    I finally transferred/upgraded to my 3DS XL and am way too happy about it. I mostly play RPGs, so I'm looking for some promisingly scary games. I loved Resident Evil Revelations, RE: Mercs (not scary, just intense!)...

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Looking into Virtue's Last Reward and Dementium: Remastered, but it seems like there aren't any really terrifying games on the 3DS.

    There's not much on the 3ds. It's more geared towards things like Animal Crossing that are light and cheery.

    How about Spirit Camera? It's sort of a fatal frame for nintendo 3ds.

    Spirit Camera's technical difficulties make me want to throw things。

    I have the game in my physical collection. That reminds me, I have to convert it to a .cia file soon.

    I find that I have to have my lights pretty much at 1000 lumens to get a response from the game itself. It's like playing on the surface of the sun, so I might just do the .pdf thing to finish it.

    Whatever anyone says, don't try Starship Damrey. It's not scary outside of a couple jump scares, and the gameplay is exceptionally blah.

    It's not out yet, but Corpse Party's coming out in the summer.

    Like others have said, there are only a few 3DS horror games, but "scary" is ultimately subjective in nature. VLR is less horror and more psychological thriller, although it definitely has its "scary" moments. You should check out Shin Megami Tensei IV, Strange Journey, Devil Survivor: Overclocked, and Devil Survivor 2: Break Record. They're not quite horror (although they definitely have some horror moments) but they're definitely "intense." Persona Q to a much lesser extent, but that one area... man...

    I remember playing that on the DS. I should pick that up.

    Yeah, I'm waiting for Corpse Party, but in the meantime, I can make my town in Animal Crossing New Leaf a scary place.
