Register Mario Kart 8 at Club Nintendo and get 1 of 4 Free Wii U Games

Mario Kart 8 releases May 30th, and Nintendo is really pushing to get people registered on their Nintendo Club. First it was registering your 3DS to get a free copy of either Pokemon X or Y. Now if you register the game on Club Nintendo you get to choose one game out of Super Mario Bros. U, Zelda the Windwaker, Pikmin 3, Wii Party U. Sorry if you don’t own a Wii U, but this does seem like Nintendo trying to give a more incentive for the purchase of the console with probably one of the biggest games on the console. (Mario Kart 8, Wii U)

Cool, I'll use it to get the Zelda Wind Waker remastering. First console Zelda purchase btw
LOL_WUT  +   646d ago
It was a good upgrade well worth it in my opinion. I'll be going for NSMBU ;)
theshonen8899  +   646d ago
I'm so glad I haven't gotten Pikmin 3 yet. I got the Zelda bundle and Zelda or Pikmin are the only games out of those four I'd get. Two games for the price of one.

Have fun with it. Wind Waker looks REALLY good on the Wii U and oozes character....Just make sure you get the upgraded sail for the boat as quick as possible.
Vegamyster  +   646d ago
Like apollo06 said, look at a video on Youtube and get that quick sail as soon as you can (it doesn't tell you how or where to get it) it makes the game much less tedious. I'll be getting Pikmin 3.
3-4-5  +   646d ago
I have the WWHD bundle & NSMBU, so I will be getting Pikmin 3. I was going to buy it eventually but was kind of waiting for a price drop. Now I don't have to worry about that.
Neonridr  +   645d ago
seeing as I have WW, Pikmin 3 and NSMBU.. I guess I am going with Wii Party U, lol

Oh well, I am not going to complain, free is free.
WPX  +   645d ago
Well, after all, nothing beats free.
lilbroRx  +   645d ago
I wish they offered Sonic and Mario at the Olympics like Europe does.
randomass171  +   645d ago
Sonic Lost World for me. :(
GordonKnight  +   645d ago
I've got all four of those games. What will nintendo do for my day one purchase of Mario Kart 8?
randomass171  +   645d ago
Well, there's two alternatives. You can either give the game code to a friend or you can sell the physical copy, shave some money off of your purchase and just download it for free. :)
animegamingnerd  +   646d ago
i am gonna get Wii Party U since i already own everything else
Metallox  +   646d ago
I'll sell my code =p so I can avoid that game.
apollo06  +   646d ago
Why don't you trade in any of those other games towards Mario Kart 8?
eternal1973  +   646d ago
ooh might get pikmin 3 - hope this is for the UK as well though, we always seem to miss out
jcnba28  +   646d ago
Europe gets 10 games to choose from:

eternal1973  +   646d ago
Cheers! - enjoyed the wonderful 101 but not enough to buy, might get that instead
Neonridr  +   645d ago
damn, would have loved to have gotten Sonic or MH3. Why do you forsake North America Nintendo!?!?!?!?
Alex_Boro  +   646d ago
Is Pikmin 3 good? Never played Pikmin ever.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   646d ago
Do you like real-time strategy games with resource management and puzzles?
Alex_Boro  +   646d ago
If I like portal will this be fun?
Neonridr  +   645d ago
@Alex_Boro - why would you even ask that? How would you even think that Portal and Pikmin would even be in the same league. Sounds like you want more generic FPS games, so I would stay far away from Pikmin then.

The game would have more in common with games like Command & Conquer, Warcraft than Portal.
deafdani  +   645d ago
@neonridr: he mentioned Portal because one guy replied to him asking whether he likes resource management and puzzle games. Portal is a puzzle game, so he mentioned it as a frame of reference: it's obvious he doesn't know anything about the Pikmin franchise and is asking for advice.

You could have told him politely that it's a completely different kind of game. You came across very rudely. Portal is far from a "generic FPS", even if it, indeed, has nothing to do with Pikmin...

Qrphe  +   646d ago
Yes, the best in the series. You don't need to play the others to play this one either.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   646d ago
It's a different game compared to Portal.
Think of this as a less complicated but still challenging version of Starcraft.

