Puzzles galore on Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL
Getting to grips with the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL has never been more of a thrill for fans of puzzle games and mysteries. There are now loads of titles available for the handheld console that will test your mental skills, while providing hours of entertainment.
All Nintendo 3DS games are compatible with the Nintendo 3DS XL system, so if you do want to take a look back at the whole range you’ll have plenty of options available. However, we recently saw one of the most eagerly anticipated puzzlers finally arrive on both systems, packed with even more brain teasers than ever before.
Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask sees the return of the crime-solving titular hero – alongside his assistant Emmy and young apprentice Luke – as he embarks on an adventure that takes him right back to his mysterious childhood. After receiving a letter from an old friend, the Professor must head to the town of Monte d'Or, where he is charged with bringing an end to the strange and terrifying crimes of a man known only as the Masked Gentlemen.
As with all new Professor Layton games, the story also brings with it a host of puzzles to enjoy that will help the Professor get to the bottom of what’s happening around him. However, in addition to having 150 of these brain teasers, there are a host of mini games to tackle in the Professor’s Trunk and a new puzzle to download through the Nintendo Network every day from the games’ October launch date –which means 365 extra games in total.
Of course, there are plenty of other new titles that have arrived on the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL of late that might also be tempting for those lucky enough to have one. These include New Super Mario Bros. 2, the latest handheld platform adventure to feature all the stars of the Mushroom Kingdom. If you’re a fan of multiplayer games, you can get other Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL users to join in with the fun by teaming up in co-operative mode, or using features like StreetPass to challenge the high scores of others. As there’s even the opportunity to collect up to one million coins, there’s plenty to play for!
So whether it’s the magic and mystery of the Professor Layton series, or the high octane platform fun of Super Mario, the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL have you covered.
