    Hi guys, I have a new Nintendo 3ds Mario land bundle that I'd like to sell. I want to first factory reset it to the way it was when I bought it. I'm not having a lot of luck finding a tutorial on this, and I'm concerned that if I format it, I'll lose the factory installed Mario land. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Thank you. Will that remove any connection to my eshop account and my CC info? And will that remove the factory installed game as well?

    The Mario 3D Land game should still stay in your console if it came preinstalled in the console, since it's not tied to your eShop account, but I'm not 100% sure.

    will this also de-connect the 3ds from my credit card info and eshop account?
