European Ocarina of Time Soundtrack Offer Extended

Posted by James Newton

You have until 30th June

The weekend rush of Club Nintendo members registering their copies of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D resulted in errors for many, denying Zelda fans the limited edition orchestral soundtrack CD. Now Nintendo Europe has responded, and it's good news.

Some members who registered their game between Friday 17th June and Monday 20th June experienced errors preventing them from claiming their prize, but Nintendo has now squashed these problems, giving you until 30th June to register your game if you haven't already done so.

Nintendo has pledged to contact users who registered their game but were unable to claim their soundtrack CD with details of how to proceed.

We would like to update our Club Nintendo members who have attempted to register their The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D title with Club Nintendo over the weekend in order to take part in the bonus soundtrack CD promotion.

Unfortunately, we encountered a technical issue with our Club Nintendo website and this resulted in an error for some customers when trying to claim the promotional soundtrack CD from Friday afternoon until today, Monday, June 20th. This issue is now solved, but we would like to extend our sincere apologies to all Club Nintendo members who encountered this problem.

Our The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D CD Soundtrack promotion continues to run until June 30th, 2011. All European Club Nintendo members may register for and receive a bonus soundtrack CD until that date. We will be in contact soon with Club Nintendo members who registered their software, but were not able to enter their details for the soundtrack CD, with information on how to proceed in order to receive the CD.

@Berzerker: According to the club nintendo NA site, anyone who registered before 12:01am pacific time Tuesday June 21 should be getting a CD. If your really worried give them a call.

@Jango-Forest I thought the soundtrack offer was only over the weekend, but that might have been the NA offer. I've adjusted the piece accordingly however.

It was always stated that it ended the 30th of June for the UK:
"Club Nintendo Members who register their copy of the game will have the chance to get their hands on an exclusive THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: OCARINA OF TIME 3D SOUNDTRACK CD, featuring a slew of great tracks from the game score. But, if you want to get your hands on one, you'll have to register the game by the 30th of June 2011!"

Club Nintendo NA now has a message that says the soundtrack event is over. Although if you registered your game by yesterday and didn't get the CD I would still call them and see if they can fix you up.

Okay, this really ticks me off that NA people only had 2 days. Nintendo of America totally ignored people who had to order their copies, and couldn't just go to a shop and pick it up.

@KaelSTW -
If you haven't had an email regarding this, try emailing them reporting your failure to properly register for the CD. That's what I did, and I have had the acknowledgement email. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. This is where I sent my email to:-
NintendoServiceCentre@codestorm.co.uk

Just got the e-mail.Hopefully they will soon reveal their mysterious plan of how to get the CD if you already registered the game (like me). I'm glad they are honouring the deal though.I was a bit miffed when people said they only had 2000 copies!

This difference between what Nintendo does for it's customers in the Americas and European regions is just one more of their illogical decisions. This particular decision seems rather more unfair than most.

The way in which the Club Nintendo offer is worded in Europe would suggest that everyone who registers by June 30th, 2011 has a chance to get the music CD and isn't guaranteed (maybe random draw selection). The North American Club Nintendo is giving the OoT CD to all that registered within a small window due to demand. If NoA did a similar deal as Europe they would have an issue with server loads processing requests so close to the end of the CN year.

Edited for clarification/

@below - When the order is processed does Club Nintendo Europe give a CD shipping confirmation?

Wait a minute...
Europe gets the game first, and has until a later date to register. How does this make sense?

Don't forget- most spots in the European region got really amazing pre-order bonuses and we in the US pretty much got nothing.

And yet, some are persistent in complaining about NoE selling them short over small stuff when they've been 'very' nice to them.

I registered my game on the release date for the UK, 17/06/2011 and I got my confirmation email that they had shipped it at exactly 1:02:58pm.
