    Don't want to feel like I'm shitting on Nintendo but the free giveaway theme by Nintendo is a lame Halloween theme that doesn't look very appealing at all.

    The code will expire on October 30, GMT 23:59. It's not on the Theme Shop so there's not even a price for it.​

    Edit: title should be changed to "Nintendo gives away a theme for 2DS/3DS owners".

    For fucks sake, people whine when they don't get free themes, they whine when they do get free themes, can't people just grow up already?

    Well, if they were any good then there wouldn't be people complaining about it. Just because it's free doesn't mean people have to accept it as it is.

    It's like: You got a chick who wants her vajayjay sucked by you but turns out it's infected although it's free of charge so would you still go for it? Obviously not.

    It's not that bad, it has music on the background, and the eyes of the cat moves while you move between the menu items xD

    Is pretty cool that it can be done, is a new thing i didn't expected.

    The theme looks okay, poor choice of colors though. Orange and purple clash badly, if they replaced the purple with something better like maybe a darker shade of orange or dark gray it would look good.

    We in Belgium get difference and for free in the eshop.
    EDIT:
    Apparently, they are only free if you have a code.
    Will clarify tomorrow.

    Wow these look way better!

    I'll see about making a Belgium Nintendo account just to get the Zelda Halloween theme.

    Edit: Too risky of a move because it says that I'd lose everything if I deleted my main Nintendo account from my 2DS.

    Any chance that we will get it over here in Australia? If not, would anyone be kind enough to share one with me? :) thanks.

    Hopefully they'll share those scrambled codes for the themes because that's the only way I see, other than Belgium Nintendo sharing redeemable codes.

    The message itself says those themes will be released on Friday, so chances are they'll appear in other regions tomorrow as well. I'm not sure whether they're paid though; the message doesn't say anything about them being free, so you should probably assume they're not.

    Well, Cookie said they're free so I guess they are and why would he lie about it?

    I'm not saying he is lying, but he may have misinterpreted something? The Facebook message is basically the same as the message when they announce new paid themes.
