So I bought my 3DS on release day and I have a lot of stuff on it. All the Ambassador games and many purchased games and some DLC. My system is pretty chock full and there's some spillover onto my SD card as well. (original SD, just 2 gb I think)

Now I was looking to get the New 2DS XL maybe tomorrow or soon and was wondering if someone with experience doing a data transfer could give me some pointers as to the best way to manage it all or point me to the best resources available online I could look over while I do it.

It would be nice if I could just transfer SOME of the games to the New 2DS and leave some of the stuff on the old system but I don't think it will work that way, but that's fine assuming that's true. I'll still prefer to just transfer it all all then.

Anyway, if someone could help out any and all information is much appreciated!

transfers are all or nothing.

this is the official transfer video from nintendo:

I used it myself when I upgraded..pretty straight forward.

Cool, thanks

Just watched the video and it seemed a little simpler than I was thinking it would be in my head. I should have all the stuff necessary it mentioned so no probs there.
