The Digger Dan DX
competition is now closed for new entries. The winner will be announced on the competition
page just as soon as we can work out who has the earliest valid claim! There are two claimants whose entries came in within 47 minutes of each other, we just have to determine if the earlier one is valid. We don't want to be rewarding cheaters!
10th September 2016
We have received two claims for the competition prize so far, the first at 11:13pm on the 9th, and the next at 1:25am today. Don't give up hope, though! As yet, both these claims are unverified so you are still in with a chance of winning. Also, as mentioned below, if you are a Nintendo of America customer who bought Digger Dan after the update was launched, 25 hours will be subtracted from your entry time to negate the delay in getting the game available for sale in your region.
9th September 2016
Digger Dan DX
is now available for purchase on the Nintendo of America eShop. It appeared on there around 25 hours after it went live for updating in American regions and for sale and update in Europe. To make things fair for customers who had to wait 25 hours before they could make a start on the competition
, we have decided that any entries made to the competition for Nintendo of America customers who bought the game on or after September 9th will be treated as having being received 25 hours earlier. Proof will be needed to show that you are a Nintendo of America customer and when you bought the game, but this will be sorted after your claim is received.
It seems that the launch of the 1.1 patch of Digger Dan DX
has not gone as smoothly as we had hoped. Existing customers in North America are able to update their copies of the game but, for unknown reasons, new customers cannot access the game page on the eShop. We are working with Nintendo of America to get this issue resolved as soon as possible.
We are aware that this gives new customers in that region a disadvantage with the competition
and we are currently working out if it will be possible to take the launch delay into account when deciding who is the first to collect all 125 gold stars, so don't despair if you can't buy the game just yet, we'll sort things out so that the competition is fair. Just keep searching on the eShop for 'digger' until the game appears there.
8th September 2016
We are pleased to announce that Digger Dan DX

15th August 2016
Digger Dan DX
has been updated and submitted to Nintendo ready to return to the eShop. As part of the update,
25 challenging bonus levels have been added free of charge. Existing owners will be able to update the game via the eShop to access the new levels.
9th July 2016
Digger Dan DX
was removed from the Nintendo eShop earlier this week after a copyright infringement claim
was raised against it by First Star Software, who own numerous copyrights and trademarks relating to the Boulder Dash games. After some very
amicable discussions with First Star Software, the issues have been resolved and Digger Dan DX will be returning to the Nintendo eShop in the
near future. More information will appear here as soon as we know when it will be on sale again.
