If you live in the EU and are considering buying a Nintendo 3DS or 3DS XL, you might want to hold off for a week. Nintendo is offering a promotion where you can download a free copy of Super Mario 3D Land if you register a Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL system on Club Nintendo along with one of 15 eligible games.

The promotion runs between November 27 at 3:01 PM and January 13 at 10:59 PM, all UK dates and times. You could, of course, buy the system earlier, but you'll want to wait to register.

The list of eligible games are:

The Nintendo UK site says that after registering your system and game, "log in to Club Nintendo 24 hours later and check the promotional banners for your free download code." The deadline for claiming the download code is 22:59 on February 13th 2014, and you'll need to redeem the code in the Nintendo store by March 13, 2014 at 10:59.

I registered both my 3DS XL and Pokemon X but got no download code… Is there a way to recheck what happened?

This is bullshit, I registered my newly bought 3DS XL and Pokemon X just 3 days ago, so it seems I'm not eligible as this promotion states that I'd have to have registered them yesterday. Just bullshit.

I never registered for Nintendo club; does that mean I can get one free too?

<< LINK REMOVED >> you can register an account at any time. if your 3DS code is still valid (they do expire at some point) then you should be able to redeem this offer.

does anyone knows what register at club nintendo means? i mean is there anything else you have to pay for or is it just the registration of the 3ds + game and you'll get the free mario 3d land and nothing else happens?

<< LINK REMOVED >>Its a free service Nintendo offers. You just make an account and register the product using a code you get with it. you have to do a quick survey with each product you register and then you get points upon completion. you can redeem the points for rewards if you want to but you can just make an account, register the 3DS and get the free games without having to do anything else. Just make sure you register the 3DS after the starting date of the offer, November 27 at 3:01 PM.

They really don't. This is the first time i've seen Nintendo do something beneficial for the EU.

@<< LINK REMOVED >> - Really....

Xenoblade, Disaster Report, Another Code R, The Last Story, Pandora's Tower way before the US (if at all in some cases). And even more released on other systems that were not released in the US.

And have you SEEN Club Nintendo UK out of curiousity? Yeah way better than the NOA version. And now free games, so excuse me if I call shenanigans on your comment and call it like it is, the EU gets treated way better than the US nowadays from Nintendo.

And there are examples of Nintendo treating the EU as second-rate compared to the US: Many 3DS titles have had huge delays when coming to EU, such as Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Persona, and then some of these games came slightly censored.

Ok, instead of arguing who has it the worst, let's agree Nintendo's dedication to anywhere outside of Japan is inconsistent, at best.

Um, this is amazing. Why don't they do something like this here? (Only give away Luigi's Mansion or something.)

Nintendo UK has the best website, it even has an online shop.

The Australia Nintendo website is terrible!

Same with Club Nintendo! We NEVER get anything good to buy with Club points.

To participate in the promotion, you have to be a resident of the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Austria, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, South Africa, __Australia__, or Russia.

(assuming that they sell the "european 3DS" over there.)

Glad the UK is getting some love from Nintendo considering they've been screwed over a lot during the SNES/N64 era

I wish Super Mario RPG had been released here when I had a SNES, the UK missed out then.
