    My giveaway was a bust, and I was going to post this after it anyways...
    so I may as well detail how I got the code.

    You need a My Nintendo account and a Wii U to use this. A 3DS is not required for it, though, well, you can't use the game without it, only get the download code.
    This is only tested in US.

    - Go to this page. Download the game in the link. The game is currently free, and it used to be $24.99. This part requires a Wii U. But it's an extra freebie! Cool!

    - After you download it, go to my.nintendo.com. You will have 30 Gold Points for use - from downloading a game that was $24.99.

    - Go to Rewards and choose Metroid 2. It costs 30 Gold Points to redeem. Use it and you will get a code for the game!

    - Enjoy your free game(s)!

    That rare moment when I got a game for free on my 3DS and it wasn't through freeShop. Tonight's a good night.

    Thanks OP! I wonder if we should redeem the coins now in case Nintendo decides to delete them from our accounts?
