3DS and eshop purchases, tied to system or profile?

#1TheOffspringFanPosted 12/7/2012 6:20:00 AM
im buying a used 3ds off craigslist and besides the 10 retail games, its supposed to come with 4 eshop games

how do those work though?

he wants to wipe out the system so i dont have his swapnote data and friends, etc etc... but will the eshop purchases be gone or once i go to the store will they still show as something i can download over again?

He can delete every friend card on his friend list manually and also delete all his swapnotes. It may take a little time but it won't remove all the games that were d/l'd.

There's no such thing as a profile when it comes to Nintendo.

When it comes to anything account or Internet related, ask yourself the following question: "What's the dumbest, most idiotic possible way this could be handled?"

The answer is 9 times out of 10 what Nintendo went with.

If that's true (no profile) he could format then redownload games?
