Don't believe slidecage about the download only thing. (or anything really)

 

Atlus has been telling people to make sure they register SMTIV code from the box because "you really should". Retail is surely included.

hate to break it to you   but   im pretty sure  

you have to buy both games  as  DOWNLOADS ONLY..

 

carts will not work.. there is no way to   regester your code on  the E shop    so  pretty sure these are  download only

It's a Club Nintendo promotion not an eShop promotion.

Exactly, the only way eShop is involved, is that they are giving away credit.

Retail will always be better than digital.

nintendo told me they thought it would be   download only when i called...maybe they have no clue  

 

.    i cant ever recall  of a time they pushed a    Cart promo in their  e shop   (they did not even push the   buy a  3ds  +  xxx game   few months back and get   XXXX download  free in their  E SHOP

 

also many peoples  E shops  are NOT linked up to their  nintendo  rewards shop     (can you  link up  two  even if you have  2 different emails)  

 

 

 

 

love how people go   O they better include   everyone who  purchase this game      not just now..  why the Fuck should they ..  you got the game 4 months ago you enjoyed the game for 4 months .  That is like going back to  a store and going  I want my 30 bucks back cause the game you sold me  3 months ago  is now on  sale..

no wait what im i talking about most people here  THINK THEY ARE OWED IT

Yeah it's nothing like the "make digital games cheaper" thing everyone's always begging for.

 

Nintendo can never win.

So what you think is that the 30 dollars will come off both titles when bought together?

 

No, that's not how it works at all

Well the eshop's back up and it's on there.  Only problem is that it says see game page for details, and then there's no details to be found.  This is just bound to be a mess in execution and reception with how vague this is stated and that they're clearly showing the physical game boxes in this graphic.

I'm gonna wait for Nintendo or Atlus (considering they have a "very cool announcement" happening soon) to make an official statement on this. I already have SMT4 pre-ordered, & if retail copies count, I will totally use my $25 in GS credit to get FE:A as well. Been meaning to pick that game up & this is a great deal. I'll be set on getting VC games for quite some time.

Just added the Fire Emblem code on July 2nd (for the new Club Nintendo year), have SMTIV preordered already from Newegg, so assuming this works on physical copies, and counts already registered games (even if it's after July 1st), I'll be a lock for the $30 credit. :)

Wasn't planning on picking up smt day one, but if this is true...looks like I will have to. Now what to buy digitally with 30 dollars credit...DECISIONS DECISIONS.

 

Already have a bunch of the big titles for my 3ds...mario kart, animal crossing, mario 3dland ete etc.

 

Maybe its time for pushmo!

During the unboxing the guy also made a special point to show the CN code that games with the physical release and to say that we should all register on CN.  That is highly unusual for two reasons:

 

1. Previous Atlus games have not come with CN codes

2. It's never been a huge deal about registering on CN unless it was part of a promo.

 

I really don't care one way or another, but there is enough evidence there for me to say it's definitely possible it will be for physical.

also i have no clue why people think this will be digital only. it will work with either type of copy. why else would atlus HIGHLY recommend registering it and going out of their way to point it out in the unboxing?

Luckily I never registered my FE, holding off on doing so until the promotion is officially announced

Can we choose to get the 30 dollars credit on the Wii U shop instead of the 3DS?

Ive yet to see a eShop game be cheaper than retail... retail often has $10 or even $20 off on 3DS games (B1G1 50% off for example)... eShop never has anything as enticing... Retail standard is $40, if eShop standard was $30, i would never buy a physical copy.


Tetris Axis is $10 on EShop & Project X Zone is $34.99, $5 cheaper than retail.

I highly doubt it. That would be really cool though.

Like many others, I hope FE is retroactive. I've had my physical copy of SMTIV pre-ordered for a looooong time. I'd totally use that 30 bucks to maybe get Donkey Kong.

This is why I'm glad I have friends who don't ever use Club Nintendo codes!

 

I'll have to buy a copy of Fire Emblem (which I was planning to do anyways, this is only pushing me), but it'll be well worth it, essentially a B1G1.

This is an awesome deal if it's true, but of course I got FE used and it didn't come with a CN code ><.

I dunno what I would use this $30 credit for... Already have most big name titles for the 3DS and prefer physical titles... Maybe I will use it on virtual console stuff.
