Nintendo recently told me that we will get a bunch of download codes for Colors! 3D about a week before its upcoming eShop release. Most of these will be give to magazines for reviews and stuff (please write me an e-mail if you are press and want a review copy!). But we also decided to keep five of them for a little giveaway.
So this is your chance to get Colors! 3D before everyone else. Everyone can participate, and frequent gallery users will get some extra love. The competition will run between February 25 and March 3. Early access codes will be given to each one of the following:
• Most Popular Painting – Given to painting with the most likes in the gallery on March 3 (uploaded between Feb 24 and March 2).
• The Luckiest Painting – Given to a random painting uploaded between Feb 25 and March 3.
• Jury’s Favorite Painting – Given to my personal favorite painting uploaded between Feb 25 and March 3.
• A Colors! Facebook Friend – Given to a random Facebook user who likes Colors!
• A Colors! Twitter Friend – Given to a random Twitter follower of @colors_3d
Each one of these will receive a Colors! 3D code that can be redeemed in the Nintendo 3DS eShop. The code will be made available as soon as we get it, which might be different for the American territories and Europe/Australia. They should be available around a week before Colors! 3D is publicly available in the eShop. The winners will be announced on Facebook, Twitter and this blog after the ending of the competition (probably on March 4).
Colors! 3D is coming out soon for Nintendo 3DS eShop and will cost $6.99. No release-date is set yet, and while my guesses have been proved to be wildly off, I’m pretty sure that I’m not getting away without giving you a new guess: 2-4 weeks.
