I forgot how to convert the blocks into GB, but NSMB2 and Harvest Moon: A New Beginning are both a little over 2000 blocks.

I think 8 blocks equals 1 megabyte.

Games on the eShop are varied in block sizes. Some of them only take up a few hundred blocks, while currently, the largest game on the eShop is Style Savvy, at over 10,000 blocks.
Stop reading my sig, you are wasting time doing so.

A single block is a megabit. Retail games on the 3DS range from 1 gigabit (1,024 megabits) to 32 gigabits (32,768 megabits), though 64 gigabit (65,536 megabit) games are possible.

Because of the megabyte / mebibyte confusion, your 2 MB memory card contains 1,907 megabits of memory (in theory), so if you're planning on going download-only, then yes, you should buy a bigger memory card.
