I have a question. I'm buying a white 3DSXL bundle with pre-installed MK7 on it tomorrow. Now, when I do the transfer from my old system to the new one, will everything that is installed on the new system (Mario Kart 7 most importantly) be left on there? What gets removed from the target system?

Everything gets deleted from the new system. You will have to re-download Mario Kart 7 again from the eShop free of charge of course.

Old system (source)
- whole system is reformated
- can't download Mario Kart 7 free of charge

New System (destination)
- mostly everything is transferred over
-- might have to re-download some apps
-- Swapnote resets (for me anyway)
-- eShop account from source transfers over to destination


Instructions:
- On both systems go to system settings then data management then system transfer
-- On source (old) system select as source for the transfer
-- On destination (new) system select as destination
* Must have wifi access
- Confirm on both systems
- Wait for about an hour to complete

Oh, so MK7 will DEFINITELY be available to re-download for free on the target system after I've done the transfer? That's fine then, thanks for your help!

The swapnote don't reset, simply put the old sd card on the new 3DS or copy everything from the old sd to the new. Everything such apps and swapnote notes will be there.
