Pokemon X/Y for Free? Maybe!

poka1A leaked Toys R’ Us ad indicates that Nintendo may be bundling its most popular 3DS game.

Thinking about buying a 3DS but not sure if you can gather the scratch for both that and a couple of games? Consider waiting one week until Toys R’ Us starts its March sales cycle. Why? According to a leaked ad from the retailer, Nintendo will be offering free downloads of Pokémon X/Y to anyone who picks up a Nintendo 3DS XL or 2DS and one of the following six games:


  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf
  • Yoshi’s New Island
  • LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
  • Mario Kart 7


Honestly, that’s a pretty damn good list of Nintendo games. If you were planning to buy a 3DS, you likely had one of those games in mind anyway (too bad Zelda’s not on here).




It’s not clear if the Pokémon deal is an exclusive Toys R’ Us thing or if it will be available at other retailers. Stay tuned for more details.
