Hi all,


I purchased the Mario Kart 8 digital download for the "bogo" offer thats going on until July 31st. After I downloaded the game I go no prompt for my free game code. I've been looking up and can't seem to find out how to get the free game. 





EDIT: I notice the game says in the important information tab that you must link your wii u console with club nintendo in order to be eligible to receive the free game. Considering I was in the nintendo e-shop I thought I was good, then I noticed my club nintendo account was NOT registered with my console prior to purchase. 


Did I really just miss out on my free game because of some ridiculous technicality? 


Any confirmation would be appreciated.

Just register your Wii U to your club nintendo account and you should be good, if it's already registered then link your eShop to club nintendo and the game will appear in club nintendo.



Add me on Wii U if you want to settle it in Smash

I logged into club nintendo on my wii u console and I filled out the survey, I now have 160 coins and I still HAVE NOT been able to select one of the games to download for my purchase of MK8. 


Everything I keep reading says I will not be eligible to download the free game if the console was not linked to a club nintendo account prior to purchase. 


I can't find anyone thats made this same mistake to find out if I can get the free game or not.

Do you have a download code?


After completing the survey you should get a download code and I didn't have any kind of a problem.


Nintendo must have problem,where you fill in the survey and that's why you aren't getting a code.
