Deleting local user data on Ninty 3DS...WTF!!

15 February 2015 - 09:02 PM

So, I decided to sell my 3DS. Of course I wanted to reformat the system to delete my user data, so the new user couldn't get to the E-Shop to charge shit, etc.

I navigated to system settings->other settings->Format System Memory. Fairly simple stuff, or so I thought.

Long story, but I don't have wi-fi at the moment; <rant> MOTHERFUCKING THING APPEARS TO REQUIRE INTERNET TO DELETE LOCAL USER DATA.

Please tell me I am missing something; I am apparently not able to proceed with a LOCAL wipe, without connecting to the internet. We're talking Nintendo here...the last kid picked for net connectivity...YET I CAN'T DELETE LOCAL USER DATA WITHOUT AN INTERNET CONNECTION.

Am I going crazy, and am missing an obvious setting? Help.
