Thinking about picking up that 3DS XL +MK7 bundle. I'm reading it comes with MK7 pre-installed, I'm assuming that's on the included memory card? Anyone know how large that file might be? I'd like to upgrade the card so I'm wondering if the game will fit on the system's internal memory during the switch. Any info on the issue would be greatly appreciated.
card is approx 4 gigs, and i think mk7 is somewhere between 3k-4k blocks.(which aren't equal to gigs btw) i wouldn't bother upgrading tbh, i'm still using my original 2gig i got with the 3ds last year and it still has 8000 blocks left despite buying a good few eshop games. i would only upgrade once you're running low on blocks, otherwise don't bother as like i say, 4gigs should last you well over a year.
Nintendo seems to be making a push toward digital distribution for retail games, at least for first party titles. I prefer digital copies to cartridges so I'll probably end up needing an upgrade eventually. And I'd rather make the switch to a bigger memory card sooner than I need to, the process would probably be easier with just one title (MK7) than several titles at once.
You can copy the files from one SD card to another without issue. This is what I did when I upgraded from the 2GB SD card my system came with to a 32GB card. Simply copy the Nintendo 3DS folder on the SD card to your computer (the WHOLE thing), then copy it to the new SD card.
