Hi all. I'm looking at my 3DS collection right now and it's hit me that I have like, barely any 3rd party 3DS games. I have quite a little collection but 10/13 of my games are 1st party Nintendo games. (with the 3rd party ones being Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D, Resident Evil: Revelations and Naruto Powerful Shippuden).
What 3rd party 3DS games would you recommend are worth a purchase? I'm looking at Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate (I enjoyed the demo), Project X Zone and Tales of the Abyss 3D, but other than that, I don't know many other 3rd party 3DS games.
SMT IV and SMT:DS Soul Hackers come to mind as well as Devil Survivor: Overclocked. Also if you can find Heroes of Ruin and Spirit camera at about $10-20 range. I bought both at full retail on release and don't regret it but try to find them at reduced prices.
Tales of the Abyss, Kingdom Hearts 3D, Virtue's Last Reward, Etrian Odyssey IV, Project X Zone, Devil Survivor: Overclocked, Shinobi, Soul Hackers, and Scribblenauts Unlimited were all worthy investments for me. In fact, two of those games are in my top 3 longest playtime (Tales and DS:O).
Currently Playing: Project X Zone, Legend of Zelda OoA, Animal Crossing: New Leaf 3DS FC: 4167-4549-4028 (Feel free to add, message to be added back!)
