If you have a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sitting at home and feel up for jumping into a race or two, you could net yourself some lovely eShop credit to spend on your next favourite game.
Nintendo UK has announced the 'Nintendo UK VS Cup', in which players will be able to get stuck into some friendly Mario Kart 8 Deluxe online tournaments. Races will be taking place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays and it's super-easy to get involved.
All races will be 150cc with pretty standard rule setups. You can take part at the following times by heading to the online menu in the game, selecting 'Tournament', and entering the relevant code:
Time: 10:00 BST to 16:00 BST | Code: 1550-5316-8171
Time: 14:00 BST to 20:00 BST | Code: 0950-5784-3755
Time: 10:00 BST to 16:00 BST | Code: 4930-6688-4651
Time: 14:00 BST to 20:00 BST | Code: 1588-6474-1931
If you fancy getting your hands on that eShop credit for your trouble, all you need to do is tweet a video clip from one of your races (just hold down the Switch's capture button during a race to record) and include the relevant hashtag. You'll be entered for a chance to win £10 worth of credit:
If you decide to take part, best of luck! Let us know if you'll be diving in for some races with a comment below.
great news.... it's only for UK Players?
Had my hopes up until I saw the tweet part.
So how well you race has nothing to do with it?
Does this include Ireland or is it UK only?
@cammy Answering my own question, just checked nintendo.co.uk website and the first terms and conditions say 'residents of Great Britain' only. So not for me. Nice idea though.
I don't do tweeter😔
How long will the tournament be on for and what socual media can you share your clip to?
@Lemon6538 FB or Twitter. Looks like only Twitter counts, though.
@Lemon6538 If you're talking about retweet or such, you don't need to. They pick the winners from the people by clicking hash tags.
@TheLightSpirit They have a great way of lumping us in with the UK for anything that would cost them money, but when it comes to giveaways we are always separate.
I tried the code for thursday at the time listed and it didn't work
