1) Mary Skelter: Nightmares (Vita)
2) Ever Oasis (3DS)
3) Period: Cube ~Shackles of Amadeus~ (Vita)
4) The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel (Vita)
5) Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (Vita)
Such despair, puhuhuhu! The plot twists were equally predictable and shocking, and the first case whisks you away in a direction that will simply stun you. Danganronpa V3 does a really good job keeping the longest cases to the middle of the game, bookending shorter trials at the start and the end when nerves are pulled tightest. And I am still very, very angry at him, that smug sanctimonious bastard.
6) 9 Persons, 9 Hours, 9 Doors (Vita)
7) Ray Gigant (Vita)
Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy
EGGLIA: Legend of the Redcap
Final Fantasy Dimensions II
Even those these three games don’t actually count as handheld games, they’re still great and made my list an even ten.
