Download copies come with free original via the eShop, naturally
Nintendo's E3 announcement of Bayonetta 2 including a Wii U-enhanced edition of the original Bayonetta was pleasing; it's terrific news for Nintendo gamers, as those yet to enjoy the original can now enjoy both titles in the correct order, with the original even having new outfits and...
2DS deals everywhere
If you've not yet picked up a 3DS — what are you doing? — then the 2DS is perhaps a tempting option. Released by Nintendo to target a young demographic, it also provides a slightly lower entry point than the standard and XL 3DS models; all you lose is the 3D effect and clamshell design. When it last provided figures...

Nintendo is keen for plenty of gamers to at least try the...
Think of the children!
A statistic that probably got little attention when Nintendo was dishing out financial results and sales figures recently was that, between 12th October 2013 and 31st March 2014, 2.2 million 2DS systems were sold in Western territories. The budget 2D-only iteration of the portable, which comes with a slab / tablet design, has...
A pin code and web page will be distributed
For those picking up Mario Kart 8 when it launches at the end of May, a welcome bonus is that registering the game by 31st July will entitle those gamers to a free Wii U retail title.

3DS or 2DS and one game required
Late last week a promotion leaked by Toys "R" Us emerged, in which new 3DS owners would have a chance to grab a free download of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y.

Five games to choose from
Earlier this week the European Download Update included the "Super Indie Connection Sale", a set of five download-only titles on the Wii U eShop that are available at meaty discounts on the condition that you own at least one of the games.

Both are now available in North America for $29.99

The European offer makes it Down Under
Pikmin 3 is now available in Europe and Australia either from retail outlets or the Wii U eShop and plenty of people have been out exploring the vast environments found in the game.

Reward depends on spend, naturally
While Nintendo of Europe is encouraging retail downloads on Wii U by offering a 30% discount on The Wonderful 101 if Pikmin 3 has also been purchased on the eShop, Nintendo of America has now stepped in with its own offer for residents of the U.S. and Canada. In a bid to tempt you into abandoning discs for a hard...
That 30% off The Wonderful 101 offer just got more tempting
During last week's Nintendo Direct Mini in Europe, the company revealed a promotion that will allow people who purchase Pikmin 3 from the eShop to receive a 30% discount on the digital version of The Wonderful 101. This certainly sounds like a tempting offer from Nintendo but many a savvy...

3DS XL or current owners need not apply, so tough
Nintendo of Europe has been rather generous with 3DS promotions, with two notable examples to date — one rewarded 3DS XL owners with a free game, and the current promotion gives a fourth game for free if three others from a specified list are purchased. Nintendo of America has missed out to date,...
The ultimate gift for Europe
One of the downsides of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the 3DS, compared to its Wii U compatriot, is that it doesn't feature online play. It does, however, have local multiplayer, which allows gamers to play with others who own either the handheld or Wii U version, so you're not entirely missing out on co-op in this...
