I understand there is an option for a system transfer so you can keep playing the dlc and games you have downloaded. I have yet to buy anything digital however. The games i own are
Mario land 3d Resident evil Zelda 3d monster hunter 3 ultimate
Do these games save to the game cartridges? I need to know because if not i can trade my 3ds in for some credit to get another game but i dont want to lose my progress on my games. --- "You see my donkey dont like people laughing, gets the impression people are laughing at him" - Master Chief GT :Shamefulanomaly
Yes, saves are on the carts. You're good to go. --- Your television viewing may be a negative influence on your life. It may lie to you. Watch out! Don't believe the robots. Eat well 5412-9925-5942. Psn-slaysme
The DLC and other 'extra data' usually saves to the SD card, however - though keep in mind, it's also often tied to the system. If you want to save the DLC/extra data, either save the SD card, copy its contents to a computer (you may need to make sure your computer can view hidden folders, first) or another SD card. The SD card contents are what the system transfer feature uses.
