Nintendo's 3DS is sold with a Toshiba 2GB SD card, and these new Nintendo-branded ones are for players who wants larger SD cards.

Officially licensed SD cards were released for the Wii and had the console's logo printed on them. This time, the SD cards say "Nintendo".

Both will go on sale this December in Japan, with pricing to be decided by retailers.
