Nintendo might be focusing mostly on their home console, but they are not neglecting [VIDEO] their 3DS either. There are only four games confirmed to be released in October, so we are not exactly spoiled for choice, but this might be a case of quantity over quality.

Here are three games set to be available to buy next month on the #Nintendo 3Ds.

'Fire Emblem Warriors'

Also being released for the Nintendo Switch, this "Dynasty Warriors" style action game is a relatively big budget addition to the 3DS catalog. "Hyrule Warriors" showed that it was possible to successfully transfer the hack-and-slash mayhem to the portable console.

Admittedly, there were a few issues with the framerate and resolution, but the gameplay videos shown for the handheld version suggest that "Fire Emblem Warriors" runs quite smoothly.

Whether it is worth buying depends solely on someone's history with either "Dynasty Warriors" or "Fire Emblem." Anyone who is a huge fan of the latter and can tolerate the former will probably find quite a lot to enjoy here. If you can take or leave the main "Warriors" franchise, and have no real knowledge or love for the "Fire Emblem" characters, then we suggest thinking it through before dropping the cash.

'Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions'

A "#Mario" game is always a recent to celebrate, even when it is only a remake of a spin-off. Released originally on the Game Boy Advance in 2003, "Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga" took the loveable and iconic Nintendo characters and created a respectable turn-based RPG around them.

The original is a pretty darn good title in its own right, although one which has largely been forgotten. So, we are pretty excited to revisit the story in this remake. With graphics updated to stand alongside more recent "Mario & Luigi" games, and a brand new mini-story entitled "Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser," there is something here for returning and new players.

'Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth'

Released last year, North America and Europe can finally experience the fifth entry into the "Etrian Odyssey" franchise next October. A classic dungeon crawler; game time is divided into exploration, turn-based combat, and party building.

The story is centered around Yggdrasil, Arcania's world tree. A legend states that anyone who reaches the top of the tree will have any wish granted. The player's control a party as they attempt to survive Yggdrasil's labyrinth on their way to the top. #Fire Emblem Warriors
