A long-time fan of Nintendo since the days of the N64 and original Game Boy systems. I enjoy writing, game design, and analytic discussion about all my favorite things. I am also a Pokemaniac.


  1. You don’t need a hard copy. Digital works as well.

    The promotion has also been going on since May 30th, when MK8 came out; not since the beginning of the month.

  2. Also note, make sure you check your Club Nintendo account AND your deluxe digital account – I got full credit with BOTH from redeeming the download. That gave me an extra five bucks credit to spend on the eShop, plus more Club Nintendo points to spend…on nothing since they don’t have crap anymore lol. But I’ve got the points banked at least. 🙂

  3. Thank you very much, AW! The info about points turning into $$ in my deluxe digital account was very useful for me )) I mean, I knew this promotion existed, but since I haven’t purchased anything for Wii U online I almost forgot about it. I didn’t know Nintendo treated these bonus games as purchases for deluxe set owners.
