What’s On My Nintendo 3DS?

Rachel Mii Double JumpHappy Thursday!

The other day I mentioned my top ten Nintendo 3DS games. Most of those games were physical copies. I think only two (maybe three) of them were downloads.

I was never big on digital downloads because I love to have the physical copy of the games. Yet, there are some games that are only available as digital downloads. Plus, if I wanted a game that badly, I would cave and download it.

That being said, I have a lot on my Nintendo 3DS…

As of right now, I have 19 downloads on my 3DS, but only 17 of them are actual games. I organize my games by series.

So… The first 12 games (yes, 12!) are Pokemon. I have:

  • Pokemon Red
  • Pokemon Blue
  • Pokemon Yellow
  • Pokemon Shuffle
  • Pokemon Battle Trozei
  • Pokemon Rumble World
  • Pokemon Picross
  • Pokemon Dream Radar
  • Pokedex 3D
  • Pokemon Bank
  • Poke Transporter

Technically those last four are really games. Dream Radar is kind of like a mini-game and Pokedex 3D was a collecting thing so it was like a game for me.

Next, I have:

  • Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy
  • Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies
  • Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice

Three icons, five games. So I guess that makes up for the Pokemon “games” that aren’t really games.

Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice were only available as digital downloads. I have the main trilogy on my Wii, but we don’t play the Wii nearly as often as we used to. Plus, I wanted as much of the collection on my 3DS as I could.

Followed by that, I have:

  • Tomodachi Life
  • The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages
  • The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition
  • Mario Vs. Donkey Kong Tipping Stars
  • Puzzles & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition

Tomodachi Life is a lot of fun. I remember getting it because I thought it would be like The Sims.

I have Oracle of Ages for my Gameboy Color (remember that thing…?) but I thought playing on my rechargeable 3DS would be easier than checking to see if the battery still worked on the game cartridge. My Gameboy Color still works, but the screen is so dark!

As for the two Mario games, those were kind of impulse buys. I love Mario and I love puzzles, so I thought I would try something different. I’ll admit, I stopped playing Tipping Stars because I got stuck on a level. It got pretty hard the further along you went.

Anyway, that’s what I have on there so far. I have plenty more games on my eShop wishlist.

  1. That’s a lot of Pokémon and Phoenix Wright! And I don’t mean that in a negative way.

    I have Pushmo, Steamworld Heist, Steamworld Dig, Shovel Knight, three Shantae games, and a few others I can’t remember.


  2. That is a nice collection. On my 3DS, I currently have, Bravely Default, Pokemon Red, Pokemon X, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Land, The Legend of Zelda, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, and Metroid.


  3. Nice collection! Two of my favorite series, represented so well! 🙂 I don’t get a lot of digital games, but I do have most of the Game Boy Virtual Console. It’s just a shame that Nintendo gave up on the GB VC before it got a chance to get more of the library.


    • I pretty much get anything that’s Pokemon, lol. In fact, I may do a post a post about the digital Pokemon side games.
      Anyway, I agree. There was lot more that could have been done, could have been added.

  4. I got Tomodachi Life for Xmas a few years ago. I thought it was so funny! After a bit though it kind of lost its charm. But I went back to it a few months back and it was just as funny. There is a guy on YouTube who makes a bunch of celebrity/video game characters and it’s pretty funny – mostly because of how excited he gets while playing. Haha!
