    Hello guys. I got a question about Nintendo network ID and games on my New3Ds XL.
    I have that console ( second hand ) with installed Mario Minis on it, but I want to delete the network ID and reset the system. After that I want to make a new Nintendo Network ID because I want to have my own ID.

    Will I be able to redownload Mario Minis on different Nintendo ID but on the same console? Are the games tied to the ID or the console.

    Thanks in advance.

    and you will loose thoose games and there is no way to transfer them to your new account.

    but you can be a filthy pirate and backup and install them again with hax

    Yep, any game bought (so non-preinstalled) is tied to the NNID if one is currently logged in.

    Luckily you may be able to hack your console to extract tickets.db and download the cia!

    It is updated to the last update so it can't happen.

    Well I will lose my games. Very good news :D

    what if you get a console with pre-installed games, link a NNID, and later delete the NNID, the pre-installed game gets tied to the account as well?

    but extracting the tickets is the closest thing to "legit"

    If you know the login details of the 2nd console, you may be able to email nintendo and ask them to move the licenses to the first one. It's definitely not a standard procedure (unlike a manual nnid transfer) and really depends on the good will of the employee!

    there is but you need hax for that...
    i think you can downgrade with a cubic ninja or OOT with the exploit installed on the game?

    No, the games and content are tied to your ID, so when you get a new ID you will lose the license. Just install arm9loaderhax to be a filthy pirate as pp said.

    Apparently yes for the Tomodachi Life special demo! I've even deleted my eshop account (after logging out of NNID) and it's still in the redownloadable software list!

    use decrypt9 to dump ticket.db, then use FunkyCIA

    you can still hack 10.7 so don't worry
