Nintendo 3DS Firmware Updated, Save Game Transfer Added March 27, 2013

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

Put down your copies of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, Nintendo has released a new update for the Nintendo 3DS for everyone and it brings a few new features that gamers might be interested in.

Many gamers have chosen to buy new 3DS games online through the Nintendo eShop and download them to their internal SD card.  The problem is, up until this point, there was no way to share game saves between a copy of the game on a physical game card or a downloaded copy.  The new firmware will allow 3DS players who have a physical copy of a new game to transfer their game’s save from the game cartridge to the 3DS’s internal SD card.  This will allow you to transfer your save to use it with a downloadable version of the game.

The downside is this new transfer feature is a one way street and there currently isn’t any way for someone to transfer a save from a downloaded game to an identical version of the game on a physical game card.

The patch may install automatically when your 3DS receives the notification of its release, or you can follow these instructions on how to perform a manual update.  You will need to have your 3DS connected to a wireless internet connection in order to update it.
