Yep. Can't go back to older version 9f the hardware. And you have to wait 7 days between system transfers.

The reason is because some software (like the snes vc games or xenoblade) only work on the "new" models. So if someone bought a game like xenoblade digitally, then transferred back to an older model, well you can bet some people would complain that the games they bought no longer work. So the whole thing is to prevent that from happening. It may sound stupid, but I can definitely see that happening a lot.

However, I also believe they can only do a system tranfer if you have nothing N3DS-exclusive on your account, or are OK with losing it. A regular 3DS can't save that information.

So... is there a consensus on this? If ninty won't allow the latter, then that's a dick move on their part since there's no discernible reason to disallow it.

I think you can contact them and have them do it. But you just can't transfer from new-old yourself.

From what I can remember, you can do a system transfer to an older system, just not manually. You need to contact Nintendo, and they'll send over your account. The N3DS's system transfer is simply incompatible with the regular 3DS's due to some differences in the process thanks to N3DS-exclusive stuff, even if you have none of that on your system.

That isn't a system transfer, it is an NNID unlink. System transfer migrates your save data and console settings, and NNID unlink makes you lose that.

The only way to do a transfer in that direction and keep your data is with a modified system.

Never done it myself, but I think I recall reading this as well that if you call them they can at least transfer some parts back.

Well in case anyone was wondering. GameStop couldn't do a system transfer so my only solution was to call Nintendo and have them unlink the Nintendo I'd. ( Which was easier then I thought. Lady was very nice ) I just lost all my saves for digital games but that's okay.

And I actually made out better doing this..I gave them my black n3ds and they gave me a Hyrule gold. And I'm a huggggge Zelda fan so I'm kinda glad the black one was broke hehehe
