I'll sell my New 3DS and I don't have any other 3DS to do system transfer, so unfortunally I can't keep my NNID to use with other 3DS, without system transfer.

My question is: Is possible to delete my NNID in a fw 9.1.0?
I don't want update to do it.

Thanks

Format the 3ds instead. It will logout your NNID without deleting it. Although it will wipe all games and saves on your 3ds.

If you want to actually delete your account, you do so from settings/NNID (or eshop/options/delete account, if you're using the still superior NNID-less system).

Formatting your console is the only way to a (half-assed) logout, and a completely separate thing.

If you want to reuse your NNID in another console, don't delete it, but note down the serial of the old one, username/email/birthday/country, last purchases (preferably with dates), shirt color of your Mii... (in order of importance, the more you know the better) and email (EU)/call (NA) Nintendo with these infos!

Thanks for the info. I've formated my N3DS before sell and keep all that usefull info. So, in the future I believe I can use the NNID in other console.
