that the non-linear nature and variety of rewarding side quests in my adventure take a backseat for a 'personal' story for those two games.
i just got my 3ds, and i already have zelda oot and kid icarus. i need to do a bit of research on how expansive and 'replay value' driven revelations is, if it's anything like resi 2-5, i will be picking it up for sure.
i was thinking of dimensions, but i heard the ai is real dumb and can be easily exploited as well as the online being dead/slow :/
I'd vote DS: Overclocked very highly on everything but variety. There are different objectives for different missions, and bosses require different strategies and team compositions, but the game is just missions broken up by dialog segments.
