There are few things so guaranteed to bring joy to a gamer as an hour or two in the company of Nintendo.
OK, so the genres on offer may lack a little variety compared to Xbox and PlayStation but the games themselves are usually so beautifully crafted, innovative and fun to play that you won't care.
And the good news is that there's now a new reason to fall in love with Ninty all over again. Or rather two.
The New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL just launched - you can read our review of the larger model here - bringing with them faster processors which should make new games even better. But you needn't wait for new games before enjoying them, because right now every 3DS game works with every version of the system. And if you're looking for the best portable games to play on the 3DS, you've come to the right place.
