    I've been collecting some junked 3DS/2DS consoles and over time I discovered that some of them have the pre-installed games and no NNID on them. I was wondering what's the process in getting the pre-installed games from the 3DS/2DS to my 3DS XL which also happens to have a NNID on it without messing it up?

    You'll have to system transfer your main system to the systems with preinstalled games. It will then merge the console together and the preinstalled game will then be attached to your NNID, and continue to do that to each system until you make it back to your main system (which can take a few weeks as the system transfer is once per 7 days)

    As long as the systems have no NNID you should be good to go. You also can't go from New 3DS to older systems so I hope they're all the same system hardware

    @anonynom is completley correct, yes. but if you have a n3ds, youll have to call nintendo to transfer it over. note that they deny anyone with an exploitable dsiware game though.

    but this is only true if you feel like keeping those systems legit ;)
