Been debating whether or not you should upgrade to a Nintendo 3DS XL? Maybe you’ve been waiting for a good bundle before you dove in. Either way, now’s a great time to buy Nintendo’s latest handheld, as a new promotion will set you up with a free game after registering your purchase with Club Nintendo.
Here’s the deal – You go buy a new 3DS XL and either “Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon” or “Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity” and register them through your Club Nintendo account. Once that’s done, Nintendo will set you up with a code to download one of the following five games from the eShop for free: “Super Mario 3D Land,” “Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask,” “Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!,” “Star Fox 64 3D” or “Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive!”
Obviously, it’s not the killer deal of the century, but if you had planned on buying a 3DS XL and some new games anyway, this is definitely the way to go. Just keep in mind that you have to be a Club Nintendo member if you want to take advantage of the promotion. You can head over here for all of the specifics.
