Topic: SD Card uses, can you backup games?

Posts 1 to 3 of 3


I know pretty much what the 3DS SD card can do, but something that was never clear to me is if it had the ability to copy the content of 3DS game saves from the game cart as backups, and the ability to reapply them to the game cart again?

Every sheep needs a shepherd
Every shepherd needs a sheep for his flock.
They are walking to the horizon of their ideas
Trampling the sprouts of freedom and despising pride
But rise above the Earth and you will see
Where this herd is heading...
It's heading to the precipices!


Well you can do that with pretty much all consoles, I was more hoping for ability to play from the SD card, or even direct integration with the UI.

it's simply an SD card for storage. Yes, you can back up games (except for maybe those with Wi-fi capabilities).

@zez: Nintendo confirmed that you can play directly from the SD card on the 3DS
