    How do I go about doing this? I've done a decent amount of searching off-site, but the most I can find is formatting via tiny format, which has to be a super outdated method by this point.

    Both systems are up to date, with Luma and A9LH. In case you're wondering, I'll be selling the original 3ds to a friend, and I want him to have his own NNID. ^^;

    Is it really as simple as just formatting the old system?

    You could always call nintendo and have them remove the nnid from the o3ds. Ive done it several times.

    Just called them, I tried to be as casual as possible without trying to sound smart, 24-48 hours wait time now. Thanks!

    I wonder if by doing that, they remove the association completely allowing to region change the console and being actually able to enter eShop with a NNID
