I noticed that this game is being released for download in all regions on the Nintendo eShop, so this led to the question of whether the game would run faster/smoother as a digital copy or from a cartridge because I remember that on the PSP having a digital copy of MHFU generally resulted in better load times than having a physical UMD. What do you guys think?

UMD is a thing of the past. Horrible loading times.

I guess it will be the same. I have MK7, NSMB2, HM ANB in digital and physical and they have the same loading times.

I'll get a physical copy of both since I really love to have them in my shelf collection. :-)

That plus the fact that I think some retailers where I live will have some pre-order extras which won't be available for download.

Since the 3DS uses cartridges for its games, there really isn't a difference in loading times between physical and digital loading times. It's just a matter of preference.

Digital = zero collector value, no box art, no manual.
I'm waiting for Bandai to release the WonderSwan/SwanCrystal II and blow both the Vita and the 3DS away.
