Every time I start up the game or soft reset, it tells me:
"Extra data not found. You will not be able to use Spotpass. Would you like to deactivate it?"
This is on a physical copy.

I just transferred all my data from a regular 3DS to the Awakening one. I never saw this on my other 3DS.

What does this mean? I still have Pr. Marth, so I'm not sure if it's an SD card thing...

That's what you think you transferred all your data but not really you didn't... It seems like you only transferred the main data but not the extra contents. Why don't you just deactivate Spotpass and simply activate it again?

Ahh! I did that and now I don't have the notification, but Prince Marth has lost his face!

Ergh it's so creepy!
Maybe it'll come back if I beat his mission again? I'll try that.

I've never heard of this before, but it sounds funny lol.
I hate my name. Pretend it's something really cool until 2023. Hopefully, I'll have a "compelling" reason by then.

Okay, he got his face back. I just had to replay the mission.

It probably had to do with that "My Unit Compendium" thing they talk about when they ask if you want to recruit a DLC character.

But still...
