    Trust me, I've searched far and wide and have played most handheld rpgs. From Bravely second, Pokemon, Monster Hunter, to Shin Megami games. Fire Emblem, Kingdom hearts; etc. I need something new and fun. * -*

    I don't really like mario games and things like that, but maybe there's some JPN gems I haven't discovered, yet? I've got a hacked 3ds so the world is my oyster. I'd appreciate feedback, please and thanks ! <3

    Well, probably you have played all I could recommend already.
    Anyway I have fonder memories of the DS, among the many on DS I would recommend these:
    SMT: Strange Journey (among my favourites)
    Soma Bringer
    Radiant Historia
    Avalon Code (never finished it, but it has its charm)

    3ds has very weak RPGs IMO. A huge letdown

    Well, I wouldn't consider Castlevania RPGS, even when they have some RPG element.
    But if that were the case: Order of Ecclesia best game ever!!!!

    Would entirely depend on how set in stone and what one expects from RPG.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 3D if you haven't played it on the Wii. Try it on 3DS.

    Great game. But on 3DS it looks too blurry and with horrible framerate.
    I would highly recommend playing it on a Wii, Wii U or emulator instead.

    Have it. Didn't really like it. Combat system was irritating to me.

    I know its not an RPG, but Zelda, you gotta love Zelda (that's not the blond boy in green tunic, that's Link: get it right)

    I would really preorder Deep Strange Journey if that was an option.
    Hell, I am dying to replay that remastered and with new endings.

    You probably didn't read my first post I've played most of these games and I don't like Mario games. ;(

    It's just a generic copy/pasta list from a previous post of mine that i use to reply to "any good rpgs....." threads.

    Somebody else could get a recommendation from it.
