Here is my list of 3DS games that you can purchase from amazon for under $20

  • Quick Notes:
  • These prices are for brand new copies
  • The prices are from the seller who is offering the best deal
  • The prices include shipping and handling costs.
  • I did not include any games that offered super savers shipping. Since you either need amazon prime, or your total order needs to be $25 or more.
  1. Steel Diver: $9.83
  2. Pilotwings: $11.93
  3. Shinobi: $11.43
  4. Super Street Fighter IV 3D edition: $18.19
  5. Nano Assault: $19.31
  6. Tom Clancy's: Ghost Recon Shadow Wars: $14.78
  7. Tetris: Axis: $14.48
  8. Super Monkey Ball 3D: $13.98
  9. Frogger 3D: $13.95
  10. Rayman 3D: $14.64


I'm an advocate for motion controls, Nintendo, and Kicking freaking Toad to the Moon!

I got a r4 card with a lot of games with my ds which I bought used. That was cheap gaming.

Maybe there will be a similar deal with 3ds too.

I sincerely hope not. Price isn't everything.

there isn't an R4 type card out for the 3ds yet, well.... you can use an R4 card with older firmwares of the 3Ds to play original DS games, but you cannot pirate 3DS games on such a device just yet, massive layers of antipiracy protecting the 3DS from running anything it isn't 100% sure is legit.

 

Great thread OP tho, even for people with a 3ds atm some nice eye openers as to prices from amazon. See nintendo also started a deal of the week type thing on the eshop in europe some great games go for half standard price each week.

Mario 3d land is a must if you like mario any bit at all.

Sonic Generations on the 3ds is actually a great game and definately the best version of it that I played (robbed 50 hours of my life)

Resident Evil Revalations is great and one of the most graphically impressive games you'll play + the only real classic resi evil 4 feeling resi evil game that exists now (only issue here is 3dsxl has no circle pad pro atm so you'd have odd controls to deal with)

Amazon best place to look for the games?

I genuinely can't give advice for online stores, Amazon pretty much doubles the price of any game being sent to me here in Ireland unless the cost is over 20euros worth which means most of the time I just go to a local game stop to get games unless they're new releases, saying that I picked up Sonic Generations in Argos think it was just under 20euros, Mario 3d land.... great game but I think the price of Mario games don't normally go down for months and years after they've came out so you'd be pressed to find a good deal on it really, but it is such a great Mario game.
