Contrary to internet rumblings, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D soundtrack offer – in which those that purchase and register their copy of the Nintendo 3DS remake are entitled to claim a free 50-track CD – is still available across Europe.
Club Nintendo users who eagerly rushed to register their copies over the weekend had fallen foul of an error when registering their address details to claim the reward, that stated “An error occurred when your data were being validated. Please try again later.”
Nintendo have now clarified that, as the website already states, all those that register the game until June 30th will receive the soundtrack CD – even those that have encountered such issues when trying to do so.
Nintendo of Europe’s statement is as follows:
We would like to update our Club Nintendo members who have attempted to register their The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D title with Club Nintendo over the weekend in order to take part in the bonus soundtrack CD promotion.
Unfortunately, we encountered a technical issue with our Club Nintendo website and this resulted in an error for some customers when trying to claim the promotional soundtrack CD from Friday afternoon until today, Monday, June 20th. This issue is now solved, but we would like to extend our sincere apologies to all Club Nintendo members who encountered this problem.
Our The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D CD Soundtrack promotion continues to run until June 30th, 2011. All European Club Nintendo members may register for and receive a bonus soundtrack CD until that date. We will be in contact soon with Club Nintendo members who registered their software, but were not able to enter their details for the soundtrack CD, with information on how to proceed in order to receive the CD.
