Lets face it 3DS was barren as far as RPGs go. Its gotten better but still not much with just
Paper mario sticker star Crimson shroud Denpa men they came by wave Tales of the abyss Shin megami tensei Devil survivor overclocked Kingdom hearts dream drop distance
But this his year we have
Fire emblem awakening Pokemon mystery dungeon: Gates to infinity Pokemon X/Y Shin megami tensei: Devil summoner soul hackers Project X zone Denpa men 2 Rune factory 4 Etrain oddessey IV Monster hunter 3 ultimate KAIO King of the pirates
Likely to be localized this year
Dragon quest monsters: Terry wonderland 3D Bravely default flying fairy
With future titles like
Shin megami tensei IV Monster hunter 4 Unchained blades EXXIV Yokai watch Dragon quest VII
Its looking good for RPGs on 3DS.

Not really. It's bit hard to characterize. There's no actual leveling up in the traditional sense. It's all about the gear and the skills.
Funny that it is categorized as one on GameFaqs.
Direct from the GameFaqs page.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is an Action Role-Playing game, developed and published by Capcom, scheduled to be released in 2013.
GameFAQs used to classify Ocarina of Time as an "Adventure/RPG" before people started debating it... Frankly...
In MH you're entirely dependant on the items and equipment you bring/use. Your character doesn't gets stronger on its own. Your health can only be increased temporalily. Rank only exists for bragging rights and unlocking quests/gear. Quests haven't been a RPG-only thing in ages. The game is entirely skill-based.
There is more growth in Link from beginning to the end of a Zelda than in a MH character if you take out the equippable stuff... And Zelda isn't a RPG as we all know it.
