  1. Wait, I bought my 3DS in the US but I’m on vacation overseas…. won’t be back before E3. Can I still get the free download?

    • I’m not sure – will have to check with Nintendo tomorrow!

      I imagine that despite where you are using a Wi-Fi Connection, the eShop that you access will be dependent on the region of your Nintendo 3DS. In that case, I’m sure that you would be fine to claim the free copy of Excitebike. You’ve got until July 7th to download it anyway! 🙂
