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.
Check out my sound cloud! I write orchestra pieces, sometimes piano solos: https://soundcloud.com/soaringdive

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.

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

I mean, except for it sucking.

I've heard Batman described as Metroidvania.
