Nintendo announced today an official release date of January 18 for the 3D Classics version of Kid Icarus. The game will be priced ¥600. See our new screenshot gallery here.
Here's how you can get the game now for free. Nintendo previously announced its "Chotto Mario na Nintendo 3DS Present Campaign" (A Little Mario-like Nintendo 3DS Present Campaign). Anyone who takes part in the campaign will get the game for free.
The campaign involves buying two games and registering them at the Club Nintendo site. In addition to the free copy of Kid Icarus, you'll enter yourself into a drawing for some special Mario themed 3DS systems.
