    Question Regarding The "Nintendo Free Game" Campaign

    Nintendo has a campaign going on now where if you buy a Nintendo 3DS XL and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon OR that one Pokémon game and register them, then you can get a free 3DS game for download (one of a select 6). Details Here

    So, my question is:
    Does anyone know if you can DOWNLOAD-PURCHASE Luigi's Mansion or the Pokémon game as opposed to physically buying a copy? I went to BestBuy today and they're on back order. I could call a bunch of places and/or Nintendo Customer Support (which isn't open until tomorrow), but I figured I'd ask you knowledgeable ladies & gentlemen first.

    Thanks very much.

    I'm mostly sure that as long as the 3DS XL's eShop configuration is linked to the same Club Nintendo account that you registered the system with, it will work. The only thing that matters is that the system and game is showing up on the same account. If it's digital or retail, either way the game is on the account.

    I was hoping to get my hands on a 3DS XL this month to try it for myself, but the funds weren't available like I was hoping they would be.

    Thanks! That's what I was figuring as well, just wondered if someone had tried it yet.

    So, I took the gamble downloaded Luigi's Mansion and it worked. You just have to make sure that your Club Nintendo account is linked to your 3DS eShop before purchasing and it'll automatically be added to your Club Nintendo account shortly after purchasing and downloading.
    Hope that info helps someone else wondering.

    Also, llaffer, they always have promotions or bundle deals going on, it seems. For example, in another month or so Animal Crossing is coming out; there will be a limited edition of the 3DS XL with the game for only $219.00 USD. Maybe that'll be your time to buy?

    That thing is UGLY! And I have no interest in Animal Crossing. I've never played any of the previous games in the franchise.

    I'm likely going to have to wait it out until there is a system that has Link to the Past 2 packed in.

    But my kids are going to want to have Pokemon when it comes out, and that is likely to come out first, but until I get a replacement, one of the kids doesn't have a 3DS. choices -- choices ...
