UK retailer GAME begins flogging eShop download codes in-store and online
| GAME news

Do you own a Nintendo 3DS? Do you download content from Ninty's increasingly popular digital eShop?

If you answered 'yes' to both of the above questions, you'll probably be pleased to read that UK retailer GAME is now flogging Nintendo eShop download codes via its many high street stores and on its website.

"We're really excited about this partnership with Nintendo, as it makes it so much easier for gamers to access Nintendo digital content, not just in the UK but across Europe," Charlotte Knight, GAME's category director, said.

"We're thrilled to be able to offer brand-new Nintendo Wii U and 3DS releases as digital downloads from day one of release, and that starts today with Fire Emblem: Awakening on 3DS."

Rewards aplenty

If you buy a code in-store, you'll receive it on your till receipt. If you buy a code from the comfort of your own home, instead, you'll find it in your email inbox.

Buy an eShop download code from GAME, and you'll also receive some GAME Rewards points, which enable you to buy additional codes or any physical software you fancy at a discounted price.

Plus, for a limited time only, you'll receive 25 percent extra trade-in credit if you head into a GAME store and swap some of your old games for eShop codes.

Everyone's a winner.
