Buying an ambassador 3DS. Advice.

#1mhollan3Posted 11/23/2012 4:21:16 PM
I want to do the following.

1. Get an Ambassador-class 3DS off of Ebay.

2. Get a new 3DS XL.

3. Transfer the content from both MY 3DS and the Ambassador 3DS onto the XL.


Is this possibu? If not, it's not too big of a deal.

And if it is not possibu, can I link an Ambassador 3DS to my Club Nintendo account and keep the content?

Ambassador status is fully transferable. I've done it onto the purple 3DS.

Oh! Missed the third bit. You can't do that on your own. Call Nintendo and see if they'll do it for you.

Ok, so I can transfer two systems worth of content to one?

I'm pretty sure that you can only transfer one 3DS system memory to another. If you transferred the Ambassador games to XL and then transferred your 3DS's files to XL as well you would lose Ambassador status and would be unable to get it back.

Unless of course you did this in the opposite order, then you would permanently delete your 3DS's files, and would only have the Ambassador files on your XL.

Ok. Just making sure, then. What I'll do in that case is de-link my main 3DS from e-shop and just use the Ambassador one I'll be getting to transfer content to my new XL when I get it.


Last question. Can I have multiple 3DS systems linked to my Club Nintendo eShop account? I'm just going to give away my original 3DS since most of the eShop content on it is cheap/Ambassador already, such as Mario NES, Zelda, and a couple solitare/majong titles excepting NSMB2 and Paper.

Yes, it's possible, but it'll take 7 days.

You'd have to do this:
1) Transfer everything from your 3DS to the Ambassador 3DS (this would allow you to keep all your savedata, and friendcode information, while retaining the Ambassador status on the 3DS)

2) Wait 7 days, transfer everything from the Ambassador 3DS to the XL

Seven days? >_>

Theoretically, couldn't you just change the internal calendar forward seven days?
How would that factor in to the system transfer?
