.3DZ is Nintendo 3DS ROM

A 3DZ file is a game file used by Gateway 3DS, a microSD card for Nintendo 3DS used to play 3DS, DS, and homebrew games. It contains a copy of the data from an original 3DS game cartridge. 3DZ files are saved in the same format as the more popular .3DS files but contain a header which indicates to Gateway that it is compatible for online play.
