A while back, I purchased a DSi for my mother with two puzzle games on the DSi store. With the points left over, I picked up Cave Story just to check it out on the handheld. All this is done under my account I created for my Wii, by the way. Recently, I purchased myself a 3DS and remembered about the transfer tool. What I am wondering is if I am able to transfer only Cave Story from the DSi to my 3DS without messing up anything on either side? Any help would be great since the other topics I searched for were either closed or pretty vague with the reply.

Yes, the transfer tool allows you to transfer only the game(s) you specify.

Awesome, thanks both of you for the quick reply! I totally want to play Cave Story on the go but don't want the wrath of my mother if I mess up her Dr. Mario game. :)

Pretty sure I've heard that your save data will not transfer and will be deleted from the DSi.

Anybody know if the DSiWare is transferable from the 3DS to DSi XL? I plan to pick a XL for the huge screens.

It is not currently possible to transfer from 3DS to anything else at all.

Thanks LordAndrew! Luckily I barely played it on the DSi (played it tons on the PC, though!) so the save file means nothing to me. :)
