Beginning and continuing throughout the month of March (1st-31st), Nintendo will be offering people a chance to get a free downloadable copy of either Pokemon X or Pokemon Y.
If you purchased either a 2DS or a 3DS and one of the following games (Yoshi’s New Island, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins, Super Mario 3D Land, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Mario Kart 7, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf) and haven’t yet registered them on Club Nintendo, do so anytime on March 1st – 31st and receive a downloadable code for either Pokemon game.
This of course means if you’ve already registered your 2DS/3DS you’re sort of out of luck as this is a promotion for new buyers. Same applies to the games listed above. This is a bit of a shame as it would have been a really easy way to pick up the version of Pokemon you might have been missing. Still, both games are fantastic and if you’ve been meaning to pick up a 3DS, this is a perfect opportunity to get one of its best games for free.
