Get 3D Classics: Kid Icarus with an Uprising pre-order in North America
European and Japanese gamers who registered two select Nintendo games with Club Nintendo recently were rewarded with a free download of the 3D Classics version of the original NES Kid Icarus. US fans were, unfortunately, left out.
Today Nintendo of America announced their own plans to give out free copies of the game. People who pre-order the upcoming sequel, Kid Icarus: Uprising, from "select retailers" will receive a download code for 3D Classics: Kid Icarus at purchase.
On top of the obvious new 3D effect, 3D Classics: Kid Icarus also adds new, surprisingly non-NES-style backgrounds to prevent ghosting. (Anyone who has played Ocarina of Time 3D will tell you that 3D effects don't work well against on black backgrounds.)
There's still no announcement concerning if and when 3D Classics: Kid Icarus will be released for sale on the eShop in North America, but you can probably count on it happening eventually. Kid Icarus: Uprising launches in North America March 23rd.
