    Guys,

    I have a 3DS with ambassador that i bought at day one, but i'm thinking of buying another 3DS and sell the one i have (Zelda version).

    Is it possible to pass the ambassador status to the new 3DS?

    Thanks all

    Yes, I have heard that Nintendo will lauch a program that will allow users to pass their data from a 3DS to a 3DS LL, but I think that you can already do that with two 3DS.

    3ds system transfer option should work

    system A(old system) ->system B(new system)

    when you do it
    system B should have everything that was on system A
    and
    system A is 100% formated

    It works. I had to replace my 3DS and I kept all of my ambassador games and the ambassador e-shop account.

    Nintendo has a nice graphic that describes what gets transferred.

    Does anybody know if this works across systems of different regions?

    Nintendo's site said you can only do it 3 times but they may have increased the number of times allowed since I read it. Might want to double check first.

    Just do a system transfer and all will be moved over. I transferred my ambassador status from my day one 3DS to a Zelda 3DS.

    So does this transfer also include everything you earn in Mii plaza? Streetpass puzzles etc?

    @Pong20302000 and @[member='syfyTy'], It's actually 7 times, but I think that person won't keep buying 3DS's at every redesign (which still makes 7 impossible). (Source: The 3DS Handhelds themselves.)
    @[member='Pleng'], No, it's all Region Locked. (Source: Own experience.)
    @[member='boombox'], Yes, unlike Nintendo mentions, literally everything will be transferred over.

    Wicked, thanks for the verification :D
    I'm very tempted to sell my Mario DSi XL in the near future and get a 3DS XL..

    Thanks. That totally sucks. I should have done my research and imported a US model to take with me. I'm not strong enough to not buy an XL, so this system is in effect bricked and unsellable where I am!!! :(

    With regards to the transfer limit (since it was brought up), if Nintendo replaces a unit that can't be repaired, does that transfer count towards the total limit?

    I guess Nintendo has way better environments for that, but I can't confirm this for 100%.
