    How do I dump a .cia file save?
    I'm reformatting my emunand and switching over to using .3ds and .3dz files so I'm wondering if its possible to get my save data before I format.

    The little arrow next to manual, it's a build-in 3DS feature. It allows you to backup saves from any game installed via eShop/CIA.
