I know it comes with a 2 gb SD card. If I buy a 4 gb or so, will it automatically format it for the 3DS? Also, is the one included, empty when you get it, or is it already formatted for the 3DS?

Put it this way...
I have a 32 GB card, that I had used for a few months before I even got a 3DS, I then put this already used SD card, already with files on it, and it still worked. So as far as I'm aware, no formatting is required. Simply put it in, and it'll work, that's it.

My understanding is that as long as your new card is FAT32 formatted, the 3DS will just add whatever it needs to the card, no special formatting needed.

When I bought a new 8GB SDHC card, I just slapped in and turned it on, no problems, no questions asked.
