    2.1 Shopping Service

    2.1.1 Shop Account
    The Shopping Service may not be available in your country. Subject to the availability of the Shopping Service in your country, you can open a Shop Account on your Nintendo 3DS System. Only one Shop Account can be opened for each Nintendo 3DS System. A Shop Account is personal to you and is tied to your Nintendo 3DS System. Your Shop Account and any Shopping Service Products associated with your Shop Account may not be sold or otherwise transferred to another person or to another Nintendo 3DS System owned by you or by a third party. Notwithstanding the aforesaid, Nintendo may, in its sole discretion, allow you to transfer certain Shopping Service Products from your Nintendo 3DS System to another Nintendo 3DS System you own (see below Clause 2.8).
    You are responsible for monitoring your Shop Account and for setting up appropriate Parental Controls or other measures to limit the access to your Shop Account.
    2.1.2 Purchasing Shopping Service Products
    The Shopping Service allows you to use funds transferred to your Shop Account to purchase Shopping Service Products. Funds are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged for cash or credit. Funds can only be used to purchase Shopping Service Products via the Shopping Service. Nintendo may, in its sole discretion from time to time, restrict the maximum amount of funds that you can transfer to your Shop Account.
    Funds are for your own personal use and are tied to your Shop Account. Once funds are credited to your Shop Account, you may not withdraw or transfer them to another person or platform (e.g. to another Nintendo platform, such as the Wii console or the Nintendo DSi system) or use them to purchase content on any other Nintendo platform. In addition, you may not transfer funds of your Shop Account to any other Shop Account not owned by yourself. Notwithstanding the aforesaid, Nintendo may, in its sole discretion, allow you to transfer funds credited to a Shop Account on your Nintendo 3DS System to another Nintendo 3DS System you own (see below Clause 2.8).
    You are responsible for your use of the funds for your Shop Account, and for anyone else’s use of those funds.
    2.1.3 Transferring Funds to your Shop Account
    There are two ways to transfer funds to your Shop Account: By credit card or by purchasing a Funding Card at a retailer:
    • You can use your credit card to transfer funds for your Shop Account online via the Nintendo 3DS System. Funds transferred to your Shop Account by using a credit card will be immediately credited to your Shop Account.
    • You can also buy a Funding Card at a retailer. To transfer the funds stored on the Funding Card to your Shop Account you have to enter the number printed on the Funding Card when requested.
    You can check the funds credited to your Shop Account at any time in your account history. Funds are displayed in the currency corresponding to the country settings you have chosen for the Nintendo 3DS System. Please note that if you change your country settings to a country with a different currency the funds credited to your Shop Account with regard to the former country settings are blocked and you are not able to use any funds credited under the former country settings under the changed country settings. If you change your new country settings back to your former country settings, you will be able to use the funds.
    2.1.4 Credit Card Charges and Account History
    Each time you deposit funds into your Shop Account online with your credit card, you will receive a receipt confirming your transaction. This receipt will be posted in your account history. When you use the funds to purchase Shopping Service Products, the transaction will also be reflected in your account history. You may obtain your account history through your Shop Account.
    2.1.5 Downloading of Shopping Service Products from the Shopping Service
    Upon ordering a certain item of Shopping Service Products, the sums required to download that Shopping Service Products will be charged to your Shop Account. Once you have completed the order procedure for a downloadable Shopping Service Product, you cannot cancel that transaction and the Shopping Service Product is made available to you on your Nintendo 3DS System. If you do not have sufficient funds to complete a transaction, Nintendo will not accept any orders placed by you.
    By placing an order through the Shopping Service using your Shop Account or by allowing another person to place such order you (i) authorise Nintendo to deduct the price of any Shopping Service Product from your Shop Account and (ii) agree to these terms and conditions.
    The prices indicated for any Shopping Service Products available in the Shopping Service will be in the currency corresponding to the country settings you have chosen for the Nintendo 3DS System and shall include all applicable taxes.
    2.1.6 Termination of your Shop Account
    You may terminate your Shop Account by removing your Shop Account from the Nintendo 3DS System in the settings of the Shop Account. If you terminate your Shop Account you will automatically forfeit any rights to any unused funds credited to your Shop Accountand will not be entitled to a refund for any unused funds.
    In addition to our rights under Clause 1.11 of this Agreement, if there is any fraudulent or unlawful activity concerning the funds credited to your Shop Account or the use of the funds credited to your Shop Account, by any person, we may terminate, suspend or otherwise limit your access to the Nintendo 3DS Services, or any portion of the Nintendo 3DS Services, whereupon your right to use the Shopping Service, including your funds credited to your Shop Account, will immediately cease. In such a case you will not be entitled for a refund for any unused funds credited to your Shop Account.
    2.1.7 Changes to the Shopping Service
    Nintendo may modify or terminate the Shopping Service and/or cease to provide any or all of the Shopping Service Products offered on the Shopping Service. If we terminate the Shopping Service, we will provide you with reasonable advance notice.

