Xenoblade Chronicles 3D will be the first game that takes full advantage of the New 3DS' enhanced processor. As a port of the best JRPG of recent years, it plans to cram an enormous open world, great combat and memorable characters all onto a handheld.
Which means that the digital version is going to be seriously fat. Too fat, in fact, for the standard New 3DS SD card bundled with the console!
Nintendo have officially warned gamers that Xenoblade Chronicles 3D weighs in at somewhere between 4-8GB, which is larger than the default card. "The download version of Xenoblade Chronicles 3D does not fit on the microSD card included with New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems: an 8GB or larger microSD card is required to download this game from Nintendo eShop."
Not exactly ideal, but if you do plan on buying the digital version rather than a physical copy, changing your SD Card needn't be a hassle. If you already own a New 3DS or New 3DS XL, you'll simply need to remove the rear cover plate with a #0 Phillips screwdriver, remove the MicroSD card, copy the contents onto your PC and then back onto a new higher-capacity MicroSD card. Easy-peasy.
