Nintendo giving away new free games with 3DS XL purchases

Nintendo has launched a special game giveaway from 21 March to 30 April. Anyone who buys a 3DS XL with a copy of Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, will get a choice of one of five games free.

The free titles are Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Art Academy: Lessons for everyone, Freakyforms Deluxe: Your creations alive! and Star Fox 64 3D.

The two real attention-grabbers are of course Star Fox and Mario, which are both equally fantastic games. It makes the 3DS XL a much more tempting offer, that's for sure. Picking up a 3DS XL console with one of the two games will set you back around £190. 

The free game will be made available to download when you register your 3DS XL system and one of the two games. If you haven't played it yet, Super Mario 3D Land is an outstanding platformer and well worth filling the gap between the next 3D Mario title on the Wii U.