    2.2 SpotPass

    SpotPass may send to your Nintendo 3DS System certain Network Content, such as
    (i) system updates;
    (ii) important messages from Nintendo in relation to the Nintendo 3DS System or your use of the Nintendo 3DS System such as updates on technical issues, etc. These messages are an integral part of the operation of the Nintendo 3DS System and the Nintendo 3DS Services;
    (iii) User-Generated Content Restriction System data or updates of User-Generated Content Restriction System data; and
    (iv) free applications, like free games, unless you opt-out of this content in the system settings.
    IMPORTANT: Please be aware that SpotPass uses an internet connection and automatically connects to the internet without notifying you of such connection. Such connection automatically takes place in Active Mode or in Sleep Mode. Any internet connection may incur costs, the exact amount of which depends on whether you have a flat rate with your internet access provider or on whether you get charged by your internet access provider per minute or megabyte. To avoid such costs you must disable all wireless communications by using the wireless switch of your Nintendo 3DS.
    You may also choose to receive commercial information via SpotPass, including marketing and advertising messages about Nintendo or third-party products and marketing and commercial applications, including demo versions of games, trailers, etc. You will only receive such commercial information if you opted-in to receive such information.

    2.3 StreetPass

    StreetPass allows your Nintendo 3DS System to arbitrarily select another Nintendo 3DS System or a Relay Point for StreetPass and to send to, receive from and exchange Network Content and User-Generated Content with another Nintendo 3DS System or Relay Point for StreetPass automatically without your operation and with no special notification to you. This information may among others include information attached to your Personal Mii.
    By using StreetPass, no connection fees or charges are incurred
    Communication via StreetPass may take place when your Nintendo 3DS System is in Active or Sleep Mode. In general, as StreetPass is switched off by default, StreetPass will only take place if you choose the respective settings for StreetPass.
    Please note that even if you choose not to opt in to StreetPass, your Nintendo 3DS System may transfer, transmit or in any other way forward Network Content or User-Generated Content received from other Nintendo 3DS Systems or from a Relay Point for StreetPass to any other Nintendo 3DS System of other users or to a Relay Point for StreetPass. In this case, only the Network Content and User-Generated Content of other users will be transferred via your Nintendo 3DS System; no data stored on your Nintendo 3DS System concerning you or any other player of your Nintendo 3DS System will be transmitted or sent.

    2.4 Friends Functionality

    In connection with the friend functionality, your Nintendo 3DS System provides for an “Address Book” and a “Friend Presence Feature”. The “Address Book” is a special application allowing you to enter friend codes or to send friend cards to establish a friendship with another user of a Nintendo 3DS System, to check whether your Friends are online and to interact with your Friends, including, without limitation, to exchange messages and other information with your Friends. The “Friend Presence Feature” allows all your Friends to see your online status, presence information and your play history data (such as information on when your are online, name and icon of favourite application, name and icon of application currently played, current level, current in-game location, playing time, recent logout time, time of updating comments shared with your Friends, etc.) as well as data related to your Personal Mii and you will be able to see the online status, presence information and the play history data of your Friends.
    If you do not want your Friends to see your online status, presence information and the play history, you can disable this feature.

