The Nintendo 3DS is home to a variety of game genres, including puzzle, role-playing and action. These games are available to purchase from online retailers such as Amazon.com or directly on the 3DS via the Nintendo eShop.
An example of a 3DS puzzle game is Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition. This 3DS game is really two games in one. Both games revolve around playing a drag-and-match puzzle system. Matching the same orb colors together creates combos that do damage to enemies on the screen.
Shing Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker is an example of a role-playing game on the 3DS. This game puts players in control of a character who is living in a world on the brink of being erased from existence. Battles in this game take place on a grid-like map. When players engage an enemy, the action breaks away to a turn-based battle.
An action game on the 3DS is Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. In this game, players hunt large monsters and use the pieces that they harvest to make new armor and weapons. While the game features a single-player story, players can also play with up to three friends online and hunt giant monsters together. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate features two new weapons that weren't available in previous Monster Hunter games, as well as new monsters.
