Just a heads up. Does anyone know if this a good card for this price? Says the regular retail is $69.

Yes, it is quite good but you can get similar deals. I use a Sony 32GB Class 10 card in my 3DS and it was $20 also.

Thanks Jason. Which is better, Sandisk or Sony?

I have more history with Sandisk and they have never, ever let me down but the Sony card has been working great. If you get this for your 3DS and format it then you'll notice an improvement every time you close a game or an app. You know how the 3DS takes a little time to write your progress to the activity log? A fast card like this will shave a couple of seconds off of that.

Mind if I give a little advice?

First put the new card into your PC and download this formatting software:

https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_3/

Then put the card that's in the 3DS now and copy the files to your PC desktop. On mine it was just two folders, one called DCIM for images and the other for game stuff. Just copy both folders at the same time.

Put the new card into the PC. Copy those folders to the new card.

Put that card into the 3DS. All of your games and save files should be intact. Even the save states from your Virtual Console games will be there.

Format it? If you format it with a PC, you'll screw with the speed rating. Just FYI.

Edit: Yes use the link to sdcard.org to format, not windows formatting procedure.
