GAME Offers Buy One Get One Half Price Tomodachi Life Deal

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

For physical or download copies via online store

We're fans of the slightly bizarre Mii-sim Tomodachi Life here at Nintendo Life, and it's been enjoying a solid — if unspectacular — run in the UK charts, as one example. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime has also been making positive noises about sales in the region, though we'll see how it does when NPD results arrive in a few weeks time.

UK Retailer GAME is keen to shift some extra copies, meanwhile, as it's now running a buy one get one half price promotion on its website — the offer only applies at that link, not in stores. It's only valid with new copies or eShop downloads, though at the time of writing the retailer doesn't have any boxed copies in stock; priced at £29.99, that gives you a second (eShop) copy for $14.99.

Nintendo of Europe does also provide two "Welcome Version" demo codes with each full copy that can be passed on to others, of course, with save data then transferable.

Have you jumped into Tomodachi Life yet, or taken advantage of a friend's 'Welcome Version' code? Let us know.

I think you mean "gives you a second (eShop) copy for £14.99." Anyway, yes I have Tomodachi Life already and it's freaking awesome! I love making songs at the music studio and uploading them to YouTube.

I need to start playing this game. Downloaded it and then Mario Kart stole all my attention away from 3DS.

@Tymek If you want to buy the game anyway, you can give me the working half-priced code and get the £16 from me.
Now if that ain't an awesome deal i don't know what is. ;)

@eviLaTtenDant why don't you buy the game for £29 and then sell the download code to your friend for £16! That way you both get it at half price lol. Pfffffffft

What's the point of this game if you have friends?
And i see you're not really used to deciphering what the ;) smiley means. So sorry.
Anyway i'll not pay more than 20€ for this game (which atm equals about £16).

Typical game we have a sale but the physical version is out of stock.
like they list wii fit u + fit meter for £2.99 out of stock obviously. on the rare ocassions it's in stock it's over £40.

I very rarely buy anything from them anymore anyway but if I did I wouldn't buy this just for an offer just to buy the same game again

Same offer is available on physical copies in store. Buy one for £34.99 get one half price. They were confusingly stickered as £17.49 if bought with qualifying product, but I checked with the assistant and the qualifying product is a full price copy of TL. I'll buy the download codes from their online store...

If this promotion was available in Canada, I would've gave my friend 20 dollars so she can buy a copy for me with her purchase of Tomadachi Life. Oh well, these kinds of promotions usually don't go to Canada so I'm used to it. :|

@Iggly I think you mean north america.... I want to try this game out but not willing to put down $40 dollars for a quirky sim. I hope we get a discount soon, or just wait for Harvest Moon :(

I picked up 2 physical copies in store today without knowing about this, neither did the sales clerk..... When he ran it through the till I got one half price! Very nice surprise

This is a great promotion and makes sense for a social game like this since there will likely be pairs/groups of friends buying and sharing the demos.

And once again, NoA doesn't have a freaking clue.
