Are you a Nintendo fan living in the UK or Europe? Want to try out the Legend of Zelda Tri Force Heroes before its official release, yet weren’t lucky enough to have gotten a code from Nintendo themselves?
Well if so, we at Gaming Reinvented may have just the thing! Basically, Nintendo sent us three demo codes for the game. One for us to use, and two for various other people who might want to play the game. And so given that we don’t really know a lot of Nintendo fans in the real world (the company isn’t hugely popular in this region, and it’s even less so around this area of the UK), we thought we’d give them out.
No, you are not dreaming. Nintendo of America actually seems to be holding a promotion where you can get Pokemon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire for absolutely free. The catch?
You need to bring a copy of the original Pokemon Ruby or Pokemon Sapphire with you to the Nintendo World Store on the 23rd of November 2014. Here’s the tweet confirming the deal is genuine:
So yeah. Got a copy of Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire from the olden days? Take it to the World Store and get a free upgrade to the remake version! Pretty cool deal, isn’t it?
So if you want a real life car for Mario and friends to drive in Mario Kart 8… well, you’ll soon get your chance. The special Mercedes style kart is being released over here in Summer this year, and will likely be free like it is in Japan.
Head inside if you want to see Nintendo’s Twitter posts about it…
Club Nintendo UK’s generosity will never cease; in addition to the ‘So Many Games!’ promotion, which enables owners of three of a selection of recent games to download a fourth for absolutely free, they have also unveiled a ‘Gift and Hunt Together’ promotion for Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate on 3DS.
The deal is as follows; if you own a copy of the game, register it on Club Nintendo by the 30th of June (if you have the downloadable version it should already have been registered) and upon this date you will receive a free download code to give to a friend. Your friend will have needed to register their 3DS system before this date, and if they enter said code into the eShop before the 5th of August, they will be gifted with a full copy of the game. A little complicated, but nonetheless a great incentive to promote the franchise’s multiplayer facet, which is truly where the game shines. Plus, who can turn down a free game?

Well, here’s a deal Nintendo would be pretty mad to miss. Apparently, some fans of Earthbound are offering Nintendo their full translation of Mother 3 for absolutely nothing just to see it get rereleased in the US and Europe. Here’s what Earthbound fan Clyde Mandelin said to Nintendo in his blog about the deal:
I realize that localizing a game this size can cost a lot, so if it’ll help in even the slightest, I’ll gladly offer to let Nintendo use my text translation files for any use at all, completely for free. I’ll even edit the files to fit whatever new standards are necessary (content, formatting, memory size, etc.), completely for free. I’ll even retranslate everything from scratch if need be. Just whatever it takes to get an official release out.
And here’s the link to the original blog entry where this offer was made complete with the author’s portfolio and CV:
Honestly, Nintendo really should take them up on this deal. I mean, you’re getting the entire translation of the game (including any necessary changes or corrections) for absolutely no cost whatsoever. How the hell is this a deal you can not be interested in taking? I know if I ran a company which was in this situation that I’d take them up on it. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
If people are willing to help you out this much just to get a game they like officially released in other countries, you should definitely at least consider it.
What do you think of this deal? Will Nintendo take them up on this offer and localise Mother 3 now that it can be done for practically no cost whatsoever?
