First of all, I'm so glad I did not buy Fire Emblem on the e-shop and waited for the physical version.

I never made any e-shop purchase, so it won't be a problem.

But, is there something else I can lose by getting a replacement console (like the game library data...).

You lose everything saved to the system, it's that simple. If it isn't save game data you lost it, unless you saved pics to the SD card instead of internal storage.

Or you could send it to Nintendo for repair.

Ok, thanks. I only bought it six months ago so it's still under warranty. If I send it to Nintendo, do you think they'll repair it or just send me a new one?

Also, the system still work, but the battery won't charge anymore. So, is there any way to make a system backup before I get rid of it?

Just send it to Nintendo. You can't back up the internal storage as far as I know, but Nintendo will either replace your battery or give you a refurbished system. Nintendo will do a system transfer if they give you a new one as long as you request it. I requested it when I sent mine in, got a refurbished system with all my data on it back from them.

Be careful with them though, some times they ask for different things with the console. My instructions said all repairs require an SD card and my specific repair required the charger and cradle. Your requirements might be different.
