Gaming news site 1up.com was able to chat with Nintendo’s Bill Trinen about the Promotion for eShop that was announced through the Wii U Deluxe bundle. The promotion allows users to earn points for digital purchases through the eShop. You can then use your gained points to receive discounts on future purchases through the eShop. According to Trinen, the only way to take advantage of the promotion is to purchase the Deluxe Wii U bundle.
“Will there be any way to gain access to some of the Deluxe Digital Promotion stuff that’s included in the Deluxe set outside of that? Will there be any way to do that?”
“No, that’s tied directly to the Deluxe set… When you’re purchasing digital content, what that does is it gets you credit back that you can then build up and use to purchase additional digital content. That’s the idea behind the promotion.”
