As you may have already heard, Club Nintendo is shutting down. As a final send-off, Nintendo is offering a number of physical rewards and over a hundred downloadable games that players can redeem with the coins they’ve saved up.
The final set of physical rewards include a number of unique items, including a Force Deity Link jigsaw puzzle, a Majora’s Mask messenger bag, a Mario T-shirt, a 2016 calendar, and multiple poster sets. Interestingly, one of the poster sets was a Platinum prize in 2013. Likewise, one of the downloadable games, Doc Louis’ Punch-Out!!, was a previous Platinum prize.
As an added bonus, Flipnote Studio 3D will be made available for free to all Club Nintendo members later this week. The code will be found in the “To-Do List” on the main Club Nintendo page after logging in.
It should be noted that the physical rewards are in limited supply, so time is of the essence. All of the downloadable games will remain available until June 30th. Coins can be earned until March 31st. Gold and Platinum members will be able to choose a downloadable game for free starting in April.
I’m blown away by the number of prizes offered! Luckily, I had some coins saved up, so I was able to snag the Link puzzle and the Smash poster set. Plus, there are still a couple months left to earn coins, so I may be able to get some games, too. Here’s hoping the Gold and Platinum selection is better than last year.
