Nintendo's Ocarina of Time Soundtrack Offer Ends at Midnight

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

If you'd like a complimentary copy of the soundtrack to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, celebrating the launch of the 3DS revision and the series' 25th anniversary, time to act fast.

One, you need to have purchased a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.

Two, register a Club Nintendo account.

Three, connect your copy of Zelda to said Club Nintendo account before midnight PST.

The soundtrack features 50 tracks, one orchestral melody made for this release, liner notes with character illustrations, and a message from Shigeru Miyamoto and composer Koji Kondo.

After midnight, your cartridge turns into a dodongo!

Posted by MentalDisruption

I want this so bad, but I don't want a 3DS right now. Curse you Nintendo!

Posted by Ezekeilpurger

I wonder how much people are going to spin this for on eBay.

Posted by wolf_blitzer85

Got my soundtrack ordered! Looks like they won't be shipping them until July 14th.

Sure there is.. might not be "legal". but you can get it.

Only available to US and Canada? That really, really sucks. Why?

Great, won't be getting my copy until tomorrow cuz I ordered through Amazon. This kinda sucks...

Posted by SaltyPancakes

I was disappointed Nintendo extended it to midnight and not have a limited number, it just makes the sound track seem less special now.

>implying it won't be up in thirty minutes everywhere after one person downloads it.

cant wait for this to turn into a dodongo!

This is a pretty stupid deal. An extremely time limited offer with little advance warning for a product that's only just come out and that even day one purchases may not have yet? How do they even expect that to move sales? Why not just give digital versions of the songs out to anyone who purchases the game from here on?

Posted by Otrebor

Theres gonna be a torrential amount of demand for this in the near future.

Posted by JokerFrown

Pretty sweet deal. Just registered my copy today. =D

Posted by Flabbergastrate

I can't wait to listen to Dodongos!

Posted by Trebz

Amazon says "Out for Delivery," but it'as already 4:00 PST... Don't fail me this time, delivery man!

Edited by FrederickOggVorbis

If anyone really wants the soundtrack that badly, go to a local video rental store and just open the box and take the club nintendo code out.

I see what you did there! Arrrr!

Posted by paulunga

Man, I already have like 4 different versions of the OoT soundtrack (original and remixes), I don't really need another one.

Posted by BlazingRyuu

Weird! The Club Nintendo website says the offer ends tonight in one spot and that it ends tomorrow in another.

"All members who register the game by 12:01am Pacific Time Tuesday, June 21, 2011 will receive The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Soundtrack CD."

And I'm going to do it to. Wait, forget I said that.

They should just give it out free considering I've already bought Ocarina of Time 3 times already. I'm not gonna buy it again just to get the soundtrack.

Bummer.  Now there's no time.  Thing is--and I know it's weird--but knowing I missed out on the special goodies makes me not want to buy it.
Posted by bbolen82

This isn't the official soundtrack or anything, but it is a free download for anyone that can't register their copy of the game before midnight. Or for anyone that wants it I guess. Some guys have recreated the soundtracks to all the Zelda games.

Well, I registered my copy of the game. How do I get my soundtrack? 
 
EDIT: They've updated the Club Nintendo main page letting us know they'll be emailing us within the week to confirm shipping.

pretty much got me covered for anything zelda related until people start to get creative.

smooth jazz zelda...

Posted by TiE23

Yeah, hurry up and get it, or you'll be forced to torrent it. :P

Posted by Tophat666

Glad I went to the gamestop first thing yesterday morning, I punched in the code & after the small survey BOOM FREE SOUNDTRACK!!!!

As someone who walked to the gamestop to buy this while wearing his Hyrule Shield, I"M SUPER HAPPY ABOUT NOW!

Posted by ProsaCC

Damnit, didn't get a Club Nintendo registration card with my brand new 3DS, what gives?

It doesn't make any sense at all, however there will be inherently higher demand and value for it in the future. Which is something.

FFFFFFUUUUU-

Would be my reaction, if I even had a 3DS, which I don't, so my true reaction is thus: whatevs.

... Not to say that I don't want it, though.

Posted by TruthTellah

Nintendo should consider lengthening this deal for at least 24 more hours.  The amount of problems people have had with getting the soundtrack warrants some extra time to make up for those difficulties and make sure everyone who has already purchased the game gets their soundtrack.

@ProsaCC: Consoles don't come with a card, the SKU number is what you register.

Yeah, it didnt ask me for my region or anything and it seemed weird. I googled the UK site and registered. Shame the 5000 points I had on my old Nintendo VIP account when I was a kid cant be transferred. I have about 2300 now though. :)

You know what, I still don't have a 3DS, but I just went out and got the game and registered it because, honestly, that Soundtrack sounds awesome. Its not like Nintendo games get price drops in a reasonable amount of time.

@Marino: Same with me.
