The Switch is the new home for everyone’s favourite* smart talking witch, but some of the furniture is getting damaged in the move, it seems. Retail copies of Bayonetta 2 come with the first came bundled as a digital download code, but some of these have been printed incorrectly.
As far as we can tell, this is isolated to North America, as it’s Nintendo of America that have tweeted to say that those affected should reach out to Nintendo support for a replacement.
Included with the purchase of a physical copy of Bayonetta 2 is a download code for Bayonetta 1. A small number of those codes were printed incorrectly. If you are experiencing issues, please visit https://t.co/ZV39F24b8m. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Those affected are saying online that codes beginning with “URPH” are no good, and it’s these that will need replacing.
Thank you for addressing this problem! Apparently if the code has a URPH, it’s no good. pic.twitter.com/Cgf0bV7Y9W
