With Shin Megami Tensei IV releasing July 16th to stores and from the Nintendo eShop and with Fire Emblem Awakening being a critical success, Nintendo believes that you will love both Shin Megami Tensei IV and Fire Emblem Awakening for the Nintendo 3DS system and we think so too. For a limited time only, you can get a $30 Nintendo eShop credit when you buy and register both games and complete the registration surveys by August 31, 2013. Your $30 credit can be used to buy any content available from the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS or Wii U.
First you will need to join Club Nintendo, if you are not already a member, you can join here. If you purchased the game at a retailer, you\’ll be able to find the Club Nintendo inserts inside your qualifying game packages where you\’ll subsequently register the game at Club Nintendo with the PIN# printed on the insert and complete the registration survey by August 31st. If you\’re downloading the game, be sure link to your Nintendo 3DS system to your Club Nintendo account before you buy the game. Once you\’re linked, your downloaded game will be registered automatically. All you will need to do is sign into Club Nintendo and complete the registration survey.
If you purchased the Fire Emblem: Awakening hardware bundle, you must link your Nintendo 3DS system to your Club Nintendo account and complete the registration survey for Shin Megami Tensei IV to qualify for the promotion. Presumably, this also means that if you purchased Fire Emblem Awakening prior to this deal announcement, all you will have to do to be rewarded is purchase and register Shin Megami Tensei IV.
Once you\’ve completed your surveys, log back into your Club Nintendo account and click on the $30 eShop Credit item in your To-Do list. It may take up to one hour for the Club Nintendo website to be updated with your To-Do list item. Click \’redeem\’ on the $30 eShop Credit item page and confirm your order to receive an activation code with a value of $30 in Nintendo eShop credit.
Activation codes must be retrieved at the Club Nintendo site by September 30th, 2013
In the Nintendo eShop on your Nintendo 3DS system*, click on Menu, select Add Funds, then click on Redeem a Nintendo Prepaid Card. Enter the 16-digit code you received at Club Nintendo. Once you click \’Add\’, the credit will be added instantly to your account balance.
The code must be redeemed within the Nintendo eShop by December 31st, 2013. Once credit is added to your balance at the Nintendo eShop, there is no deadline to use your increased balance.
Moreover, you\’ll be limited to one $30 Nintendo eShop Credit per Club Nintendo account and any unretrieved or unredeemed activation codes for Nintendo eShop credit will have no value and will be deleted after the expiration dates listed above
Original Story: Soon, for a limited time, Nintendo will be offering a stellar deal on the 3DS eShop where, apparently, users who purchase Fire Emblem: Awakening or Shin Megami Tensei IV (or both?) will receive $30 back in eShop credit.
Nintendo will be providing further details about the offer on each game’s respective pages on the 3DS eShop, presumably when Shin Megami Tensei IV releases (due next week).
