Shin Megami Tensei IV and Fire Emblem: Awakening Band Together for Club Nintendo Promo

Registering games on Club Nintendo is a fun reward system for picking out some cool collectibles just by being a loyal Nintendo customer, but if you aren’t one for cluttering your home with a lot of fairly useless bobbles and trinkets there isn’t a whole lot of value in the program. Nintendo and Atlus have joined forces to change that with a “first-of-its-kind” promo deal once again uniting the Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem franchises in an epic gaming alliance.

In the U.S. and Canada, gamers who buy Nintendo 3DS RPGs Shin Megami Tensei IV, available July 16th in a first-print limited edition, and Fire Emblem: Awakening, released earlier this year to rave reviews, and register both titles with their Club Nintendo account (and complete the usual survey) by August 31st will receive a credit of $30 to put toward future purchases on the Nintendo eShop. Other games. DLC. Whatever.

Pretty sweet deal, huh? And I imagine this is only the first of many cross-franchise promotions to come as Nintendo and Atlus continue working together on the Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem crossover RPG for Wii U. Hopefully we’ll be hearing more details about that game soon.
