Nintendo’s New 3DS Transfer Process Is a Little Ridiculous

New Nintendo 3DS XL launches this Friday, February 13, and I'm sure many of you are planning on picking up the updated handheld at that time. However, release day may not be as enjoyable an occasionĀ as you're hoping.

Those of you who already have built quite a sizable digital catalog on your current 3DS will want to transfer over all those purchases to your shiny new device, but unfortunately it's a bit trickier than you might think.

Check out the video tutorial below, courtesy of Nintendo, for the full 15-step process.

Are you dreading the system transfer you'll have to perform later this week? If anything, this is a testament to Nintendo's need for a better account system.
