I just found my old 3DS XL and I want to do a system transfer but I already have a copy of New Leaf on both my 2DS XL and my old system. What happens if I do a system transfer. Will I lose my progress in both games?

Want: Mario Party Top 100, Atlus games, Psychic Spectres for the 3DS. For the Switch Kirby Star Allies, Yoshi and many others.

Finished the Alola Dex.
Now playing Gold and Ultra Sun.

The account in the new system will be completely replaced by the one in the old.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Here's hoping that someday Nintendo figures out that Sony's method of online purchases is the correct method.

I have another question. Doing a system format on the target system won’t get rid of the games will it? I downloaded three games on my Pokeball 2DS XL, one of them being the duplicate copy of New Leaf. Which I don’t mind losing but I really don’t want to lose Hatsune Miku.

According to Nintendo:

The following information will be lost after formatting the system memory:

-All data in the System Memory (including friend list, Notifications, and step count)-
-System Settings data
-Built-in software save data
-Software update data
-Data stored on the SD Card, with the exception of photos and videos that you've recorded, will be invalidated. --Any downloaded software will need to be redownloaded after the format
-Downloadable software save data
-All photos in the System Memory
-All other extra data
-The link to a Nintendo Network ID and any associated Nintendo eShop licenses and funds
->Nintendo eShop software licenses and funds will not be removed if a Nintendo Network ID has not been linked
->A Nintendo Network ID can be only linked to a different system by performing a system transfer

If you have a NNID linked to it, you should probably contact nintendo and ask them to unlink it from your 2DS so you can use it again on a different console. Just explain your situation and they should help you.

Yeah. Giving up a copy of New Leaf is a bad idea. At least try to have it transferred to another device (or perhaps another account so that it doesn't go to waste).

Would it be possible to transfer the save data, I wonder?

Nope only with a direct system transfer.

Any other kind will end up in lost save data

That's disappointing. To beat a dead horse: they really need to figure out a better way to handle saves/downloads.
