3DS System Transfer

I am wondering what a system transfer from 3DS to 3DS will include when it becomes available. I am interested in gettting the new red 3DS that is coming out but would like all my data from my 3DS that I had bought around it's launch. Also I was wondering if they do make the update avaiable by then will my Ambassador thing transfer over to the new 3DS so I can download the games for free? I'm also just looking for anythoughts on the matter or please share if you have seen something offical.

Re: 3DS System Transfer

Sorry, but there has been no official word on what if any full 3DS~3DS system transfer would allow, so until Nintendo ever does announce it or releases the update that allows it, you probably should really make any eShop purchases on the basis that you can't or won't ever be able to transfer it to another 3DS.

If you would like more information on transferring(3DS to 3DS or DSi to 3DS) Read this:Re: Questions about data transfer. DSi to 3DS. 3DS to 3DS. What are the limitations?

Yes, you will be able to transfer the ambassador games to another 3DS.

Re: 3DS System Transfer

I don't believe all of the games available through the Ambassador program will be able to be transferred. I would wait for more specific details on that.

Re: 3DS System Transfer

The 10 NES games will be transferable because those will come to the public later. Not sure about the GBA games...

Don't worry. The GBA games will be transferable.

I don't believe the GBA games will be transferrable. It would be best to wait until Nintendo announces further details on this.

Re: 3DS System Transfer

The manual for the 3DS Transfer Tool (for transferring from the DSi to 3DS) says that free games are not transferred.  I suspect that the 3DS to 3DS transfer tool will be the same.  This means that your Ambassador games may not be transferrable.

Re: 3DS System Transfer

I found out from another thread (http://techforums.nintendo.com/message/47600#47600) that according to Nintendo of Europe's announcement of Europe's Ambassador Programme, they (European Ambassadors) will be allowed to transfer all Ambassador games (NES and GameBoy Advance) to a different 3DS, if they wish.  While that does not necessarily mean that we in America will be allowed to transfer our Ambassador games, it seems quite likely that we will.

 

However, I think it is a good idea to take the Nintendo rep's advice and hold tight until more details about the 3DS transfer are available.
