Hello,

I recently came up with the idea to move to France when I graduate college or something. However, I'd be moving from a "U" territory to an "E" territory. Here's some info:

- I already have a 3DS with a metric boatload of saves.
- I have an NNID also used for my Wii U.
- I have a Nintendo account linked thereto.
+ My purchases are:
++ Mario & Donkey Kong: Minis on the Run (CTR)
++ Pokémon Red (CTR, 1991)
++ Absolute Reversi (CTR, 2009)
++ Snipperclips (HAC)

Should I replace my 3DS and games with "E" ones? I would very much like to IF I can do it without losing anything I can't easily get back.

Also, is this a clone of https://gbatemp.net/questions/change-region-if-moving.4818/?

Your devices may not stand the test of time if you plan to go about graduating from college the "normie" way (roughly a decade from now if you're in the seventh grade and matriculate to graduate high school around 2025, then enter and graduate a four-year college, with no breaks in-between, leaves you at 2029-ish), so.....Either way, the biggest issue you may cross, would be the method you use to charge your devices. Europe (and pretty much every country on Earth) uses a different plug/adapter, so you might want to look into getting a really good power inverter.

1. Graduate High School.
2. Save money for a plane ticket to see if you even like being in another country.
3. Check how you'll cope with different voltages (inverter, solar power bank, regular power bank, etc,.)
4. Get a crystal ball and some classes in reading fortunes.

Super TL....
No. Keep your games, you're losing nothing of value, besides your time.

And, hey, try not to make duplicate posts....there's a reason no one else answered you.

H1B1, the posts were made 2 minutes apart, probably an accidental duplicate.

To answer your question.. I would just use the stuff you already have. There's nothing stopping you from using your U content on your U device when you are in an E territory.
Besides, when would all this happen? What are the odds that you'd buy new stuff for those consoles, to make it worth replacing with E versions? I mean, one option would be to buy a cheap second hand E console while keeping the old stuff you own.

@Issac really? Could have sworn one was created Friday (Friday at 7:13 PM) and one was created Saturday (Saturday at 12:11 AM)? Unless you had a moment and you're referring to Quantumcats' blog, as those were created within minutes of posting.
