A month or so ago, I decided to get a 2DS XL. My old 3DS XL wasn’t working very well & the new 2DS’s had come out over the summer. I looked into them and they had all the features of the 3DS minus the 3D technology. I almost never used the 3D as it hurt my eyes so it seemed like the way to go. I really like the 2DS XL a LOT; it works great! It takes some getting used to where the “power” & “home” buttons are and the stylus as well since it’s in the center instead of the right side (if I were left-handed I would like it more).
One of the big issues I had was when I tried transferring all my games between the devices. I had done the wireless transfer which took awhile to do so I left it alone & came back to find only some of my games were moved. I tried to do the computer transfer between the 2 SD cards but had the same result. Time to call customer service. The solution was so easy I felt dumb for calling.
First go to the eShop:
Apparently “Metroid” was new when I did this.
Anyway, once you’re in the eShop, go all the way to the left to “Settings/Other”:
In Settings you will see various options but the one you’re looking for is “Redownloadable Software”
Once you click on it, all of your games should be there. For example, “Legend of Zelda”. Click on the Redownload button:
You should see this screen letting you know you can download this title. So, download!
Ta-da! Now you have presents to open:
I hope this helps! I had started writing this post earlier today, before I found out Nintendo had released “Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp”. As you can see above, I am an Animal Crossing fan, but sadly I am unable to get the game (don’t have a compatible OS) 😢
