ConsoleNameDeveloperLucca's Observations
3DSMoco Moco FriendsRacjinA saccharine-sweet creature-collecting/raising game with a bunch of magical girls raising and evolving plushies
3DSMonster Hunter StoriesCapcom/MarvelousA far more traditional turn-based RPG than other entries, with strong monster collecting and raising elements
3DSReturn to PoPoLoCrois: A Story of Seasons FairytaleMarvelous/EpicsCombines the light turn-based combat of PoPoLoCrois with the farming of Story of Seasons, resulting in a shallow, modest (but adorable) mix of both
3DSWitch & Hero III (DL only)Flyhigh WorksThe witch goes back to being stationary, but now you control a second little hero to endlessly ram enemies with
DSChildren of ManaNex EntertainmentBeautiful graphics, but otherwise a repetitive randomized dungeon-crawling ARPG
DSDinosaur KingClimax EntertainmentIt's Pokemon, but with dinosaurs instead! Combat is literally in a rock-paper-scissors format
DSLuminous Arc 2ImageepochNot terribly different from the first, can be quite difficult, endings are determined by pre-battle dialouge choices
DSRune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest MoonNeverlandGrow your farm and level up, and befriend monsters to hire them as farmhands!
GameCubeDigimon World 4BECMuch maligned for adopting an ARPG format - why would you give Agumon a sword?
GB+GBCGreat GreedNamcoEverything is named after food, otherwise a slightly weird environmentally-themed JRPG
GB+GBCQuest: Brian's JourneyAtelier DoubleA demake of the N64 game… if you considered Quest 64 a game to begin with. Taking actions builds stats

GBAZoids: LegacyAmedioIn Japan, known as Zoids Saga II; standard turn-based combat, based on the anime
JP DSNi no Kuni: Shikkoku no MadoushiLevel-5Same general story as Wrath of the White Witch, but vastly different gameplay - a literal spellbook is a necessity to draw the required runes

JP SFCPrincess MinervaAtelier Double/RiverhillsoftGIRL POWER ANIME-BASED ROAD TRIP!
JP SFCShodai Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kunTechnos JapanMore or less River City Ransom 2, but you gain actual XP instead of using cash to buy stat upgrades (for better or worse)
JP SFCSuper Robot Taisen EXWinkysoftSRPG, branching storyline, uses the SRW3 engine
