Bulbousaur said:

Entered. The demo for this game was ok, but I'm hoping the actual game is better. I'm up for some free games though



cammy said:

Awww. UK only. Us Irish don't get to enter.

Surprised by the demo, I certainly interested by the full game.



Weedy said:

I've entered. I just hope they announce the winner before the release date; I don't want to be both inpatient and lucky and end up with two copies!



Yoshi3DS said:

Hey guys, we can only run contests with what we're provided, and when we say we can only award the prizes to people in certain areas, those are the areas to which we're restricted by the prize donors for whatever reason. We're sorry we aren't able to offer this particular competition to users in countries outside the UK. However, we appreciate you leaving constructive comments as opposed to complaints that it's not available for your region. Please take the opportunity to be graceful and wish your fellow eligible users well. Thanks in advance! :3

And as always, if you've entered on accident, don't worry — we have ways of determining where in the world you're coming from and we will ignore your entry accordingly, no big deal. :3

I forgot about the demo, going to get it to try it.

Cool that you guys are having this contest.



Oregano said:

Ooo nice, I wasn't sure whether I was getting the game but might as well enter.



NinGamer said:

Tasuki said:

Aw man its for UK. I am going to have to move there someday so I can take part in these great contests.



New_3DaSh_XL said:

Only UK? Darn...
Oh well, never played a Castlevania, not like I've been hyping it or anything.



antdickens said:

Y'all need to direct your complaints at Nintendo of America to give us more prizes



FullbringIchigo said:

@emeyece problem is the 3DS is region locked unlike the other DS's so if they have the UK version they have to make it only for the UK because the game won't work anywhere else



MoldyClay87 said:

My bad, I entered before seeing it was UK only. Maybe non-UK winners can donate to UK friends? lol



FonistofCruxis said:

I'm not entering the competition as I plan on starting the series with the first Castlevania on 3DS VC but good luck to everyone who has.



Linky_97 said:

@Majin-Naruto all games around EU have the same region lock that means that you can play the game as long as you have an european 3DS. BTW UK is in Europe...



darkgamer001 said:

Yeah I read the above admin comment on the whole competition not being available to those outside the UK. So NintendoLife, don't take this personally. If anything I'm directing it to Konami (I know they won't read this but whatever) -
Is a frikkin delivery outside of the UK that difficult in this day and age, in this globalized world!?? Geez...rant over



Justaguest said:

the game looks thousand times better on older 3ds (not XL). Glad I still have my aqua blue



10bwalker99 said:

Just entered. Hope they announce before release date because I do not want 2 copies. Just 1 from here!



darkgamer001 said:

Tasuki....a fair point, but in that case, why not make the competition at least region specific? In this case, Europe only?



thesnowdog said:

Tried the demo and was impressed. I never win anything but I entered anyway lol. Have never played any of the Castlevania games but love anything to do with vampires so will buy it if (when) I don't win. Will probably check out the other games too I think.



Ben_Rage_V2 said:

I wish I was eligible to win the prize, being that I know the answer to the question (I still entered). Good luck to all who are eligible and I hope whoever wins the game has a blast playing it.



SanderEvers said:

If I enter (and win) can't you just leave it on the beach? I'll swim across the North Sea to get it.

Well, not really. But I could

Or I could open a British e-mail account and you can send the eShop download code to it?



Weedy said:

Hmm.... A little concerned there's not a single review out for this game yet. It's out in the US tomorrow right?!
I'm guessing it's under embargo until the very last minute, which is usually a bad sign.
Having said that, the demo was great. I really hope I'm wrong.



SensationalSean said:

I'm in the US with my EU 3DS, so I'm getting a friend to mail over an EU copy. Stupid region locking...still really excited for the game though!
