Nintendo’s new handheld platform, the 3DS, is heralded by some as a revolution for video games. Others call it a gimmick. What matters with the platform isn’t its technology, but the games it offers. Here are ten of the best games to look forward to on the Nintendo 3DS.

#10 Resident Evil: The Mercenaries

The basic premise of the game is simple: kill as many hostiles as possible within a set time to earn the highest score. With Wi-Fi connectivity and co-op play, players can get together to kill hordes of Plagas-infected humans while customizing their characters and abilities.

“Resident Evil: The Mercenaries” is more or less the Resident Evil franchise’s version of “Final Fantasy: Dissidia.” Built on minigames in the fourth and fifth Resident Evil titles with new stages, characters and modes, “The Mercenaries” is designed for casual players.


#9 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater 3D

It couldn’t be a better time for “Metal Gear Solid 3” to get a remake. With the latest technology, the new game is said to utilize the Nintendo 3DS’s gyroscope, motion-sensor and 3D--the last of which is pretty much a given for any 3DS title.
Hideo Kojima is keeping the game under wraps for now, but there is little doubt that gamers are going to be in store for something special with this one.


#8 Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition

Playing “Super Street Fighter IV” might be all the rage on the PS3 or Xbox 360 because of its great visual style and equally good gameplay, but the lack of 3D means that the game doesn’t pop out as much as it could.

This version for the Nintendo 3DS is an attempt to remedy this slight shortcoming by putting you closer to the action. While the game can be played in the usual view, a new camera mode offers a over-the-shoulder angle for even more intense gameplay. More than just a port, players can also perform special moves by tapping icons on the touch screen.

Like many other 3DS titles, SSFIV will make full use of the StreetPass feature so you can have impromptu battles with other players in the real world, collecting figurines as you defeat them.
