Go to club Nintendo... click on "My Account" and the first thing you should see is your stars balance with an arrow on the right hand side.. that's the banner.

Just keep clicking the right arrow until you see the banner titled "Nintendo 3ds XL promotion" and click on claim your free game.

Thats how I found it anyway I had to reload the "My account" screen a few times though the banner didn't seem to want to load at first.

I finally found what I was looking for. I'm a regular user of Firefox, but what the Hell? And they say Internet Explorer is the worst. I had to use Chrome and got that banner. I suppose there's no problem that you don't actually get the email with the code until nearer the time?

I got the code about three days later, but we can't redeem it until Jan 1st.

Just registered the gf 3DS XL there.Had problems doing it via firefox so ended up doing it through internet explorer.

I didn't know that Prof Layton was 1 of the free games you could download as i bought this game for my gf christmas.Ended up going for Super Mario 3D Land.

Has your sister gotten her code yet?

I registered my 3DS XL last night and chose Professor Layton. I noticed it says that it can take a few days for them to send you an email with your download code so I was just wondering how long people had to wait before they got their code?

She got it two days ago I think, so just over a week total from registration to collection. She had to make a new Nintendo account because she couldn't get the password sent from the old one probably due to a lapsed Hotmail account.

It might be a bit quicker now that the initial rush has gone.
