    Alright, we all know that Mario Kart 8 currently offers a free download code for one of 4 games in the US when you get it and register it on Club Nintendo before July 31.

    Do I actually need a Wii-U to take advantage of this right now? You see, I plan to get a Wii-U sometime this year, I just have no idea when yet. This is a deal I feel I can't pass up. Must I have a Wii-U registered on my Club Nintendo account to register Mario Kart 8 and get my download code of choice for later?

    In addition, do these download codes have expiration dates themselves? I know the promotion ends July 31, but I haven't seen anything about the code itself expiring.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light on things.

    Yes and no. You could register the game, however the code needs to be activated before the end of Juli I believe (don't know the exact date)

    EDIT from Nintendo's website: The download code should be activated before 31 August 23:59 CEST

    Alright, thanks. I'll just hold off and hope something like this comes up around Smash Bros U release time.
