ACNL to ACNL: Welcome Amiibo

Hello, I just want to know if I can pass my ACNL data into ACNL: WA. I’ve been playing for a while the original one, but I didn’t know the WA version was better. I don’t want to start from 0 again, so please, help me at this, thank you!

And sorry is there any grammar error. I’m not a good english speaker

if you install the cia of the welcome amiibo update, your game will be updated but ur save file will still be there
