    So recently I was playing a lot of fire emblem fates and I just finished Birthright 2 days a go or so and passed to the next path which is conquest. I had like 10+ hours on it and then this happend: My friend asked me if he could try playing the game and I accepted. I didn't think about the fact that he was a little bit unexperienced with Nintendo games (He only plays games like CS:GO, LOL, Dota 2 etc.) and when he started he's new game he accidentally saved his game on my save file! Is there anyway to recover my save or am I screwed?

    tl;dr:
    Lost my fire emblem fates save by saving a game on that save file, anyway to recover?

    Specs: New 3DS XL with A9LH

    Is it the fire emblem eShop version? If it's the case, have you recently make a backup of the sd card? Else..... X_X

    Nope. Unless you've had a backup of it before, rip your Fire Emblem save.

    It remind me pokémon on the gameboy, with the unique save slot.... XD
    edit: you can use cheat code or save data editor "to speed up" the recovery....

    Yeah I know that... but I'm pretty sure you can't skip stages right?

    For future similar situations, ALWAYS backup your saves using JK Save Manager, or Save Data Manager if you aren't on CFW.

    Doesn't JKSM have a .3dsx version as well?
