European Nintendo fans who buy a 3DS and a copy of Smash Bros. or Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire can get a free game.
Do you live in Europe? Have you been holding off getting a 3DS, but are getting increasingly tempted by the new Super Smash Bros. title? Well, this new offer from Nintendo Europe may just push you over the fence. If you buy a 3DS, 2DS or 3DS XL as well as a copy of Super Smash Bros. or Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, and register them with a club Nintendo account, you can get your choice of one of the following games, absolutely free. The games included in the promotion are:
- Kirby: Triple Deluxe
- Mario Golf: World Tour
- Mario Party: Island Tour
- Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
- Pokemon Art Academy
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
- Yoshi's New Island
As you can see, it's not the bargain basement stuff that Nintendo is offering up, but critically acclaimed hits like The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and brand-new releases like Pokemon Art Academy.
The only downside is that this offer unfortunately doesn't seem to extend to those dedicated fans who already own a 3DS, as your 3DS has to be registered between September 11, 2014 and January 12, 2015. Once you have registered both your system and the game, you'll have to head over the the Club Nintendo page and choose your free game by February 12, 2015.
We've reached out to Nintendo America to see if this promotion will also make it way stateside, but for now, you'll only be able to participate with systems purchased in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, South Africa and Russia.
