Nintendo’s phone service is swamped by people calling in to get their bonus CD. I can understand everyone’s frustration, which is why we are here to help. The windows for the soundtrack should appear after completing the registration survey for the game. You just have to follow the prompts as they come up, and eventually the same shipment screen that appears when you order merchandise with your points should come up. This happens with some, and not with others.
I bought the game at 10:00 a.m. EST, and had it registered before the first half hour. I did this as a sure way to get the CD, since it appears that Europe has already given away their 2,000 copies. That’s right. It appears as though the slots for the free soundtrack for those of you who live in Europe has already been filled. Which means if you want the CD, it’s first come, first serve.
There are tons of people registering their games at once, so their system is having problems keeping up. If the prompt asking if you would like the bonus CD doesn’t appear, try calling Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700. Be aware that the lines are busy, so you might have to sit and keep trying for a couple of minutes to get through.
You’ll know you’ve gotten through when the system provides options in the beginning of the message. Choose the option 3DS, and you will have to wait again for a person to pick up. Stay on the line, and explain your situation and they should be able to help. They will ask for your email address for your Club Nintendo account and name. Be sure to have your registration code for your game at the ready as well. They should call within a few days to confirm the shipment.
