    Hi everyone,

    I was wanting to pull my Animal Crossing save file off of my Japanese 3DS to edit the save file. Can it be done? It was downloaded from the eShop.

    I also have a retail version of Animal Crossing for my US 3DS and would like to edit the save file. Is there a way?

    I know at one point there was a way to use the browser exploit but my menu version won't let me.

    use SVDT homebrew to get the save file from the eshop version. Then you should be able to transfer the JPN save to your US cart using SVDT as well
    You can also transfer the save file to your computer to edit it with ACNL Editor for PC: http://usuaris.tinet.cat/mark/acnl_editor/

    I've had no problem importing my save of Hyrule Warriors Legends JPN to my US cart and don't think you should see any problems with other games but I may be wrong. Just make a backup and then try it. The ACNL save editor for PC is really handy and has made it easy to customize my and my sister's ACNL saves with tools like 999999999 bells, unlocking all projects, getting any item, and deweeding and reseeding your town's grass.

    What are your firmware versions? Have you tried the browser bypass?

    You need either Cubic Ninja or Ocarina of Time + Powersaves.

    I knew when I got my 3DSs they weren't region free. I just hate having to buy the two games.

    Just downgrade one of your 3ds then. That way, if one bricks, you still have something to fall back on.

    How do I downgrade? How dangerous is it? Have you done it?

    Yeah I've downgraded. Nowadays, downgrading has really improved compared to when I did it. The downgraders imo, have gotten more reliable and downgrade titles in an order where even if it errors out halfway, it may still be salvaged. Of course, bricks are still possible, but while I don't know the stats on this, human error may be more of the reason for bricks now.

    Yeah I'm sorry. Hopefully in the future there'll be newer methods, but this is it for now.
