How To Transfer Data and Games from Nintendo 3DS to 3DS XL August 10, 2012Posted by Maniac in Game News.
Planning to upgrade from a Nintendo DSi or 3DS to the brand new 3DS XL? Purchase a lot of games on one device and don’t want to lose them? It’s actually dirt simple to transfer all your internal data, saves and games from one device to another.
You will need to have both devices handy in order to make use of the transfer process, the original device’s memory card, and both must be connected to the same internet-connected WiFi hotspot. Then, just follow these simple steps, and you’ll be playing all your old games on your new device in no time.
It also looks like this transfer process will work with other Nintendo DS devices, like the DSi.
UPDATE: If you have an older model DS, like the DSi, and you want to transfer its data to a 3DS, you can, just follow these instructions instead.
You should also register your new device with Club Nintendo to get an extended warranty from Nintendo on it, and some bonus points which can be redeemed for prizes or downloadable games.
Nintendo 3DS XL is launching August 19th, 2012 in North America.
