The Wii U eShop is running a promotion where if a user spends $50 or more on their network account, they will receive bonus credits toward a future purchase.

The promotion is only for North American users and will last until 3 a.m. July 29.

If $50 is spent, the user receives $5, and if $100 is spent, the user will get $10.

The redeem code will be sent via the email attached to the Nintendo network account on Aug. 2, according to Polygon.com.

Perhaps the special is to encourage gamers to purchase the Wii U's next up coming titles, "Pikmin 3," "The Wonderful 101," and "Rayman Legends." "Pikmin 3" comes out in the U.S. on Aug. 4.

"Pikmin 3" will launch in the U.K. on July 26, and on July 27 Nintendo will be holding an event in London at the South bank Observation Point to celebrate the release.

The Wii U exclusive is a followup to the first two games on their Gamecube system with the second game released in 2004. The series created by famed Nintendo game creator Shigeru Miyamoto gained a cult following and got another second game for the Wii.

The game is a real-time strategy that engages players by continuously updating and changing scenarios for the player. All the controls and decisions fall into the the person playing the game's hands and depending on what route they take, that is how the game plays.

Pikmin is coming back after a considerably long time for a series, and even skipped over one generation of console, which has its pros and cons. The positive is that Pikmin will now have a new generation of gamers to pull in, with the negative being the franchise may have lost some key people over the length of time.
