    So I'm about to start playing Fire Emblem Awakening and I have a pack of all the DLC in the form of a .cia file that I can install with BigBlueMenu; however, if I understand correctly, there are also these Spotpass side quests that you can download in-game. Now my questions is will accessing the Spotpass content in game delete the DLC I've installed? And is there a difference between using the DLC with a .cia install of the game and using a .3dz rom?

    I'm wondering this too. Do we NEED to have games in .CIA to use DLCs + Updates ??

    The same DLC and updates work with cartridge and eshop versions all the same.
    Now I only tested installing the DLC after I had already enabled the Spotpass content and it didn't affect the DLC at all.
     
    ogopogo and Phantom_User like this.

    Like I said, it's a a package of all 15 DLC in a cia file that I can install with BigBlueMenu. Since I am playing the Japanese version though, the DLC I found are for the same region so I'm not sure if these would work for other regions or not.

    I installed the DLC .cia pack and for some reason it doesn't work with my eshop copy, it says something like "The SD card was removed" when I try accessing the DLC menu. I had to ~acquire~ a .3dz rom and start a new save file to be able to play the DLC.
    To answer the OP, I go into the spotpass menu all the time and never had my DLC deleted.

    I have the FE:A installed and I am looking just for the DLC CIA. Can you point me in the right direction?
