Free Nintendo Land Download Codes Given by Amazon to Wii U Premium Buyers

Some bundles had missing Nintendo Land copies so Amazon decided to give it away for free

It seems that retailer Amazon mistakenly shipped some copies of the Wii U Premium Pack to customers in the UK without the promised Nintendo Land game. As such, the retailer has now apologized and sent a digital download voucher to anyone who got a Premium bundle from its UK website.

The Nintendo Wii U was released in Europe last week in the form of three different bundles, including a lower-priced Wii U Basic Pack, and two more expensive Premium ones, with either Nintendo Land or ZombiU bundled alongside a 32GB version of the console.

Unfortunately for some UK customers of large online retailer Amazon, some editions of the Wii U Premium Pack didn't have the copy of Nintendo Land which was promised by the store.

Amazon has now confirmed this problem and revealed that an error with its supplier resulted in a small number of Premium units to be shipped without the copy of Nintendo Land.

"It's been brought to our attention that a small number of orders for this item may have been delivered without the advertised game, Nintendo Land, due to supplier error," Amazon said, via VideoGamer.

Amazon is deeply sorry and offered customers its "sincere apologies for any inconvenience."

That's not all, however, as the website decided to offer anyone who purchased a Wii U Premium pack a free code that can be redeemed on the Wii U's eShop for a downloadable version of Nintendo Land.

"In the event that your order was one of the small number missing the game, please use the following code and instructions below, to download the game," it added.

The website apparently can't determine just what shipments had a missing copy of the game, so it decided to effectively give away free copies of Nintendo Land to all of its customers who got the Premium version of the Wii U.

The codes should have already arrived via email to all those who got a Nintendo Wii U Premium pack from Amazon, so check your inbox for a free copy of Nintendo Land.
