By Ishaan . February 14, 2013 . 9:00am

Club Nintendo USA have a special deal for folks looking to buy a Nintendo 3DS XL. Buying a 3DS XL and registering it along with Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity or Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon will allow you to download one of these five games for free:


  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Star Fox 64 3D
  • Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask
  • Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive!
  • Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!

The offer is valid on Nintendo 3DS XL systems registered on or after Feb. 14th.


  • MrRobbyM

    I don’t plan on getting a 3DS XL until late March or April at the earliest so hopefully this deal lasts until then.I really want that Professor Layton game.

    • Christopher Nunes

      Likewise… only game I want to get, even though I don’t own them but they sound really run, as I have almost all the other games.

  • Shadowman

    I already have a 3DS XL and it’s registered, so if I buy luigi Mansion 2 and register it do I still get a game for free?

    • VietKnight

      No it has to be registered on Feb 14 or later, not earlier. Kind of sucks but I might buy a 3rd 3DS since I don’t want to use my regular 3DS or my blue 3DSxl

      • Christopher Nunes

        Don’t have a 3DS XL yet though I plan to get one eventually… but is there a time limit on this offer? Like will it last a month or so?

  • Meanwhile, in latin america …

      Nada como tener parientes en USA que te dejen usar su dirección para la cuenta de Club Nintendo (y que hasta se tomen la molestia de enviarte las cosas que canjees por las monedas, como las cartas hanafuda, la estatuilla del premio platino de Mario y compañía, o las cartas AR de Kid Icarus)

      • Lamentablemente es la única opción, también me tocó recurrir a eso. Por más que les “importe” esta parte del continente, no deja de sorprenderme la sarta de tonterías que provocan por no tener presencia oficial ( por ejemplo, los precios de eshop más caros que los de “retailer” :/ )

        • kmantle

          Si más no recuerdo, una vez leí que Nintendo eliminó parte de su prescencia por que las distribuidoras de aquí no respetaban los precios acordados y los inflaban para obtener más ganancias.
          Debido a eso, creo que lo más que nos toman en cuenta son las traducciones neutras (por neutras me refiero a que no traen modismos como las traducciones españolas) que les han estado poniendo a sus juegos en los últimos años.


    Cool, I haven’t bothered to register my 3DS XL yet because I’m hoarding the points for the maximum amount of platinum rewards. This definitely sounds neat.

    • gamefreak86

      In the same boat. Meantime playing vita. Glad havent opened and registered yet.

  • Spider-Man

    Ehh, nothing interesting on that list for me.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    what a deal…

  • A nice list. Now I want to go get an XL. Hopefully I can get a job before this so that I can acquire an XL.

    • James M Wallace

      Amen. I’m in the same boat. I’m getting a tax refund in two weeks but there are more important things to spend it on…

  • Risa

    Well I plan on getting a 3DS XL and Luigi’s Mansion so this sounds like an awesome deal for me. It’s just that I’m so close to getting platinum right now and I want to hoard the points towards my next club nintendo year. I really do hope this deal lasts until at least the end of this CN year. Otherwise, it won’t be much of a loss for me. I already own PLMM which is the only game I really wanted on that list.

    Not a bad promo

    Shit. Thanks for making me regret getting a 3DS when I did, Nintendont.>:(

  • RedShadoww

    Haha I got a 3DS XL 3 weeks ago and haven’t registered it due to laziness. Thank god for laziness.

  • Rei

    Nice, was going to upgrade to XL next week. Now i’ll a free game? Nice on Nintendo

  • I got my 3DS long time ago but I’m to lazy to register it.

  • Doctor Nebula

    I could’ve had waited to register mine, it’s only been 2 months T_T

  • Ferofax

    Lots of butthurt, blaming Nintendo for buying a 3DS too soon. As if they were forced, har har.

    Meanwhile, my birthday is right around that time, so that pretty much nails it for me.

  • TheInternetNomad

    Crap, I registered my XL + a ton of games I got late 2012 after reaching platinum on the first of January… Wish I waited.

  • Elvick

    I already have the games on that list which interest me and I won’t buy a XL for any reason.

    Oh well.

  • Dolly

    hold the phone. the europe register deal was better then this (we had to register a system only we didn’t have to buy the games) xD that never happens.

  • Tails the Foxhound

    Great, now release an XL color/special edition that I care about and I’ll upgrade like I want to.
