Top 10 Best Modern Nintendo 3DS Mario Games

The Nintendo 3DS is one of those Nintendo systems with so many games! So many games so that I see there to be the classic Nintendo 3DS games, and the modern Nintendo 3DS games. The modern ones are the ones that came after the amiibo was made (or at least the games with amiibo support, so that means games made after Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam are the games that are allowed on the list (including Paper Jam)), and in this list we will be ranking the modern Nintendo 3DS Mario games, so without further ado, let's start!

The Top Ten

1 Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions

This game is, so far in my opinion the best modern nintendo 3ds mario game! As you might have realized, I'm a huge fan of the Mario & Luigi series! Although I havbe so far only played this one, Dream Team and Paper Jam, I can safely say that they're all great! Especially this one! While it might not be my absolute favourite in the series, it is one of the most original! The originality and creativity poured into the Beanbean Kingdom was insane, and the story and twists are excellent! This game is so original and easly one of the best! - darthvadern

2 Mario Party: Star Rush

Mario Party: Star Rush is hands down the most original mario party game out there! This game has the second biggest roster in the series and this game has so many different game modes! Toad Scramble, Mario Shuffle and Challenge Tower are my three favourites! Toad Scramble is the main mode! You take control of a toad and you must rescue stars that have been kidnapped by boss battles! You can also recruit ally characters like Mario, Luigi, etc, and compete through minigames! The boards are very big and you can roam free around them! There's 15 of them! While only about five of them are good in my opinion, it doesn't matter. This game is excellent! - darthvadern

3 Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros.

So while this game is definitely a huge step-down from Dream Team Bros., I still liked it. Now the bad thing is of course that the story and level design is the same as every other mario platformer! Grass, desert, beach, and yeah. Even the story is the Peach gets kidnapped cliché! Heck, even the enemies and boss battles are all from the main series! This kinda makes it remind of Sticker Star. But thankfully, the music and papercraft battles are two things that makes this game worth buying anyway! The music was so awesomne and I loved it! The papercraft battles, are in my unpopular opinion the best thing about the game, they feel very different from the normal boss battles and actually require more strategy and thinking! I don't really know why people didn't like the papercraft battles, I mean the normal bosses are just the ones we've already seen a hundreds of times like Petey Piranha, Pokey, etc. I also thought the game was fun to play, I mean at least the battle system hasn't been ...more - darthvadern

4 Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
5 WarioWare Gold

It's a decent WarioWare. - myusernameisthis

I played the demo of this game, and I got to say that it was quite entertaining. Although some minigames were kinda disturbing and strange, they were very addicting. However I'm not sure about buying the full game - darthvadern

6 Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World

I love this game! - myusernameisthis

The Wii U version was in my opinion one of the greatest games ever made! It's so nostalgic and thegraphics made everything look so real and the music, aah, nostalgia incoming! Anyway, the 3DS version definitely though is a lot worse, why? Well I'm telling you it's the graphics! Look, I'm not a retro graphics hater, but the point of this game was to show how realistic all the yarn looked, it was suppsoe to look so cute! But the pixelated graphics will ruin the experience for it, if you don't have a Wii U but want to play this game, buy a Wii U and paly the Wii U version! It's much better! - darthvadern

7 Mario Party: The Top 100

Since I haven't played many modern nintendo 3DS games, I decided to add all of the modern 3DS mari ogames since there aren't that many. This game is one that I'm kinda excited to try out. It has 100 minigames from other mario parties and it has some interesting game modes to be fair - darthvadern

8 Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'S Journey

This game is pointless, you can already play Inside Story on the 3ds via backwards compatibility. - myusernameisthis

This is a game that isn't released yet, but I'm very excited for it! I never palyed the original and Partners in Time so it's going to be interesting to play this version of Bowser's Inside Story. It looks pretty awesomne and I unlike many people prefer the 3DS graphics over the original graphics - darthvadern

9 Luigi's Mansion

I only played Dark Moon so far, but this game looks pretty lit too! You actually only explore one mansion unlike the five different mansions in Dark Moon. It looks pretty awesomne! - darthvadern

10 Mario Sports Superstars

I don't know much about it, except that Pink Gold Peach is in it and that there's five different sports in the game you can play. - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS

I've only played the Wii U version, but I can safely say that this is the bad version! You can't upload your levels on this game and it's very lackluster, stick the the original on the Wii U instead - darthvadern

12 Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
