Topic: redownloading games on a new 3DS

Posts 1 to 3 of 3


My 3DS stopped working and I want to buy a new one. Will I be able to redownload all of my games which I bought on my old 3DS if I use the same nintendo ID?



Not unless you can use the system transfer. If you can't do that you can try calling Nintendo support and they should be able to help you out

Want: Harvest Moon: One World, Story of Seasons: Pioneering Town, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury

Finished the Alola Dex.
Now playing New Horizons, Wrath of White Witch and Sword


You'll have to call Nintendo and have them transfer your downloads to your new 3DS. I just had to do this and it took less than 24 hours.

If your system still worked then you could do a wireless transfer which sends all of the data over and transfers the linked 3DS to the new one.

I love traveling light through Europe and run a blog about it at
Hardware: Wii U, New 3DS, Super Famicom & Super GameBoy, Game Boy Pocket
