Nintendo has today announced details of its special Wii U Deluxe Digital promotion, which lets people who buy the Wii U Deluxe set earn points when they buy downloadable games. The points can then be redeemed on digital content in the Nintendo eShop. All Wii U Deluxe Set owners who buy digital content for Wii U, including downloadable games in the Nintendo eShop and download codes sold at select retailers, can earn points with a value equivalent to around 10% of the Nintendo eShop list price for each purchase. For every 500 points earned, players will get a code worth $5 in credit, which can be redeemed either on Wii U or Nintendo 3DS games. The promotion will last from the Wii U launch date on November 18 until December 31, 2014, although the Deluxe Digital Promotion website wonít launch until December.
