A couple of videos have popped up on YouTube that show the loading times from a couple of third party Nintendo 3DS games.

Loading a course in Ridge Racer 3D takes 12 seconds, and loading a level in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries takes around 15 seconds. Whether these examples represent what most actual load times are like is unknown.

It could be because these demos are from earlier states of the games and will be optimized in the final product. It could also be that developers have yet to fully take advantage of the system’s capabilities, meaning later games will come with improved load times.

Whatever the case, we might want to prepare ourselves for some longer load times than we’re used to with current Nintendo DS games.
