    Ok, so I finally got a dual IPS n3DS bundled with Mario 3D Land.

    I want to ditch my old dual TN Animal Crossing 3DS with the new one.

    I don't have much data at all on my Animal Crossing 3DS. My saves are saved to the carts. But I have Zelda: Majora's Mask on it as well.

    I was going to do a system transfer, but I think that will get rid of the Mario 3D land bundled with the newer 3DS?

    Should I just wipe the Animal Crossing DS clean and just log into my newer 3DS with my Nintendo ID and redownload Majora's mask? Is that doable? Will doing that wipe Mario 3D Land?

    Doing a System Transfer to a system with preinstalled software will wipe the software on the target system. However, I think in the case of the "bundle" systems which come with a game installed out of the box, it's possible to re-download the game through the eShop somehow. Specifically, I think it gets added to your account. I'm not 100% sure about this, so I'd wait for confirmation before doing anything if I were you, but I don't think you'll lose Mario 3D Land permanently.

    The preinstalled game will be added to your account after the System Transfer, so you won"t have a problem with that.
