So, a while back, i broke the touch screen on my 3ds. i recently got a download code for Super Mario Bros. Deluxe but I cant use it because the touch screen is broken. How can I use the download code and will Nintendo allow me to send in a 3ds for repairs without a warranty? Thanks for any help you can provide

Call them and find out. Most likely yes, but it'll cost you a couple hundred I'm guessing.

With a broken touch screen though idk if you can even do a system transfer.

I have a nerf case on my 3ds after I went through something similar.

Ah. I've been looking at some youtube videos and I think that I may be able to buy a screen repair kit for the touch screen and fix it myself. But yeah, if it turns out well, I will also have to invest in a case as well.

Be careful buddy, I know nothing about 3DS screens but I know a lot of kits like that don't work. For example, there are kits claiming to be able to replace the iPhone 6S screen for $25 but that is simply impossible. Some screens are simple enough like the iPhone 3.

Beware of fake knockoff "fix it yourself" kits from China sold on ebay and amazon marketplace type sites.

If you do opt for a fix it yourself option, I do recommend you start looking into serial numbers on the parts that the official manufacturer uses to ensure compatibility.

Don't be penny-wise, pound-foolish. Sometimes it pays for services like these.

This. OEM replacements are more expensive but worth it. When I shattered the digitizer and the AMOLED panel in my Galaxy S4 I bought an OEM replacement from a seller on Amazon for $85 instead of the cheaper, non-OEM replacement that was $60. The OEM replacement works great, but I bought a non-OEM screen to fix my old iPhone 4 like almost two years ago and it came in both shattered and for the ATT iPhone 4, not the Verizon iPhone 4 even though it was labeled as a Verizon model.