    2.5 Applications Using Mii Characters

    You can send Mii characters to other Nintendo 3DS Systems and can receive Mii characters from other Nintendo 3DS Systems in various Mii-compatible games and applications. When you allow your Mii to “travel” to another Nintendo 3DS System, the Mii is sent to the user of the other Nintendo 3DS System. You may choose to attach certain information to the Mii you created, like name of the Mii, name of the Personal Mii, information related to the appearance of the Mii, such as body shape and colour, name of the game recently played, etc. Such information will also be visible for the other user receiving your Mii.
    In some applications, you can send Mii characters manually to another Nintendo 3DS System.
    In other applications, if you made the appropriate settings, the transmission and exchange of your Mii characters takes place automatically without any special notification to you via StreetPass.
    Similar to other User-Generated Content sent through any Nintendo 3DS Service (see Clause 1.4 above) please note that if your Mii “travels” to other users, such other users may reproduce, alter and or modify the Mii characters and may further share the Mii characters (including the information attached to it) with other users of any Nintendo 3DS System all over the world. When creating a Mii you will be able to choose whether to allow any recipient of your Mii to copy your Mii and whether to allow your Mii to “travel” via StreetPass.

    2.6 Correspondence Application

    Correspondence application of the Nintendo 3DS System allows you to send User-Generated Content, including handwritten messages, photos and audio data such as voice records, to your Friends and to receive User-Generated Content from your Friends. Please note that if you choose the appropriate settings, User-Generated Content you share with your Friends may be further shared with other users, including via StreetPass.

    2.7 Nintendo Zone

    The Nintendo 3DS System will show you a notification icon if you are close to a Nintendo Zone. You may choose to access Nintendo Zone where Nintendo and/or its selected partners may provide commercial or non-commercial information on your Nintendo 3DS System. Nintendo will not send you unsolicited commercial messages without your consent.

    2.8 System Transfer

    “System Transfer” is an application allowing you a limited right to transfer certain data and content from one Nintendo 3DS System to another through internet communication or Local Wireless communication.
    When using the System Transfer you are only allowed to transfer data between systems owned by yourself; you are not allowed to transfer data between a system owned by yourself and a system owned by a third party.
    Please note that you can only transfer data Nintendo has designated as transferable. As far as designated by Nintendo as transferable, you may transfer certain save data for built-in applications, photos and audio data, system settings data (such as the settings for your wireless internet communications, friend codes) and certain add-on data created by built-in application using Local Wireless.
    Notwithstanding Clause 2.1.1 above and as far as designated by Nintendo as transferable, Nintendo may allow you to transfer software you have downloaded from the Shopping Service on your Nintendo 3DS System to another Nintendo 3DS System you own.
    Notwithstanding Clause 2.1.2 above and as far as designated by Nintendo as transferable, Nintendo may, in its sole discretion, allow you to transfer funds credited to a Shop Account on your Nintendo 3DS System to another Nintendo 3DS System you own.

    Updating your Nintendo 3DS System

    Nintendo constantly aims to improve its services and the functionality of its consoles in order to provide customers with the best possible user experience. As a part of these efforts, we are making Nintendo 3DS system software updates available through the internet, and also by pre-installing them on selected Nintendo 3DS Game Cards.

    IMPORTANT: Your Nintendo 3DS system and compatible software are not designed to be used with any hardware or software which have been technically modified in an unauthorised way, or with other unauthorised devices. If a Nintendo 3DS system or software title is updated, any unauthorised technical modification of the hardware or software of the system, or the use of any unauthorised device in connection with your Nintendo 3DS system, may render your Nintendo 3DS system permanently unplayable. Any content deriving from the unauthorised technical modification of the hardware or software of your Nintendo 3DS system may be removed.

    System updates will be downloaded automatically when a wireless internet connection is available if you have a recent version of the Nintendo 3DS system software installed. When the download is complete, a message will appear on the HOME Menu detailing the steps to take in order to start installing the system update.

    System updates can also be performed manually when a wireless internet connection is available by opening System Settings from the HOME Menu, selecting Other Settings and then System Update.

    The Nintendo 3DS system was unable to connect to the wireless router or access point.

