Default In search of 3DS strategy titles

Hello all!

As the title of the thread says, I'm looking for some 3DS strategy titles. Games with micro management or with a similar feel to something like Sid Meier's "Civilization".

I'm not a fan of RPGs similar to Final Fantasy Tactics. I do not like the combat system.
I am definitely NOT a fan of the Harvest Moon series or any games like it.

So, with those two types of games and titles eliminated, does anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks!

I can't think of any real strategy games on the 3DS. I'd look into Fire Emblem: Awakening if I were you. It's not an RTS, it's an SRPG, but it has a very tactical turn-based combat system that should appeal to most strategy fans. It's also one of the best games the 3DS has to offer.

Thank you for the suggestion, but I'm not into RPGs with tactical turn-based combat. That's why I don't like Final Fantasy Tactics.

If there aren't any other kinds of strategy games for the 3DS at this moment, then I suppose I should ask if anyone knows of any action RPGs? I currently have Kid Icarus: Uprising.

Unlike my taste in strategy games, my taste in action games is less limited. Fighting, action RPGs, etc - it's all good as long as the game doesn't stop be every 5 minutes to explain something.

The strategy genre is sadly one of the genres in which the 3DS is lacking. With that said, there are some okay strategy games like Glory of Generals and European Conqueror 3D (both on 3DS eShop), but nothing of the same calibre as Age of Empires DS or of course Civilization Revolution DS (which you can also play on your 3DS-- get them if you haven't played them).

In terms of action RPGs, there is Tales of the Abyss.

One thing I will say in favour of the 3DS's strategy lineup is that it does have the all-time favourite strategy game, chess (i.e. Pure Chess on the eShop).
