    Not as of yet. We aren't sure if the new 2.0 update coming out just dumps 3DS roms or if it dumps saves as well. We'll have to see.

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    DS backup gold -- unknown if it can dump new 3DS game saves (I don't know of any place that still sells this)
    R4 Save Dongle -- dumps 3DS game saves, newer games seem to be incomplete or corrupt when putting them back on a 3DS game
    NDS Adaptor Plus -- dumps 3DS game saves, unknown if newer games dumps come out corrupt like the R4 dongle. I tested it on Etrian Odyssey IV, which uses a 1MB save, seems to work fine on the 4 tries at restoring.

    Pick one.


    Newer games use a different encryption on the saves, so don't expect to be able to edit or view the save contents for newer games.
