Free Theme

It's nice to receive free things, as loyal customers, so Club Nintendo members in Europe should be pleased to know that the big N is distributing download codes for a Halloween 3DS HOME theme — check those emails if you're a member that receives the regular newsletters.

The theme itself has a typically light-hearted tune, and as you can see in the image above the bottom screen has cat's eyes; these are animated to move and primitively follow your taps on the touch screen. There's even a fun little sound effect when you open up your 3DS (or turn on the 2DS) from sleep mode.

If you get a code and aren't sure how to redeem it, use the following directions.

  • Go into the Theme menu (top left of the touch screen on the HOME area) and select Theme Shop.
  • Tap the icon (three horizontal lines) at the top right of the touch screen and select Enter Download Code.
  • Input the code, agree to a minor update (if needed) and then wait for it to download.
  • Use B to go back until you're on the first Theme menu screen, and then select Halloween: Spooky Black Cat.

Have you received a code, and if so what do you think of this free theme? Let us know, and we'll keep an eye out for any equivalent North American promotions.
