    Hi guys,

    I'm gonna sell my 3ds and want to backup my data. Like miis, pictures, save games, bought eshop games and my streetpass progress.

    Thanks for advice.
    Kind regards.

    If you want to back that up, you need another 3DS, there is no other way unfortunately! You can only transfer it to another 3DS, but I guess you want to sell your 3DS and later buy a New 3DS or something, but that is not possible unfortunately.

    Top bad, That is exactly what I intended to do ^^.

    Aren't any files saved in my Nintendo network account?

    Thanks :)

    As far as I know, only one Mii (your personal mii) is saved on your nintendo network account, you can try contacting Nintendo and asking if doing a system format can safely unlink your eshop account from your 3DS and then be reused with a new console later to reclaim your eShop purchases.

    Seems that the eShop is indeed linked to your console, the NNID seems to be used only to link the eShop accounts between a WiiU and a 3DS system. If you system format your console you can only link again with the same system.

    Lol wtf.

    I already read something like that but every console has to have a backing up function. Screw that. Until new 3ds release I'm gonna have forgotten everything about my data on my 3ds I'm selling today.

    Thanks dude.
    Kind regards