    • Don't know how to find your router's security key? Click Here

      Once you have entered the correct WEP or WPA key into your system, try the connection test again. If the problem persists, keep reading this page.


       Additional information:

      • If your Internet Service Provider has supplied a router to you many of these products have their security key and network details often found on a sticker located on the router.
      • Security keys are case-sensitive.
      • WEP keys contain numbers 0 through 9, and only letters A through F.

    Other suggestions:

    • Does your router support multiple encryption types? Some routers that support more than one type of wireless encryption will broadcast as using one type of encryption, but actually be set to use another. For example, if your router is set to WEP, it might be broadcasting that it's set to WPA.
    • Try changing the security type on your router. For example, if your router is set to WEP, try changing it to WPA.
    • Check for any firmware updates for your router available through the router manufacturer's website.
    • Change your router's channel setting to 1 or 11. By default, most routers broadcast on channel 6, which overlaps with other channels and may be weaker. For help doing this, click here and select your router brand and model (if available). The information you need is generally found in the "Broadcast Channel" area.

    Should the troubleshooting above not correct your issue please feel free to contact Nintendo Australia Customer Service 9:00 am - 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday, Australian Eastern Standard Time. Australian customers please call on 03 9730 9822, New Zealand customers please call 0800 743 056.

    The only access point within range of your Nintendo 3DS is not configured or is not compatible with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (such as those found in many Hotspots).

    Where are you trying to connect from?

    Connecting from a wireless home network:

    1. Please make sure that your router is not on our list of incompatible routers. If it is listed as "not compatible," then it appears your router will not connect to your Nintendo 3DS. Consult our "Choosing a Wireless Router" page for more information by clicking here.
    2. Ensure your router has the latest firmware installed. Visit your router manufacturer’s website and look for any updated firmware that may be available (these are typically found under “downloads” or by searching for your particular model number). Contact your router manufacturer for additional assistance.
    3. Make sure that your network’s name (SSID) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Nintendo 3DS.
      1. Log in to your router using the default IP (consult the router’s owner's manual for assistance).
      2. Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
      3. After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the Internet Settings of your Nintendo 3DS that the SSID is appearing exactly as listed in your router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.
    4. Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.
      1. Click here to go to our Wireless Router Configuration page.
      2. Use the drop-down box on the left to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
      3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
      4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing such things as the Transmission Rate.
    5. Your router may not be assigning an IP address to the Nintendo 3DS. Try manually assigning an IP address to your Nintendo 3DS.
      1. The first thing you'll need to do is find out what IP address your router is using. To do this:

    Using a Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector:

    Does the Blue Wi-Fi registration tool icon appear in the system tray of your PC (typically this is found in the bottom right-hand corner of your computer screen, near the clock)?

    1. Yes. If the connector has been inserted very recently, it may take several moments for it to establish a connection. Retry.
    2. No. Is the software installed? Is the USB connector inserted? Restart the PC, and if it still does not appear, we recommend uninstalling the software and installing the latest version. Click here to get the latest software for the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector.
    3. Yes, but it’s gray. Is the USB connector inserted? Right-click the registration tool icon and choose to run the registration tool. If it does not respond, restart the PC. If it still does not respond, we recommend uninstalling the software and installing the latest version. Click here to get the latest software for the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector.

    Connecting from a Hotspot

    • Ensure the Hotspot location does not require an internet browser to setup an account, accept a use agreement, or enter a password before accessing their Wi-Fi service. If the location requires any of these items, you will not be able to connect to the internet with your Nintendo 3DS system.
    • Make sure that the Nintendo 3DS system is within 10 meters of the wireless access point and facing in its general direction. Signal strength can vary, depending on where the access point's signal is coming from. (Please do not sit or stand in places that will interfere with the location's customers or staff.)
    • Orient the Nintendo 3DS so that your body or other objects (such as walls, plants, furniture, and other people) are not blocking the signal. Also, make sure there is no interference from wireless phones (mobile phones are okay).
    • If the connection continues to fail, this Hotspot may have their router set up in a manner that is not compatible with the system. We recommend trying a different location.
