Buy A Nintendo 3DS And A Game, Get Pokemon X/Y For Free

By: Zach Walton - February 25, 2014

Nintendo regularly offers deals and promotions, but they aren’t exactly what you’d call satisfactory. While Sony is busy chopping 75 percent or more off the retail price of some games, Nintendo is okay with just lopping 20 percent off. With its latest promotion, it’s at least giving away a free game; but you’ll have to spend some serious cash to get it.

Nintendo announced this week that it’s offering a free copy of Pokemon X or Pokemon Y to anybody who purchases a Nintendo 3DS and one of the following games: Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, Animal: Crossing New Leaf, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins or Yoshi’s New Island. To redeem your free game, you’ll have to register both the console and one of the above games on Club Nintendo.

While it’s a little on the expensive side, it’s a decent deal for those who were already looking to get a 3DS and a copy of Pokemon X or Y. While you could just buy the 3DS and a copy of the game, you could get one of the other games for much cheaper as most of the above titles have been out for a bit longer. Some of the better titles include Super Mario 3D Land and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. If you’re just getting into the world of 3DS gaming, the above titles are an excellent place to start.

Oh, and if you were wondering, the promotion is available to those who purchase any of the available 3DS models, including the Nintendo 2DS.

    if you received a 3ds for christmas and haven’t registered it yet, could you claim this deal by buying one of the games and registering them both? is there are cut-off date for when the console needs to have been purchased by?
