Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate

Interestingly, and likely due to the limitations of the system, the game flattens the presentation of Lords of Shadow back down to two dimensions. In other words, after many lackluster attempts to make a 3D Castlevania, the developers of arguably the first truly successful one chose to step back for the title directly following it.

LittleBigPlanet Karting

The rite of passage for a successful platform series is to take a stab at a kart racer. However, as this franchise has always promised, ambitious authors can use the content engine to make whatever they'd like.

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D

In many ways, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is the perfect casual portable game. It's fairly fast, fun, and consumable in bite-sized chunks. However, on that basis, it can be argued that it might be a better fit as an inexpensive title for mobile phones, as opposed to a full priced release for the 3DS.
