Get the Game, Get Another Free

How close is Nintendo and the Wii U system to life support? Close enough that two Sonic titles that Nintendo published for Sega in Europe, as well as many other prominent games, will be part of a giveaway upon next month’s release of Mario Kart 8.

Nintendo made it official in a Nintendo Direct this morning. In all, ten additional games will be included in the deal.  Players in the EU who purchase either MK8 standalone, the limited edition, or the special Wii U hardware bundle that will have MK8 included and register the copy with Club Nintendo between May 30th and July 31st will get a free download code for one of the following titles:

  • Nintendo Land
  • New Super Mario Bros. U
  • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
  • GAME & WARIO
  • Pikmin 3
  • The Wonderful 101
  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
  • Sonic Lost World
  • Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games
  • Wii Party U

Both digital and physical copies of MK8 are eligible for the deal.

Nintendo, you may remember, published both M&S2014 and Sonic Lost World in mainland Europe as part of a three game Sonic exclusivity deal. It’s also why the deal is limited to Europe; in North America, players can only choose from NSMBU, Wind Waker HD, Wii Party U, or Pikmin 3 in the deal.
