I managed to snag me a New 3DS XL Galaxy model with dual IPS screens from a screen swapper on Ebay for just under $200! I am drooling in anticipation of getting it in my hands and yet totally fear the system transfer process from my current Red N3DS XL to the Galaxy. I’ve done several system transfers between multiple DS units during my “seeking the dual IPS unicorn phase” so I shouldn’t be this scared…but I have so many digital games on it now and progressions in them I truly don’t want messed up (looking mostly at you Monster Hunter: Stories & Pocket Card Jockey). Mah saves!
Also, I have the golden clear Pikachu hard case for it, so it will end up looking like this…
I’m still unable to get the yellow edition Pikachu N3DS XL with Dual IPS screen replacements. Those always seem to be around $300-400. Yeowza.
My only qualm is I need to know if I can system transfer back to the Red N3DS XL unit I have in case of trouble with the Galaxy. I do not know if this is possible and I want my red unit as a dual IPS back-up. The N3DS units nearing the end of their lives, I want to be able to have a solid replacement just in case. Personally, I love the 3DS far better than the Switch.
