On my 3DS-XL in Animal Crossing: New Leaf would say new save file I would appreciate anyone who can figure out if you can have a new save file and it will erase the other one. About a month ago I lost my other save file by saying I wanted to recreate the town on accident.
If you created a new save file then the old one is gone. You can not recover it or restore it. Not even from a back up. If you did manage to have the old file backed up, the file will be considered invalid and the system will want to delete it and create a new game if you try to access the old file.
