Nintendo is keen to get more people interested in downloading titles on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, and it is following up the Club Nintendo promotion for New Super Mario Bros. 2 with yet another special offer. From now until January 6, 2013, players who download and register select titles from the eShop will receive a downloadable code for Donkey Kong: Original Edition. The game is a special version which shall apparently include content never seen outside of Japan. Exciting! However, Nintendo indicates that it may take 3-4 weeks to email you the download code. What’s up with that?

The eligible games that will net you the free Donkey Kong when downloaded are Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Style Savvy: Trendsetters, Crosswords Plus, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!, and Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.
