I have a question. It says there's a 5 transfer limit. What is it tied to? The system, or the data you're transferring... or what?


I'm assuming it's tied to the data that is being transferred.

I never found an answer for this, but can you select the titles to be transferred or will everything move over automatically?

Everything moves. It's a system transfer as opposed to doing something like moving over selected files from a flash drive to a computer.

Quick question,

My friend is selling his ambassador 3ds. I asked him if I can get his games before he sells it. My question is what exactly gets overwritten? I have a lot of games on my current 3DS and wouldn't want to re-download every game I have on there, Will his eShop account take over mines or combine?

My situation: I just got the awesome Pikachu 3DSXL and already have a Blue 3DSXL that I will be giving to my wife. Pikachu 3DSXL has the promoted free downloaded Starfox that I prefer not to lose. (but maybe I will have to)

From what I gather from the thread if I do the system transfer from my Blue to my Pikachu, Blue is wiped and Pikachu receives everything from it while losing what it already had. My Blue has a bunch of saves and a couple downloaded games like Fire Emblem and Etrian Odyssey and one or two more that I want to pass on to Pikachu.

Is my best bet to get all of my collected information onto Pikachu is to do an SD card transfer\copy using my mac?

There is no redownloading software from the Nintendo store is there? Even if it recognizes you bought the game already?

Thanks for the help.

Everything gets overwritten. Meaning, all the stuff on his 3ds would take the place of your stuff on your 3ds. You'd lose everything you downloaded on yours. The account system hasn't been released by Nintendo yet.

Somebody posted about this in the topic about a 3ds that had MK7 preinstalled on it. I think they were able to redownload MK7, but I think in your case, the other games would be lost.

You CANNOT do the transfer just by moving files over from the SD card using a mac or pc.

Hmm okay. And you cannot transfer one or two files, just everything right?

On the eShop it says previously purchased software can be redownloaded for free. I don't know how system transferring to a system that already has things works, though...
