Buy Nintendo 3DS or 2DS and Get Pokemon X and Y for Free

Nintendo is planning a pretty sweet promotional deal for North America this March, where new 3DS XL and 2DS owners will get the chance to grab a free download copy of Pokémon X or Y.

You can unlock the game by buying a console and one of the following six games:

Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Super Mario 3D Land, Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins, Yoshi’s New Island, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and Mario Kart 7 and register them on your Club Nintendo account between the dates of March 1st and March 31st.


Although the promotion has only been spotted in Toys “R” Us so far, it is extremely likely that this is a nationwide offer and is not exclusive to that particular retail chain.

Pokémon X and Y were released worldwide on October 12, 2013 and similar to previous installments; both games follow the journey of a young Pokémon trainer (and their friends) as they train Pokémon.

Pokémon X and Y are the first titles in the main series presented in fully 3D polygonal graphics, allowing for more interactivity with the overworld and more dynamic action during battles.

If you don’t own a 3DS or a 2DS already, this offer does tempt you to pick one up. Are you going to get the new system next month? Let us know in your comments!
