I recently bought a Nintendo 3DS XL system and Pokémon X and I haven’t got around to registering both so that is good, I can now take advantage of this promotion. I would have registered them both eventually but this will be a good time to do so.

Super Mario 3D World is out soon too so if you have a Wii U you should get it. If you don’t have a Wii U then with Super Mario 3D World, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD and more there’s plenty to play on Wii U these days.
