According to Nintendo, consumers who purchase the Wii U Deluxe Set will be enrolled in the Deluxe Digital Promotion, which lets Wii U owners receive points for each digital download and redeem those points for future downloadable content from the Nintendo eShop. Nintendo product manager Bill Trinen has confirmed there is no other way to enroll in the promotion as it is tied to the Wii U Deluxe Set. Note, however, the promotion is currently planned through 2014.
Will there be any way to gain access to some of the Deluxe Digital Promotion stuff that’s included in the Deluxe set outside of that? Will there be any way to do that?
“No, that’s tied directly to the Deluxe set… When you’re purchasing digital content, what that does is it gets you credit back that you can then build up and use to purchase additional digital content. That’s the idea behind the promotion.”