You get up to 100 of any combination of Pikmin on the field at the same time, separate them between three player-controlled characters that you can freely switch between, then use all three of your miniature armies to micro-manage fighting creatures, solving puzzles, securing food supplies, and finding/defeating the bosses to progress the story.

I think you'll like it if you're into that sort of thing.
jholden3249  +   646d ago
It's the best. Has no relation to Portal. However, it's one of the best games I've ever played- it's just so different than anything else out there. I guess that's the only similarity it has with Portal. They're both unique.

I'll say this- I'd be surprised, no, I'd be AMAZED if you didn't enjoy Pikmin 3.
MNGamer-N  +   646d ago
Pikmin 3 is awesome. Actually all 3 Pikmin games are awesome. Play them all.
thehobbyist  +   645d ago
Think of it like an RTS. Where YOU can die.
randomass171  +   645d ago
Pikmin is a lot like a combination of Starcraft and Lemmings. I've played the first two and they're super fun, so I've been psyched to play the third game for a while. Basically if you like games that have to do with puzzles and micromanagement, you'll love any of the Pikmin games I reckon. It's fun, smooth and often gorgeous to look at. :)
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   646d ago
I wish we were getting all the same game options that EU is getting for the freebie.
I'd pick up Sonic: Lost World in a heart-beat.
Oh well, might as well choose NSMBU, since I don't have it.
Neonridr  +   645d ago
don't feel too bad, NSMBU is awesome. Especially with extra players at your house.

Even though it will cost you, I will highly recommend getting the Luigi DLC.
Austin48  +   646d ago
This is a great deal I'm picking up windwaker HD
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   646d ago
A pretty good deal.
Reeze  +   646d ago
As I've already said, I have all four games, so reply to this comment if you're interested in my code.
Sitdown  +   646d ago
I am
SonyKong64  +   646d ago
I would really love your code !!
o-Sunny-o  +   645d ago
GordonKnight  +   645d ago
Promotional codes are not for resale.

Just call Nintendo. They might offer you another game, which could possibly be a physical copy. That's what I'm doing because I'm in the same boat with you and have all four titles as well.
Reeze  +   645d ago
I am not interested in money, I just want to help someone out with a free game.
SpiralTear  +   646d ago
Either Wind Waker HD or Pikmin 3 for me.
Darkfist  +   646d ago
so how do we register a digital Mario Kart 8?
wls1012  +   646d ago
good question
Neonridr  +   645d ago
as long as your Wii U is registered to your Club Nintendo account it gets registered when you buy it. Have you ever bought anything on the eShop before? VC games? Indie games? They automatically show up on your Club Nintendo account so that you can fill out the surveys to get coins.
jcnba28  +   645d ago
Club Nintendo's website > Product registration > Enter code
GordonKnight  +   645d ago
You have to create a club Nintendo account on the Nintendo website.
wls1012  +   646d ago
is it gonna be a not for resale version or digital,what are we really getting?
Neonridr  +   645d ago
If you are purchasing the bundle it could end up being a digital game, who knows. But even retail copies of the game come with this deal.
deafdani  +   645d ago
The bundle includes a physical copy of MK8. The game case appears pictured in the box along with the Wiimote and wheel attachment. :)
KentBlake  +   646d ago
Since the only game I don't own is Wii Party U, I guess this promotion does nothing for me. I wish Wondeful 101 was part of this.
Neonridr  +   645d ago
So you're saying you won't download a free game?
KentBlake  +   645d ago
No, I'm saying this promotion won't be enough to make me purchase Mario Kart on day one.
Neonridr  +   645d ago
oh sorry, I misunderstood. Yeah I love all those PS4 and MS games that give you another game for free when you buy it. Those promotions are the best.. oh wait.
SixtyNine  +   645d ago
Maybe. . it's time I buy myself a wii U. MK8, for Pikmin 3 or Zelda.

pcz  +   645d ago
that's a good offer.

i'd get pikmin 3
R00bot  +   645d ago
That's a great offer, I think I'll be getting MH3 or Zelda.. Not sure which yet.

Also, we kind of also get a free copy of Super Mario Kart as well if you download it digitally, since they take however much Super Mario Kart was off of MK8's price.
