NES/GBA Total Size?

So, I've downloaded the Pokedex and Nintendo Video (but no videos). Do we have any idea if the remaining room on my SD card (or 2GB at all), will be enough for all 20 games?

The largest NES game is 1MB, Super Mario Bros, in fact is only 32KB. The largest a GBA game can get is 32MB, most don't get that high.

As long as you have 400MB free you should be in the clear. most of that just for the GBA games. If you had only 10 MB left you'd still be able to get all the NES games and still have some space left over.

Yes, it will. NES games are tiny - their sizes are almost irrelevant, and while they'll each need to be packaged in an emulator, that won't add much. GBA games aren't tiny, but they're still fairly small - the largest GBA cart was 32MB and I don't think that any of the announced GBA games used a cart that big - so they should all be around 16MB (or smaller). The whole package of 20 games shouldn't take up much more than 10% of the 2GB card that came with the 3DS.

Just remember that each games has it own emulator, so even if a game is 32KB, it should be 2-3MB with the emu (or more if they add manuals later)

All right, thanks! I knew about the size difference between a normal NES game and a Wii Virtual Console Game due to the emulator and other things, so I just wanted to make sure.
