So I pre-ordered the limited edition fire emblem 3DS in the UK and it comes with a copy pre installed. Right now I'm not in the UK and I won't be for a few months, so I was going to buy FE for my current 3DS. So I was wondering, when I transfer systems, what happens to the extra copy of FE? Will it just disappear? Will it remain linked to the other handheld?
I looked around but couldn't find any answer, any ideas?
I believe it will just disappear, because System Transfer completely wipes everything off of the device you're transferring from, and puts everything on the device you're transferring to. Because of that, the FE on the device you're transferring to will be overwritten, and probably lost forever.
...so if you're planning on giving the copy to someone with a new 3DS, then you could probably transfer from the 2nd system, to the friend's system, and transfer from the 1st system to the 2nd system.
And that was worded more weirdly than I would've liked, but you get the picture. --- Intel i5-3470 || Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 7950 || 8GB GDDR3
Thanks for the answers guys. Unfortunately I'm living in a country that uses NTSC games while my 3DS is PAL. So I went ahead and got a digital copy and having a blast so far.
I'm planning on giving this 3ds to a friend when I get back and transfer so I'm sort of hoping that the one copy will stay on this 3ds as a nice surprise. But I'm not expecting it. Still I'm happy to double dip on a game this good!
