The Club Nintendo replacement, My Nintendo, is set to kick off next month in 39 countries. Nintendo’s first goal for the program is to reach at least 100 million registrants. Some of the features that My Nintendo will offer from the get-go include a points program, coupons for downloads, emails, digital contents and more. Platinum Points can be used to redeem original goods, while Gold Points can be exchanged for coupons.
We found out earlier today during the Nintendo investors meeting that Club Nintendo is being rebranded and will be called My Nintendo. The service will allow you to collect points while playing video games whether they be on your mobile or your Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. The service links up with your Nintendo Account. You can then use the points that you have accumulated on various things including software titles online, DLC, and presumably merchandise. You will also be able to use your My Nintendo account at the Nintendo theme park, as well as theaters and stores. Here’s what we know so far in tweet form.
Nintendo has today confirmed that the long-awaited replacement for Club Nintendo will strangely be titled My Nintendo. It was previously thought it was named a “Nintendo Account” (that’s what the Wall Street Journal live blogged) but it seems that is the replacement for Nintendo Network ID and My Nintendo is the replacement for Club Nintendo. Guess we shall hear more details regarding the service, and when it opens shop, in the near future.
The European Club Nintendo closes its virtual doors tomorrow, September 30th, so today will be the last chance for you to redeem your stars before they disappear. If you haven’t already linked your Nintendo ID with your Club Nintendo account, if you do so now you will gain an extra 750 stars – which will help if you’re just a few stars short for a particular item. You can redeem your stars over on the Nintendo website under the Club Nintendo section here. Now all that’s left to do is to see what the new membership programme will entail!
YouTuber Tilmen from Nintendomination has managed to get his hands on the highly sought after Goodbye Club Nintendo Coin. The item is the last goodie that will be available on Club Nintendo Europe before it closes its doors and a new service emerges from its ashes. You can watch the beautiful unboxing video, below.
Lucky Tilmen was able to get hold of the Club Nintendo Sound Collection gift with his remaining Club Nintendo credits. The item is probably the last reward we will get on the European version of Club Nintendo before it is replaced with something new entirely. The Club Nintendo Sound Collection is still available on the service and costs 3000 Stars.
Club Nintendo Europe keeps on giving as there’s a new reward available on the service which is due to close shortly. Nintendo fans can now pick up a Club Nintendo Goodbye Coin which will set you back 2000 Stars. This could well be the final gift added to the service before it gets a complete revamp.
