not gonna tell you much about the game’s plot. The game is divided into two parts. Read through its award-winning narrative in
novel mode, and try to look for clues in an escape the room type section. There’s so many shocking and satisfying
twists in this game that it’s not enough to play through it once. Fall in love with each of their flawed and
well-written character, and feel responsible for each of them. Experience the visual novel in its finest
form, with a PlayScore of 8.91.

  1. Epic games for sure… if there's one thing I'll disagree with you, is what you said about Zero Time Dilemma being a "great conclusion"… But I'll keep the whys to myself. Play the game, folks <3

  2. I'm surprised that there even ARE 10 3ds visual novels!
    >sees #10
    That looks more like a Warriors type game but ok

  3. I like how 4 out of 10 of the entries had Phoenix Wright. That's not even being sarcastic, it's a great series. ahaha

  4. Hey I just found your channel. You should seriously consider uploading fewer videos because you're making to many. Lower it to 3 times a week instead of 6.

  5. Seriously, VN's my favorite genre but all those title look so lame. We need more adult stuff like Sonohana serie, grisaia serie or more sci-fi like Steins;Gate or Muv-Luv Alternative, not like all age VN are going to be port to 3DS but to Vita and anyway, they are better on PC (excluding Steam because they have shitty release), i am a great nukige connoisseur.

  6. Ok, first, Miles Edgeworth has no affinity for fabricated evidence.
    Second, your definition of Visual Novel is way too broad… Zero Time Dilemma, in particular, is almost entirely presented trough cutscenes instead of text. It is a very good game, but it is no more a visual novel than, say, a Telltale game.

  7. People need to remember that whatoplay game list are not their opinion but on what is scored by critics and gamers reviews. I grow bored with people saying they have lazy lists. These are not based on their personal opinion.

  8. I love visual novels! they are amazing! check out my 3ds collection in my channel and subscribe!!

  9. Phoenix Wright took over a chunk of this list, I love it.

    I was hoping Zero escape would be top, which I love more a little more than Phoenix

  10. For real, when are you guys going to stop showing wrong clips og Hakuoki 3DS? The 3DS version is only a visual novel, you don't get to fight and there is only pictures with text. It's the second time you show this game on your channel with wrong clips

  11. ds recommendations: trace memory, hotel dusk, otometeki love revolution (japanese, korean, and also fan-translated engrish patch ; D D) which is an otome game i loooove

  12. Look I love Proffessor Layton games but I didn't like how you put so many of it on the list. I was wanting something new.

  13. Anyone else feel like this is less of a list of good 3DS visual novels and more of a list for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney??
