Getting a 3DS soon need game recommendations

#1Madridiq8ePosted 2/16/2013 9:18:11 AM
I'm going to get the 3DS XL version...
so far i'm going to get Fire Emblem + Castlevania LoS Mirror of fate.
i'm also going to get Pokemon X or Y when they're out..
was thinking about getting Monster Hunter but I'm not sure about it cause I never played any single Monster Hunter game before.

I prefer RPGs and JRPGs.

what do you guys recommend ?

Unchained Blades- its a pretty good dungeon crawl jrpg, 30 bucks on eShop

Etrian Odyssey IV- Also another dungeon crawl jrpg, not out yet but theres a demo that alows you to transfer you're save to the retail game.

Devil Survivor Overclocked is an SRPG pretty cheap now on amazon. Atlus fans seem to love it.

Denpa Men They Came By Wave on eshop is a weird but fun little jrpg on the eShop, only 10 bucks has a demo, can transfer save from it to retail.

Crimson Shroud is a table top jrpg, really good, its like 8 bucks on eShop

There's a lot more coming this year as well, just gotta wait and im sure DQVIIr will make it this year and hopefully Bravely Default.

but one question, can I play the new Monster Hunter ? or do I have to play the older games ?

Kid Icarus: Uprising is IMO the best game overall for the system, Tales of the Abyss is great if you like RPGs and haven't played the PS2 original.

No you don't need to play any of the other ones. MonHun isn't a series for it's story it's for the gear grind. You can also transfer you're character over to the WiiU version if you have or end up having one in the future. WiiU version has online play if you need multi but dont have 3ds friends.
