Nintendo Australia has revealed that DSiWare games cannot be transferred over to a new DSi.

Apparently, all games downloaded are locked to the particular system each was purchased for.

However, should you break your lovely DSi, Nintendo has a solution. Send in your broken handheld along with your new one and the company will transfer the data for you.

Should you decide to get a new one for whatever reason – you pawned the last one, a bear ate it, or you just want a shiny pink one with glitter – you are out of luck.
