I'm sure that if it'll count for The Netherlands, I'll be notified as soon as possible.
I mean, I got their Press Mail about the Event Pokémon, a lot earlier than Club Nintendo members got them (I got it Friday, while Club Nintendo got it today, and since I get mail from both of them, I'm notified twice).
Don't forget about the fact Nintendo is working on Skyward Sword and Ocarina of Time 3D.
While Zelda is serious business, Mario is more of a "fun factor", so they had enough time to give Mario a Party.
I got a Press Mail earlier today, but that was about the Japanese launch of the 3DS, so no Zelda. (～―～)
