    Hi all, I apologize if this is being put in the wrong section but it seemed like the best place to me. So I have a 3ds with Monster hunter 3 Ultimate downloaded from the eshop with a 500 hour save. I recently got a japanese new 3ds and a gateway card. If i managed to get ahold of a .cia file of MH3U and installed it on the new 3ds (when gateway releases the ability) would I be able to take the save file from my original 3ds and place it on the new 3ds with the .cia installed version of MH3U?

    There's been a few troubles doing this but to extract save files from eShop versions, you need savedatafiler and that will extract the save as a "Main" file
    But the problem is importing that file to another cia version.
    You need to start a new save on the Jap 3DS and then have savedatafiler on that too. Extract the Jap save and replace it with your original.
    Then import that back into the Jap 3DS. This most of the time fails though :( but you can give it a go
