If you’re ever struggling to think of what to get a friend or family member for the holidays, you can never go wrong with a video game. While a home console game at full price might be a little on the expensive side, a 3DS game could be absolutely perfect. Both personal and fun, you can’t really go wrong with showing someone you care by giving them a game they’ve been wanting. And while we can’t go over every game in the 3DS library, we’re going to talk to you about three new 3DS exclusives that are bound to get the receiver excited.

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon

The first game we want to talk about is Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon. Having played, beaten, and reviewed this game myself, I can personally vouch for it. The Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games are notorious for their deep and emotional stories, and any fan of the series should be familiar with how entertaining they are. Or, if you know someone who’s a big fan of the Pokémon main series, but has never played a Mystery Dungeon game before, take it from me: they’ll like it, and this is a great game to get them started on the series. And with over 20 hours of gameplay, it’ll definitely keep them occupied!


Currently, you can get the physical game for $10 off at $29.99 (the digital download code is still full price!), though it won’t be back in stock on Amazon until December 29th.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

Another game I’ve personally reviewed, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, is a co-op play-focused Zelda game that takes a completely untraditional path from the typical game in the series. Extremely playful and fun, this game is sure to please any fan of the series. It’s perfect to add to your collection of Nintendo games, and with the gameplay being so revolved around playing with your friends, you can rest assure that whoever is receiving this gift is going to have a blast with it. While you’re at it, pick yourself up a copy, too, so you can play together!


This game is also running for $10 off the physical copy, at $29.99. However, like Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, it’s currently out of stock, and this game won’t be back on Amazon until December 27th.

Yo-Kai Watch

The last game we want to talk to you about is Yo-Kai Watch, the 3DS’ newest hit. Similar to Pokémon, this game has you traveling around different areas with different Yo-Kai (spirit monsters) as your teammates, where you seek out bad Yo-Kai and battle them to end their negative influences over the area or people within the area. If you’ve played even the demo of the game, which is available for free in the eShop, you’ll know how fun and easy to pick up this game really is. Any fan of Pokémon is sure to enjoy this as well, as it’s very reminiscent of the older series while still being new. Yo-Kai Watch is sure to only grow in popularity, so grabbing it for your loved ones while it’s fresh is a good idea, and one that can’t go wrong!


Just like the other two, this game is also only $29.99 for the physical copy right now. However, this game is in stock directly on Amazon, which means there won’t be any wait time before it ships! Keep in mind that all these sales are only on Amazon, and while it’s not specified, will probably only last until the end of the holidays.
