Any Metroidlikes on the 3DS?

What I'm looking for in particular:

-Pure isolation and exploration
-very little dialogue
-Absolutely no RPG elements (other than finding items)
-Can be 2D or 3D

I know the original Metroid is available on the eShop, and I think Metroid II is as well.

SteamWorld Dig and it's worth the $8 tag.

These aren't on the 3DS, (or on Nintendo platforms) but they can be found on other platforms:

Strider, and Guacamelee. Strider does have more Metroid feel except you're a Ninja with a sword and projectile weapons.

You'll very much like Strider if you like Metroid.

Oh yes! Especially Guacamelee! with its melee combat. I only wish they utilized those fighting game-ish combos more in the campaign.

Monster Tale was for DS, but easily overlooked, in case you missed it.

Castlevania mirror of fate?

Aeterno Blade seemed like it might be, judging by the demo.

I mean, except for it sucking.

I've heard Batman described as Metroidvania.
