The Best Nintendo 3DS RPGs

List Rules
Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for Nintendo 3DS at some point.

The Nintendo DS had a ton of great games and featured some of the greatest RPGs to ever appear on a handheld console. There's something about role-playing games that really capture your imagination and make you feel like you're part of another world. Your party always has colorful characters, the abilities you gain along the way are amazing, and boss battles are usually nothing short of epic. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. But since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best 3DS RPGs of all time.

This list features the most popular and best-selling RPGs that were released for Nintendo 3DS. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. Popular RPGs like Fire Emblem Awakening and Etrian Odyssey IV, which is an extremely popular JRPG, are included below, as well as a handful of lesser-known titles. Vote for your favorite video games to the top of the list.
