Now that Nintendo is selling some of its major releases as downloads via the eShop as well as retail copies, it makes it a whole lot easier to get your hands on new games. No more traveling all the way to the store and back just tap a handful of times, close your 3DS and wait a little bit for it to download while you make lunch or whatever. But with some of these games taking up a good chunk of your SD card, what happens when you delete them to make room for your newest purchase?
There's been some question as to whether deleting the game file would also delete your game saves. Obviously you can redownload any game you've previously purchased, but would you have to start all over at the beginning? Thankfully, no. Not wanting to find out for myself by testing this theory, I checked with Nintendo instead, and was told that yes, saved games are stored as separate files. So you can feel free to go ahead and delete one game in order to make room for another, knowing that when the mood strikes and you want to download the first game again, you can pick up right where you left off. Phew! I'd hate to think that I'd lose all the progress in making my Style Savvy salon such a major success!
