Nintendo of Europe Offers Up Free Layton Swag

Posted by Shaan Joshi

A gentleman always travels in style

With Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask just around the corner, Nintendo of Europe is rewarding early purchasers with some free swag!

Starting on October 26 (at 8 AM BST/ 9 AM CST), those who register their copy of Miracle Mask will be eligible to win a free leather luggage tag, branded with Layton's signature hat.

But you better hurry, since there are only 5000 luggage tags available. And for those who might have an early copy floating around, registering before the contest officially beings will not enter you in the contest.

Unfortunately, this promotion is restricted to Europe, but we'll update you if Nintendo of Japan or America decides to hold their own. In the meantime, make sure to check out our review (here's a hint, we loved it!)

This is kind of cool, but what a strange prize.

Excuse my ignorance, but is a luggage tag somehow relevant to the PL series?

Don't EVER put "swag" in the title of an article again, or I will be forced to kill myself.

Just the thing you need to let thieves know that your bag likely contains a DS. ;)

Because I'm a yank, this doesn't really apply to me (sadly). But I'll ask anyway! Does this only apply to people who purchase a retail copy and wait for the appropriate time to register? Or can people buy their copy digitally at the right time?

@KneehighPark: Exactly what I was thinking.
Context is everything.
Refusing to use words just because certain groups use it for other things will only narrow your vocabulary.

Yep a luggage tag,and worthy gift for getting a game based on puzzles.
Maybe it's because Layton,and co,travels a lot.
But hey it's a nice little bit of Swag(showing my swagger Jagger there)(Oh lord why did I just said that),that I hope I'll get.

There are mythical words out there that have more than one meaning, like a bat could mean an animal or a baseball bat.

Swag is one of those words.

@Morphtroid

unfortunately, due to the internet, the meaning of words is evolving at a much faster rate than ever before.

just think of that infamous word that used to mean 'a bundle of sticks'. it is a shame that good words are transformed into those that cannot even be used due to corruption of meaning.

so 'swag' is the new 'epic' then? wish people would quit whining about fad words that go in and out of style; they were around before we were and they'll be around long after we're gone. the only problem with them IMO is that they immediately date a given piece of writing or literature and may grate at the ear in a few years' time.

as for the Layton luggage tag, it's a shame you'll never be able to use it for its intended purpose for fear of it being destroyed in the airline luggage process, lol. my luggage always winds up being kept together with duct tape, and the tags get lost every so often too :(

I could really care less about the word "swag." All I want is to see this reward on Club Nintendo of America!
