For our readers living over on the eastern side of the Atlantic, Nintendo is offering a special promotion to players that purchase and register a new Nintendo 3DS XL.
Between now and January 15th, 2013, players need to visit the Club Nintendo website and register their Nintendo 3DS XL. It’s a simple method of making a new Club Nintendo account (if you don’t already own one) and inputting the serial number on the back of the Nintendo 3DS XL. Afterwards, players will be prompted to choose one of five free games to download off of the Nintendo eShop: New Art Academy, Super Mario 3D Land, New Style Boutique (Style Savvy, here in the States), Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, and Freakyforms Deluxe.
Any Nintendo 3DS XL that has been purchased in Europe since July 2012 is eligible, so don’t worry if you were one of the first to pick one up. Nintendo still has your back. This promotion is valid for residents of the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal and Russia.
