    Unhappy Anyone been in a situation where they had a 3DS stolen or lost?

    I'm devastated. My 3DS of 3 years was stolen from my bag last night while at a house show. I wouldn't have been so sad about it if it wasn't for the fact that most of my games were purchased digitally. Literally close to $500 worth of games. If anyone has been in a similar situation, was there anything you were able to do to get those games back from Nintendo? I still have my Friend Code written down on a note and I actually have a backed up SD card with the games I had on my 3DS. I just don't have another 3DS and probably won't be able to afford one for a little while. Any advice would help.

    First, I'm sorry man, must feel really horrible to lose the console AND all those games D:

    I don't know what Nintendo actually does in those situations, like if they can temporarily block the NNID account and stuff on the one that got stolen etc. I guess you could contact them with as much proof as possible like NNID stuff, maybe serial number if you wrote that down, 3 model and so on and see if they can do anything.

    And yeah some sorta proof it actually got stolen so they don't think you fake it.

    I won't be able to contact Nintendo until my friend returns from work and allows me to use his phone, but no, I don't have any proof at all other than I looked for it and could not find it anywhere. :/ And I looked throughout the house and didn't find it anywhere at all.

    That sucks man, but yeah as long as you remember the NNID maybe they can help you? And if you remember the password and stuff for it maybe they can help you change it..?

    You might wanna look for the original package and receipt in case Nintendo needs it to verify something.

    I lost my 3DS in America last year when I was on vacation. I just ended up buying a new one. Maybe you should try contacting Nintendo and ask them about your situation. Sorry for what happened to you

    This happened to my boyfriend's 3DS a few years ago. He lost it on his college campus. We did find out someone found it thanks to having each other's FCs (it showed up online a few hours later). However, when I tried to contact the person via Swapnote (back when it was still a thing), I never got a response back and they never showed up online again despite offering a reward. He had multiple digital games and funds.

    We contacted Nintendo and explained the situation so he was able to get his funds transferred from the eShop iirc. Despite having the serial number and all necessary information, the reps told us nothing could be done. It's kind of irritating there's no microchip in them in case of these situations happening but nope. >:/

    We even checked Craigslist for several weeks afterward to no avail. I would try your local Craigslist. If you ever took pictures of your 3DS (especially if it has anything unique like a sticker or shows the serial #), you might have some luck? you might be able to report that but I don't have much experience with this step unfortunately.

    I'm really sorry that happened to you. It's a horrible thing.

    Horrible to hear that it got stolen. Never happened to me before, I leave mine at home for the most part.

    I lost my 3ds way way WAY too many times. At least I feel your pain.
