What to Do:
If you haven't already, set up an Internet connection on the system: How to
Make sure your system has the latest system update: How to
From the HOME Menu, select the Nintendo eShop icon.
Select "Settings / Other," then select "Redeem Download Code."
Tap the box that says, "Enter a download code."
Use the touchscreen to enter the download code from your Humble Bundle download page and tap "OK."
If a message appears that says that the code has already been used, it may have already been downloaded to the system. Games that have already been downloaded to your system can be re-downloaded from the "Previously Downloaded Titles" area. How to
Tap "OK" again.
Select "Download Later" or "Download Now."
Items downloaded now will begin immediately.
Items downloaded later will begin when the system enters sleep mode.
Alternative Method (via the web):
If you haven't already, set up an Internet connection on the system. How to
Make sure your system has the latest system update. How to
Go to the Nintendo Network Download Code Redeem page Here and Sign In with the Nintendo Network ID associated with your 3DS.
Copy and paste your game key from the download page
into the redemption field on the Download Code page and click Next.
Verify your game is being sent to the correct device and click Redeem.
Check to make sure your 3DS is powered on and connected to the internet, then put it in Sleep Mode by closing the lid. Your game will begin downloading shortly.
Make sure you are connected to the internet on your DS. If should have an indicator at the top of the screen (it looks like an antenna), it shows your signal strength. If you have no signal or are not connected to your wifi, you will not be able to get to the eshop.
I know some of the older DS units can not connect to routers with WPA encryption.
Make sure your DS has the latest updates. Sometimes nintendo changes things and if you do not have the latest update you can not connect.
eShop is not pre-packaged on many of the older 3DS handhelds and you're
going to need to update your system in order to gain access to it.
1. Make sure you're connected to the internet and go into System Settings. 2. Go to "Other Settings" 3. Select "System Update".
After completing the system update, Nintendo eShop should appear on your main menu. If you don't have an internet connection, however, this is not going to work and you will need to connect to a wireless network.
