Default New super Mario Bros 2 taking up way too much SD card space?

I was just wondering, won't the digital copy downloaded from the E-shop take up a really lot of space on your SD card? I barely have space now, but I want to get the digital for double the points for Club Nintendo.

Keep 2,950 blocks saved for NSMB2 and your fine otherwise just buy a new SD if you don't have enough.

Honestly, digital will be over rated.

Are you kidding? I have 72 3DS Titles, including Demos and videos/apps.

The largest amount of blocks taken up by a full game is 828 Blocks, for Samurai Sword Destiny.

3000 would be crazy for a single title

How would 3000 be crazy for a single title? 3000 blocks is just under 370 MB. 370 is not that big, and most other full sized games will be much bigger. Luigi's Mansion will probably be pretty big.

You're forgetting that the games currently on the eShop were created for digital format. New Super Mario Bros. 2 is a retail title with the option to buy digitally.

Yes copy and paste the files from your SD to the new one. You need to use a computer to do this. Also shop around for a larger SD card I got one just last week for $20 and its a 32 GB one so I'm set for digital games for a while.

You're kidding me. If it takes that long I'll just go down to Gamestop.
