    Hi,

    I have an 3DS with ambassador program and all the free games. I was wondering. If I buy another 3DS, can I transfer those games on the local SD card to another 3DS? Or will they only work on my first 3DS? It is no problem if they get removed from the first 3DS. I want them on my new 3DS.

    Thank you in advance.

    The only way to play them on your new 3ds is to system transfer since the games are only playable on the system used to download them. So they won't work if you try to play them via the sd card.

    Shouldn't this be in the 3DS section?

    Why care about such trivial matter? It's still a type of DS by Nintendo anyway...

    If there wasn't a 3DS section then I wouldn't be saying that in the first place.

    It's not the end of the world here but something this obvious should be in the right section...
