Games on this list will not run on the original 3DS hardware family, due to needing the improved hardware of the "New" line.
This should not be confused with List of Nintendo 3DS-exclusive video games, which lists games that only came out for the 3DS platform vs. 3DS games that can only run on "New" 3DS hardware.
This list should also not be confused with games enhanced for New Nintendo 3DS systems, which can play on original 3DS hardware, but have added benefits for "New" 3DS hardware.
