Once they have this you have the option of having it sent to your console or alternatively have them email you the code and you can redeem it. At the moment there’s Fantasy Life and Smash Bros Wii U and others available to pre-order and presumably you’ll have them sent to your console on the day of release. Quite a handy feature.
