    Hey all. I'm wondering if it's possible to transfer a save file from the Gateway 3DS to a retail cart. I've only found posts talking about the other way around from retail to gateway saves.

    If it's possible, please point me in the right direction :)

    Yes, there's an option to export saves from the SD card to retail games on the Gateway menu.

    It'll only work if the save was made using a .3ds rom that was a dump of the same cartridge you want to copy it to. If you were playing with a downloaded rom the save won't work with the cartridge.

    it will also only work if the game in question uses a 512kb save chip (e.g mario kart 7)

    Ah, okay. I guess I won't be able to do it in my case then. I've been playing the Japanese SSB4 and was just wondering if I could keep the save when I got the US cart :P
