Register Three 3DS Games, Get a Fourth One Free – So Many Games Promotion

Been buying a lot of new 3DS games recently now that the system has tons of great games available to purchase?  Can’t afford yet another title and want to be part of an interesting promotion?  Well you may just be in luck, since Nintendo of Europe is launching the ‘So Many Games!’ promotion and letting anyone who registers three games get another one for absolutely free!

Best of all, the games eligible for this promotion are some of the best new games around, as shown by this list:

  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate
  • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (Nintendo 3DS version)
  • Luigi’s Mansion 2
  • Fire Emblem: Awakening
  • LEGO CITY Undercover: The Chase Begins
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf

So it seems like a great deal to take advantage of if you ask me.  After all, you’ve already likely bought Luigi’s Mansion 2, have some sort of interest in Fire Emblem Awakening and Animal Crossing and want at least one of those games a fair bit, right?  What’s more, the promotion lasts all the way to June 30th, so there’s plenty of time to purchase any games from the above list that haven’t been released yet too.

Any European Nintendo fans interested in taking up this offer?


Club Nintendo; Register 3DS XL and Luigi’s Mansion 2 or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, get Another 3DS Game Free!

This time though, it’s a deal for people living in the US rather than Europe or Japan, which is a nice change.  So what is this deal you may wonder?  Well these two pictures sum it up perfectly:

Club Nintendo Deal 1Club Nintendo Deal 2

So you buy either Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity or Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon along with a 3DS XL, register them on Club Nintendo and get either Freaky Forms Deluxe, Art Academy, Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask or Star Fox 64 3D absolutely free!

It’s a damn good deal if you ask me.  Don’t have a 3DS yet?  Buy a 3DS XL alongside one of the games above and get two fantastic games for the price of one!  If you don’t have a 3DS, there is absolutely zero reason you shouldn’t go for the above offer.

And even if you do already have a 3DS, it’s not a massive amount of money to upgrade to the 3DS XL by trading in the old one.  And you’re getting a free game for it.

So if you’re living in the US and have access to Nintendo of America’s version of Club Nintendo, go out and register Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon the minute you get it!  You won’t regret getting a classic like Super Mario 3D Land for free…


Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity Demo Coming to 3DS eShop

Feel like trying out the newest Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game but don’t know whether you’ll enjoy the Roguelike style gameplay?  Well it seems like you’re in luck, since a demo of the title is coming to the 3DS eShop next week (Thursday 7th March).  It’s only confirmed as coming to the US one in this announcement, but that should still give plenty of Pokemon and fan 3DS fans the chance to try out this title, right?

Here’s the Twitter post from Nintendo of America confirming the demo:

So, are you going to download the new Pokemon Mystery Dungeon demo? Or are you so convinced/unconvinced of the game that you’ve already made up your mind and don’t want to try it before the release date?

Nintendo 3DS Box Art; Monster Hunter, Brain Age and More

Well, here’s the box art for four more upcoming Nintendo 3DS games.  We’ve got quite a mix of games here such as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Brain Age Concentration Training, so here it all is:

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Box


First up, the US box art for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.  Considering the game hadn’t really been confirmed for release outside Japan before, it’s nice to know the game’s being localised and translated there via this box art.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinite

Next up, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity.  This is the localised title of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Magnate and the Infinite Labyrinth, and it makes a heck of a lot more sense than the Japanese name for the game does.

Brain Age Concentration Training Box Art

And here’s the US box art for Brain Age Concentration Training.  As you may have noticed, Nintendo of America is trying their darn best to minimise the whole ‘demon’ angle the game has going for it, presumably to avoid offending the overly religious.

Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon

Finally, here’s a clear shot of the final US box art for Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon, the highly anticipated 3DS title that’s being released over here on March the 24th 2013.  You can see the mansion much more clearly now, as well as an interesting bit of text talking about ‘online interactions’.  Guess that wifi thing is a lot more than just online leaderboards or DLC!

So there you have it, four more examples of 3DS game box art for upcoming titles. Are you excited by any of these, or the concept of Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon potentially having some sort of online multiplayer that’s not just about downloadable content or high score leaderboards?
