    MicroSD Cards for the 'New' 3DS

    I want to upgrade my card but Nintendo only say a few cards are tested.

    I was thinking about getting this one -

    amazon.co.uk/San…s=1

    Would I see any issues? It's a faster card than the standard one they give you.

    Thanks

    That card should be fine.

    Is it a bit of an overkill though? I thought about getting an 8GB Toshiba for £3.49 instead, but it's class 4.

    It depends on how much you plan to purchase digital games rather than cartridges - but given that SD cards are so cheap, IMO you may as well go for at least 16GB rather than 8GB cards. I have a 64GB card in mine!

    I wouldn't worry about the speed of the card too much; class 4 cards should be fine also.

    What type of 64gb is yours and why did you go for such a big one?

    I think that it was this one, for a tenner at the time: https://www.7dayshop.com/products/kingston-micro-sd-sdhc-sdxc-memory-card-60mb-s-class-10-with-full-size-sd-card-adapter-64gb-wh2-sdc10g2/64gb

    As for the size...as I've hinted at above, the reasoning to me was simply that I may as well opt for 64GB, given that it only came with a very small price premium.
