If you’re familiar with Nintendo 3DS news, you may know that Nintendo likes to hold certain events and promotions to reward their customers. For example the “So Many Games” promotion, back in april. That event rewarded 3DS owners for registering certain games with club Nintendo, and gave them a free game to download for their trouble. Unfortunately Australia missed out on this and a few other events in the past.
Now Nintendo has announced their next event that Australians can be a part of! The “Great Games Promotion” kicks off June 20th, and it’s quite simple. If you buy a new Nintendo 3DS (This does not include 3DS XL) by July 31st 2013. Follow a few simple steps, and you will be rewarded with a free game download from the eShop!
The List of games you can download is
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Luigi’s Mansion 2
Nintendogs + Cats: Toy Poodle & New Friends
New Super Mario Bros 2
Super Mario 3D Land
Mario Kart 7
Step 1: Purchase a Nintendo 3DS console between 20th of June 2013 and the 31st of July 2013 from a participating retailer in Australia or New Zealand.
Step 2: Use the Club Nintendo registration card provided with your new Nintendo 3DS system to register it at club.nintendo.com.au and complete the registration survey.
Step 3: Check that the email address linked to your Club Nintendo account is correct, then follow the on-screen prompts to choose one of the six free games available and upload a scan or photograph of your genuine purchase receipt before the 30th of September 2013.
Step 4: Once Nintendo has validated your purchase you will receive your unique download code by email. Additionally, your download code will also appear on your Club Nintendo account.
Step 5: Redeem your code by visiting Nintedo eShop. Go to Nintedo eShop through your Nintendo 3DS system. Scroll to the far left in the main page of Nintendo eShop and select ‘Settings/Other’, then tap ‘Redeem Download Code’ and enter your code. Then you can download your free game and enjoy it on your new Nintendo 3DS.
If you haven’t gotten a 3DS at this point, it would be a great idea to get one during the promotion. The 3DS has a great libary of games right now and a whole bunch of new titles on the way. A new 3DS retails at $248 AUD and getting a free game for 20 minutes of your time doesn’t sound too bad to me. So investing in a 3DS right now is a great idea.
However you should be aware, that once again. If you buy a 3DS XL you cannot participate in this Promotion, this is strictly for the standard 3DS system.
The Promotion ends on September 30th 2013, but you must buy a 3DS system before July 31st and is avalible for both Australian and New Zealand . Happy hunting everyone!
