Recently, I got my Limited edition legend of Zelda 3DS stolen with 9 games, and I know that there is a slim chance that I'll get it back, but I'm trying anyway.
So far, according to my friend's 3DS, she can see that I'm 'online' right now. She tried to send them a message through Nintendo Letterbox, but to no avail. The only other way i can think of contacting them is through my pokemon Y game, but yet again, those chances are very slim.
Does anyone have any ideas? Or had any problems similar to mine? I would love to hear from you

The best thing you can do is contact your local police.

The problem is, I was in Portugal at the time, and I live in the UK; there isn't much British police can do.

Well then I would contact the Portugal police and file a report by doing that you can contact Nintendo and then they can take if from there. If you are unwilling to do that well then the only other thing I can suggestion is biting the bullet and rebuying the system and games. If you have tried to make contact with them and they are ignoring you well then the chances of them giving it back without getting the law involved is pretty slim.

don't let the police put "DS" or "Game Boy" in the documents I heard Nintendo can't help transferring your account if it's not officially stated that a "3DS" was stolen.

That was what I planned to do at the airport, when I noticed it was gone. Except that they didn't speak English.

Can anyone think of another way I could contact them? I have a feeling that this person isn't actually the theif, and if could just explain the situation, they might just accept me refunding them

I am afraid not. The only way you can contact them is maybe through swap note or whatever its called maybe as you said have a friend of yours contact them through a game with a FC. Other then that I am afraid you are out of luck unless you get the police involved. Even if you don't get your system back if you file a police report you can send a copy to Nintendo and they can help you recover all your data like games and such and then you can put it on a new system.

Did you have a Nintendo Network ID on that system? If so maybe you could try to contact him that person through that.
If not i'd contact Nintendo. They should be able to tell you if they can do anything for you and what they'd need to do so.

I'd like to know how the system was stolen or lost? Was it in the plane, bus or taxi maybe?

Someone just today stole my charging 3DS that had Pokemon X in it along with my dear Charizard :'(
By what I'm going through, I really hope you get it back.
