Back at the start of Spring we started our usual ‘Biggest Games’ series, but didn’t get around to doing a 3DS equivalent. To be honest, there wasn’t much confirmed for the portable, regardless. We had a small collection of solid games, certainly, but they were slim pickings. From Spring onwards, however, a handful of enticing titles have been shown or indeed revealed afresh, so we think the diminutive portable is owed a hat tip for the titles it is offering in the rest of 2017.

Like our equivalent Switch lists we are sticking to games due this year, with the exception of a handful of Nindie titles that are ‘TBC’ but seem relatively likely to arrive in 2017. We can’t include the mystery Kirby game, of course, while a few key titles like Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux aren’t due until 2018. We’ve also combined retail games with download-only titles, to reflect the fact that the line-up isn’t as deep as during the 3DS’ heyday. And yes, we’ve included a Virtual Console dual release, for reasons that will be obvious.

So, with all of that said, below are a number of interesting releases headed to the 3DS, including 10 ‘main’ titles and a number of honourable mentions.
