Fire Emblem: Awakening will eat your 3DS SD card alive

Get ready to have a lot of open space on your SD card if you plan on downloading Fire Emblem: Awakening. Also make sure you have a rather sizable card. An eShop download of Fire Emblem: Awakening is going to take up 8,579 blocks of space.

Blocks mean nothing to me. I'm glad Wii U dropped that nonsense.

Anyway, if I get the game, it'll be physical. As always. Retail games at retail, download games as downloads.

I suppose that is an issue if you're using the original packaged SD card.

I'm glad that I bought a 32GB SD card. I still have 221,000 blocks free despite having 1 retail game (VLR), 17 eShop games, 4 3D Classics, 7 VC games, 8 demos and 3 videos.

If I didn't love the physical boxes and love my collection, I would go digital all the way on the 3DS.

That's a little over 1 GB for those that prefer thinking about memory in that format. I don't like blocks either, but at least it's easy to convert at 8 blocks per MB.

I'm using a 64 gig SDXC card now so.... in Pokemon terms.... it's not very effective

I would guess that the FMVs take up a lot of space.

That is why I'm going to get the retail version, I think the dlc will take up enough space alone.

Same here with the SD card thing. Got a 32 GB SD card starving for games. This is hardly a cause for concern.

And thank God I won't have to worry ever again about cases/game cards/instruction manuals. Such a nuisance x^u

I'll be always retail. But for the digital people, get ready to get that 128 gb card from now on!

Could be a problem for people with the Fire Emblem 3DS considering it's pre-installed on it.

If only I knew how big a "block" was. :P

Won't be getting the digital version anyway.

If only I knew what this was in GBs...

Anyway, shouldn't be a problem. I have a 32GB, so this is nothing, haha. Going fully digital was one of the best things I did with my 3DS~

Should be approximately 1.14GB.

Should be 128KB. Therefore, 8 blocks equal 1MB.

Not that the size mattered to me but I'll be going the retail way too. Need another box to stack on the collection.
