Buying games on eShop will give points for other content.
The Digital Deluxe Promotion for the Wii U Deluxe Set was detailed today by Nintendo.
The promotion will let owners earn points for games they buy in the eShop. The points will be approximately 10 percent of a total purchase. So, a game that costs $59.99 will give 599 points.
For every 500 points earned, gamers will get $5 in credit to use in the eShop for Wii U or 3DS. Points can be earned from Nov. 18, 2012 to Dec. 31, 2014, and codes must be redeemed on the Nintendo website by March 31, 2015.
"From day one, we want Wii U owners to experience the full breadth of great downloadable games and content available for the console," said Scott Hoffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "The Deluxe Digital Promotion is our way of encouraging Wii U Deluxe Set owners to explore the Nintendo eShop and discover how Wii U offers an incredible combination of fun, innovation, convenience and value."
Keep in mind that only Deluxe Wii U owners will be able to take advantage of this, not Basic owners.
