Nintendo’s latest iteration of its popular handheld system, the New Nintendo 3DS, is just a few days away from release, and for those worrying about how to transfer over their save data from an older 3DS model, fear not – a new video from Nintendo shows exactly how to do that.

Published through Nintendo’s official YouTube channel, a new video from the company shows the process for how to transfer over the content of your old Nintendo 3DS to the New Nintendo 3DS XL – in a nutshell, you’ll need the two systems, a Size 0 Phillips-head Screwdriver, a computer, and a card-reader/adapter of some kind that can accept SD and MicroSD memory cards.

The New Nintendo 3DS XL releases on February 13th, 2015 – in the meantime, you can check out the full video from Nintendo below for a look at transferring between systems:
