Default 3DS Failing


My Nintendo 3DS XL is failing since i droped it.

I fear that it will stop working anytime.

The problem is, i have Pokemon Ruby and Mario Kart on the console ( downloaded ). And i dont have money right now to make a system transfer.

Theres a way to "remove" and keep my account outside the 3Ds, so when i buy a new 3Ds i can recover the data?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry but it's not possible This is probably my biggest issue with the 3ds... the way Nintendo handled digital games. You'll have to either stop playing the 3ds until you can afford a new one to transfer it too, or play and hope it doesn't break entirely. There's been a few cases where people have contacted Nintendo, and got their games back, but I wouldn't count on it.
