Download Code Is Lost or Missing

Situation:

A software download code is missing (never received, lost, stolen, etc).

What to Do:

How Did You Purchase the Download Code?


  • Check the back of your Nintendo eShop Card for a scratch-off code area. Some cards sold through retailers do not have a scratch-off code on the card itself – the code is only printed on the receipt you received when you made the purchase.

Does Your Card Have a Scratch-Off Area on the Back?

  • If you purchased a download code directly from a retailer, your code was printed on your purchase receipt. If the receipt with your code has been lost or misplaced, click here.
