I wanted to buy the Zelda Collectors Edition 3DS but I already have a 3DS with the ambassador program and a bunch of games on it. Is there a way to get all of my old data onto the new 3DS and keep my ambassador status?
As Diver 24 stated, the Nintendo 3DS to Nintendo 3DS Transfer Tool will be available at a later time. If you want to make sure you can get the Limited Edition "The Legend of Zelda: 25th Anniversary Edition Nintendo 3DS System", the best thing to do would simply purchase it, and hold on to your original Nintendo 3DS until the Transfer Tool is released. Once it's released, you can transfer the data to the Limited Edition Nintendo 3DS, and then trade your original system in. Or, you could always just keep both systems. You never know when it'll come in handy.
Argh. Does anyone know WHEN this will be available? I have a 3DS, but I just bought the Legend of Zelda 3DS thinking that it'd be a simple SD card swap, like the Wii to Gamecube and vice versa data swaps. I want to give my "old" 3DS to my niece for Christmas. I'm trying to clear it off so I can give it to her as a "like new" gift (I still have the orginal box and everything). But I don't want to lose all of my games, my Ambassador status as well as my other data on the system. This is a little frustrating that this option doesn't already exist.
Being able to transfer 3DS data to another 3DS is unavailable for now, but it will be available in the system update, which you can download on December 8. Hope this helps!
BTW, you know how to format the system memory so it's like new, right?
You shall be able to by December 8th!!!
Check out this discussion (totally okay with the mods, too): http://techforums.nintendo.com/message/53227#53227
Yeah, yeah, whatever. By the way, the system update has actually been released early, so if you download it (for both systems), you should be able to transfer the data right now.
