Nintendo isn't exactly stingy when it comes to handing out free Pokemon to players, but next month is your chance to score actual Pokemon games and we're not just talking some spinoff entry. 3DS owners who register their handheld and one of six select 3DS games at Club Nintendo starting March 1st are entitled to a free download of Pokemon X or Y.
Deals don't get more attractive than free, but it's not like Nintendo is needing to offload dead weight with Pokemon X and Y (this offer is only for digital downloads, anyway). The latest flagship Pokemon titles hit a million units in sales on launch day alone. Their combined sales were sitting at some 11.61 million worldwide by the end of January 2014.
The titles eligible for the reward program include:
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf
- Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
- LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins
- Mario Kart 7
- Super Mario 3D Land
- Yoshi's New Island
Link up your 3DS (original or XL) or 2DS handheld to your Club Nintendo account and register any of the above titles before March 31st, 2014 to be elibigle for a download code for either Pokemon X or Y (not both!). If you already have one or more of these titles or are thinking about picking any up anytime soon, think of this as an additional bonus. This could also be a golden opportunity for existing Pokemaniacs to get the other version of Pokemon X/Y.
