    I'm planning to sell Mario Kart 7 as I don't really have time to play it these days and the trade-in price is worth it so by the time the summer holidays come, I'll pick it up again. I do have one question though: where exactly is my save file located? Is it saved on the cartridge or in my 3DS? Whatever the answer is, does that also apply to other 3DS games?

    Thanks

    I forgot
    On the cartridge I thought...Which is why the R4i Save Dongle is required to extract them. http://r4i-sdhc.com/SaveDongle.asp This is what you would need in order to do so, and it applies to other 3DS games as well (so far).

    Is that so? Well that's a bummer. Not getting rid of it then.

    Thanks :)

    (should have asked this in the Ask section instead. Forgot about that...)

    I always thought it was in the SD card.. Oh well. Then again, if it were the SD card, the save dongle wouldn't be for the 3DS.
