New 3DS Owners In Japan Get Pokémon X/Y Or Puzzle & Dragons Z In June


Nintendo’s “monthly recommended software campaign” for the Nintendo 3DS is continuing in Japan. As reported in the past, this is a campaign whereby people that buy a new Nintendo 3DS get a download code for a free game alongside their purchase.


For the month of May, Nintendo are offering Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Yo-kai Watch to new 3DS owners. 3DS buyers will be able to pick from either of these games until May 31st.


For the month of June, Animal Crossing will remain on the list, but Yo-kai Watch will be replaced by four other games—Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Puzzle & Dragons Z and Pokémon Art Academy. (That last one will be available after its release on June 19th.)
