Link Wii U or 3DS to Club Nintendo within 5 Days of Downloading Smash Bros. on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Update: Fans have had problems when it comes to registering digital games on the Club Nintendo service, missing out on the Super Smash Bros. promo.

In order to claim a Mewtwo download and soundtrack, Club Nintendo members must register copies of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. However, within the terms and conditions is a note that consoles must be linked prior to download or within 5 days of downloading the game. If not, the game will not be valid for the promotion.

An email from Nintendo support notes:

I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with registering your downloaded Super Smash Bros. for 3DS game.

In order to register a game downloaded from the Nintendo eShop your console needs to have been linked to Club Nintendo either prior or within 5 days of downloading the game. If this is not done then the game will not be valid for the promotion.

Please note that this system does not work retroactively, this means if you have not registered the console with 5 days of the game purchase then you are not able to register the game. We are also unable to manually add any purchases made before linking the console.

Thanks to JayUK for the tip.

Have you registered your digital copy of Super Smash Bros. yet?

This is specifically mentioning that your console needs to be LINKED to your Club Nintendo account within 5 days. It's pretty much a given that your console must be linked in order for a digital copy to show up on your Club Nintendo account.

I'm actually surprised you can even do this after 5 days of downloading. It clearly states that this is a requirement and must be done prior to purchasing digital goods.

Yeah I have no sympathy for people who wait too long or don't read everything in an agreement before jumping head first into something like this. It's like with all the people who missed out getting Xenoblade Chronicles, Last Story & Pandora's Tower for Wii or Amiibo Link or Marth...there are places to reserve a copy for oneself to GUARANTEE you get one. If you don't take this precaution or read up on a certain promotion you've only got yourself to blame for being unprepared....

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422

^^^ dnt do that! just wait for the paid mewtwo dlc. gotta be cheaper than re purchasing. 

Well then! I'm glad I bought physical copies!

One advantage of going digital with both games, they were already registered. Smilie

WHO THE FUCK ACTAULLY READS THE AGREEMENTS?!  I bought both copies, and had a panic attack cause i hadnt registered. Then i read i have until march. Oh, okay good. Ill register tonight. OH NO WAIT ITS TOO FUCKING LATE. Nothing shows up on my club nintendo account, cause you had to register within five days of purchse, got the 3ds game when it came out so i THINK its a little late. I mean know that mewtwo can be gotten later as paid (fuck that) and the cd can be ripped from the internet easy, but still, it was nice thinking i was gonna get some promotional stuff, only to have it ripped out from under me cause i didnt do some useless thing with stupid club nintendo

Hey at least they even gave you 5 days after, most companies don't even do that for you. It's also common knowledge that linking all related accounts to the system should be done FIRST during system set up. If you got a physical copy then use the Pin# when you can AFTER you link your account. If you bought a used copy....chances are the Pin# has already been used.
