If you’re yet to delve into the realms of Nintendo’s handheld offerings, or looking to upgrade, then let the Nintendo 3DS Winter 2014 Bonus Game Promotion sway you toward a purchase.

Those in Europe that register a Nintendo 2DS, Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL in Club Nintendo between 11th September 2014 – 12th January 2015, and then a copy of either Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire between 3rd October – 12th January 2015, will be able to lay claim to download one the games below for free.

If your game purchase of choice is a retail copy, then you will be required to complete a software registration survey.

* Kirby: Triple Deluxe
* Mario Golf: World Tour
* Mario Party: Island Tour
* Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
* Pokémon Art Academy
* The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
* Yoshi’s New Island

You will need to request the download code by 12th February 2015, with all codes needed to be redeemed by 12th March 2015 after which they will expire. If you are below the age rating of your chosen game, you won’t be able to request a code for it.

    So, how do I request a download code? I already registered my game and system.

    I’ve done everything I can to register and I am still awaiting my free code. I’ve registered the super smash bros 3ds game. Its not giving me the option to select the game I’d like. Also on the Nintendo website the promotional winter bonus game banner is not working? Can you give me any advise, I registered both console and game about 10 days ago.

      Hi Emilie! If you have registered a 2DS, 3DS or 3DS XL through Club Nintendo, as well as Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, then you should be able to claim a code. Does a banner appear when you log in to Club Nintendo? I’d recommend contacting Nintendo UK directly if it’s still unsuccessful:

    Yeah i have registered both. When i click on the banner it brings up an error message saying this page cannot be found, this is the website link it is telling me to click on I have sent them a number of emails now but no response. How can i tell when my 3ds xl has registered? It is saying it is linked through the console in the eshop in the settings/ other section.

      Hi Emilie! If you log in to Club Nintendo on, hover over ‘Club Nintendo’ and select ‘My Account.’ Within here there’s a section where you can ‘See All My Registered Games & Systems.’ It’d be worth checking there to see precisely when it was registered.

    Hi! I was wondering whether anyone knows if you can redeem more than one game. For example, i have the super smash bros 3ds and i’ve downloaded the monster hunter but i’m getting Pokemon and i’d like to download one of the mario games in this offer, would this work?

      Hi Alex! Unfortunately the terms and conditions state that: “Each member of Club Nintendo can participate in this promotion only once.” Therefore you can only claim one free digital code.
