Super Mario 3D World soundtrack now on Club Nintendo!
So for those European Nintendo fans out there who want to hear the game’s music in some ‘official’ way, there you go. You can find Nintendo’s Tweet on the matter in the full post after the break.
My opinion though? Don’t really see much point in getting this CD. Not only do I not plan to buy a Wii U (and this game, among others) until Smash Bros comes out, but the entire soundtrack can be gotten far conveniently with this magical thing called the ‘internet’ and ‘Youtube’.
But if you want to see what Nintendo has to say on the matter (officially) or to see it on the Club Nintendo store, keep reading!
Nintendo Posts Club Nintendo Favourites!
Or in other words, what members of Club Nintendo consider the best games of 2013. Which as everyone has likely figured out, consist at least 90% of Nintendo games and roughly mirror the list of titles the company has promoted most in the last 12 months. Keep reading to see the list…
Super Mario 3D World Soundtrack to be available on Club Nintendo!
In Japan at least, where a 77 track set of soundtrack CDs will be buyable by Club Nintendo members in the region.
But what does it look like? What do I think of this whole deal? Find out below in the full length post…
Free Wind Waker HD Soundtrack on Club Nintendo Japan!
Well, this is a nice offer for those very few people interested in the game who happen to be living in Japan. Yes, if you register the game on the Japanese Club Nintendo between the 26th of September and 4th of November, you get a soundtrack CD for the game absolutely free. This soundtrack has 50 tracks and a pretty nice front cover too:
Animal Crossing New Leaf Welcome a Friend Promotion
When it comes to Nintendo and advertising, usually the results are not particularly great. You’ve got those ads that completely miss the mark (also known as every Wii U ad out at the moment), a bunch of contests that usually don’t add up to a whole lot and a lack of European marketing that can be best described as ‘utterly suicidal’. But Nintendo of Europe’s new Animal Crossing New Leaf promotion is a great exception to the rule. In fact, it might even be one of their ‘best’ (especially from the fan point of view) campaigns they’ve ever came up with.
Why? Well let me explain how the rules work:
If you register Animal Crossing New Leaf on Club Nintendo before 11pm on September 7th 2013, you get a Recommendation Code to pass to a friend.
Then if they register a 3DS XL on Club Nintendo and use your code…
They get a free download code for Animal Crossing New Leaf.
Yeah, you heard that right people. If you do this, you get a free copy of Animal Crossing New Leaf. As in, the whole game, for nothing. Okay, it’s a digital copy… but you can’t be too picky about that if you’re getting a new game for no monetary cost whatsoever.
Really though, this is a freaking awesome promotion. Free game for registering your 3DS XL with a code given by a friend (or knowing people nowadays, a random person on the internet)? Jackpot!
And what’s more, the contest rules don’t seem to state anything about what a ‘friend’ means in this situation, meaning that you could probably just go round asking for recommendation codes on Nintendo based internet forums instead. So rejoice European Nintendo fans, if you know someone who owns Animal Crossing New Leaf and haven’t registered your 3DS XL yet, it’s basically free games all round!
So what do you think about this contest? And if you’re a 3DS owner in Europe, are you planning to take advantage of it?
Japanese Club Nintendo Hacked
Thankfully, this hasn’t also happened to the US or European version of the service, but the Japanese version of Club Nintendo has recently been hacked and all users advised to reset their passwords.
Apparently members in Japan may have had their names, addresses and phone numbers compromised as well.
Pretty bad news isn’t it? I mean, I’m thankful this incident is only contained to the Japanese service rather than the different worldwide equivalents, but to see Nintendo themselves basically hacked and member information stolen is kind of scary. If you’re a Japanese fan of Nintendo and have a Club Nintendo account, change all your passwords immediately!
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:
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…
Free stuff and extra content for the Nintendo 3DS XL
In the last month or so, gamers have quite rightly been getting themselves all excited about the launch of the new Wii U console system and the New Super Mario Bros. U game that has been released along with it. However, we mustn’t forget about our other consoles, as there is a huge amount of exciting stuff going on with the Nintendo 3DS XL right now.
Check out the following special offers available for the console as well as for Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo 3DS games.
Double Stars when you download Nintendo 3DS packaged software
Following the success of a recent double Stars promotion, Nintendo is now offering gaming fans the chance to earn double Stars every time they download the download version of the Nintendo 3DS packaged software from the Nintendo eShop.
All you need to do to get 500 Stars (250 extra Stars than usual) is to link your Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL console to your Club Nintendo account, download the software and the complete a short survey within 28 days. You can then redeem your Stars to get gifts and exclusive items from the Club Nintendo Stars Catalogue.
Free game when you register your Nintendo 3DS XL (before January 15th, 2013)
An exclusive offer happening right now at Club Nintendo is the chance to get a free download game from the Nintendo eShop when you buy and register a Nintendo 3DS XL console. These aren’t any old games either; there are premium titles such as Super Mario 3D Land, New Art Academy and even the king of puzzle games, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.
You need to be really quick to benefit from this winter promotion – register your Nintendo 3DS XL at Club Nintendo by January 15th, 2013 to get your free game.
New QR Codes for Fallblox
Fallblox, in which you push and pull blocks and battle against the forces of gravity, is already immensely playable. Now that Nintendo is offering extra stages to add to your game with a series of new QR Codes, it will become even more fun!
The new Fallblox QR Codes, available from the Nintendo website, will add Challenge W-2, Cactus, Challenge W-1 and Parachute to your game. All you need to do is load up Fallblox on your Nintendo 3DS XL, head to the Fallblox studio and then use the outer cameras of the console to scan the QR codes from the relevant website page.
Note: This is a guess post by Nintendo UK who wanted to bring attention to how you can get a free 3DS game by registering on Club Nintendo. It’s technically a press release, but I did feel the content was relevant enough to the site and source important enough that publishing it would be in the best interests of Nintendo 3DS Daily’s readers.
I would personally recommend anyone even remotely wanting to use Club Nintendo to register their games should hurry up and register their 3DS XL as quickly as possible. Do you really want to turn down the likes of Super Mario 3D Land or Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask as a free game?
And the Double Stars thing is a good reward as well, especially if you want to get any of those exclusive Club Nintendo rewards that cost a small fortune in Stars to get.
