#10. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars

  • Release Data: Ubisoft, 2011
  • Genre: Strategy » Turn-Based » General

Shadow Wars is without a doubt one of the most robust titles on offer for the launch of the 3DS.

If you don’t enjoy this style of game, Shadow Wars does nothing new and will struggle to convert you.

However, if you are interested in the genre or have enjoyed titles like this before, get this game.

#9. Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked

  • Release Data: Atlus, 2011
  • Genre: Strategy » Turn-Based » Tactics

If you already own or played the DS version, this may not be the reboot you were hoping for.

For those coming to the title with a fresh face however, prepare to be impressed.

Even though the game doesn’t offer up much of an overhaul, it still remains a stellar, stylish game that handily melds strategy and turn-based RPG battle.

#8. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

  • Release Data: Intelligent Systems/Nintendo, 2017
  • Genre: Strategy » Turn-Based » Tactics

This is a satisfying, deeply strategic adventure with an engaging, personal story and beautiful presentation, full of appealing art and lovely details that come alive as you play.

But more than that, it’s also just delightfully different from its predecessors, in ways that only broaden its appeal: if you loved Awakening and Fates, this is close enough to be comfortable.

#7. Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright

  • Release Data: Intelligent Systems/Nintendo, 2016
  • Genre: Strategy » Turn-Based » Tactics

Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright is an absolute delight to play, from the battlefield to the bedroom.

If you loved its predecessor Awakening, you’ll enjoy the heightened tension and intimacy imbued in every moment of Birthright.

The series that kicked off the strategy RPG genre still has it, and you’ll enjoy getting wrapped up in the conflict.

#6. Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker

  • Release Data: Atlus, 2015
  • Genre: Strategy » Turn-Based » Tactics

With fun, strategic battles, a roller-coaster narrative that never lets up, and a fantastic sense of upbeat, Devil Survivor 2 is a full-on blast from start to finish.

If you missed out on the original release, you’re in for a treat, and if you’ve already played the DS version the Triangulum scenario adds another accessible full-length adventure to the experience.

#5. Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest

  • Release Data: Intelligent Systems/Nintendo, 2016
  • Genre: Strategy » Turn-Based » Tactics

In conclusion, Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest is an absolute must buy for all those that are previous fans of the franchise.

New players may struggle through Conquest, and they may find a better experience within Birthright.

However, for all those players that have been craving a truly classic Fire Emblem title, Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest is the game for you!

#4. Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation

  • Release Data: Intelligent Systems/Nintendo, 2016
  • Genre: Strategy » Turn-Based » Tactics

This third entry in the Fire Emblem Fates series draws gameplay from both of the previous entries while telling its own unique story.

Players customize a protagonist and then journey through the kingdom of Valla, participating in large-scale battles while upgrading their forces.

New features also allow you to build a base and upgrade its various shops and even get married.

#3. SteamWorld Heist

  • Release Data: Image & Form, 2015
  • Genre: Strategy » Turn-Based » General

Although the game is vastly different from its predecessor, the changes made provide a more robust gameplay experience.

Players recruit a party of robots and board enemy ships, defeating other robot gangs.

There are over 200 different weapons and hats to collect, giving you expansive options when customizing your party.

#2. Fire Emblem Fates: Special Edition

  • Release Data: Intelligent Systems/Nintendo, 2016
  • Genre: Strategy » Turn-Based » Tactics

This is the ultimate package for Fates fans, as it contains all the available story variants and some exclusive content.

It’s slightly harder than Birthright, but not as difficult as the demanding Conquest story.

Although the story is different, the gameplay in the Revelation story mixes the two different gameplay styles of the other variants to produce a unique experience.

#1. Fire Emblem: Awakening

  • Release Data: Intelligent Systems/Nintendo, 2013
  • Genre: Strategy » Turn-Based » Tactics

This was the first attempt at a Fire Emblem game on the 3DS, and is considered one of the finest games in the entire series.

The story is interesting, the combat is simple-to-learn, and the exploration and 3D effects breathe new life into the franchise.

Whether you’re a fan of tactical games or not, this is a must play.
