This fall is packed with a variety of new games (in addition to the existing library of games), which can be played on any system in the extended Nintendo 3DS family, including in 2D on Nintendo 2DS. Monster Hunter Stories, the next game in the hit Monster Hunter series, launches on Sept. 8; Metroid: Samus Returns, the return of legendary bounty hunter Samus Aran, launches on Sept. 15; and the wackiest Yo-kai adventure yet, YO-KAI WATCH 2: Psychic Specters, launches on Sept. 29.
