Transferring Games to Your New Nintendo 3DS Involves A LotPrepare to have a Screwdriver, plus an SD card reader.
Normally, if you wanted to transfer your content from one Nintendo 3DS to another, all you had to do was find the option in both systems, hit a few buttom prompts, and you were on your way. Doing it on your New Nintendo 3DS is going to be a little bit trickier. Before the process begins, here’s a quick rundown of what you’ll need:
- The existing 3DS system
- The system’s SD card
- A #0 (the really tiny ones) Phillips Head Screwdriver
- The New Nintendo 3DS
- Micro SD card
- A card reader that can read both cards
- A computer
Once you have all that set up, just watch the video above, which basically has you going through the normal transfer process, only unscrewing the back panel of the new 3DS to access the micro SD card, feeding them into the computer, and copying the files over that way.
There is a Wireless Transfer option listed in the video, but Nintendo has yet to clarify on what that entails, so let us know if you happen to choose that when your new 3DS comes!
