    1. The name of the program is fuc*ing worse than that number.
      I mean… what!?? “My Nintendo” !!??? Really??!!
      Sooooo creative and not confusing! :D … -__-”
      And that other thing is called “Nintendo Account”… Yeah I’m sure no one will get confused. Even I get confused of what’s what… I’m really sure they’ll get 100Mill users.
      UGH…First “Wii” then “WiiU” then “New 3DS” and now these atrocious crap names.
      I might be over exaggerating here but geez… Why didn’t they change it when they had the chance??

      [Also note that both of the names can be used in one segment of a sentence.]
      Example:
      Guy 1 says: “I’m going to check ‘my Nintendo Account’. I’LL be right back.” …
      Guy2 says: “Wait… are going to check my nintendo account?”
      G1: “No, not yours you idiot, mine.”
      G2: “That’s what I said…”
      G1: “No… you said ‘your’ nintendo account”
      G2: “No, I said my nintendo account.”
      G1: “AND THAT’S WHAT I JUST SAID YOU SAID!”
      G2: “But I meant that you where going to check my nintendo account and not my nintendo account.”
      G1: “WHAT?? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!!??…
      G2: “I don’t know… You’re the one saying that you’re going to check my nintendo account…”
      G1: “I’M GOING TO SLIT YOUR THROAT!!”
      G2: “Oh NO! Don’t slit your throat!!”
      G1: “NOT MINE, STUPID! YOURS!”
      g2 “But I thought what’s mine was yours and what’s mine is yours…”
      g1: “You just said the same thing twice!”
      g2: “No because yours is mine and mine is yours meaning whats mine is yours and whats mine is yours…”
      g1 “THAT’S IT!!!… I’M GOING TO KILL MYSELF IF YOU DON’T SHUT UP!!”
      g2: “OH NO! DON’T KILL ME!!”
      g1: “!!!!!!! YOU MOTHER FUCKER !!!!!!!!!!”

        1. You thought it was a good run the last 2 years? You must not have visited the site often- the last 2 to 3 years the Platinum and Gold “Rewards” were digital games, Golds being limited to 5$ NES games after having to spend $300 to reach Gold status, and what few physical rewards there were to choose from were pathetic. Who would waste 500 coins on 6 Animal Crossing postcards that the person receiving them would just toss them after one read?

          The only really good thing to come from the last CN year was me being able to get a download of Star Fox 64 3D after my physical copy got stolen back in 2013. Outside of that, I was extremely disappointed, and many others here would say the same. In fact if you look below, some already have.

              1. The last years haven’t been that good, but I really wanted some of those figurines… (i.e. the Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon figurine)

    1. You’re such a arrogant little prick to expect that. Why don’t people fucking get that it’s just something meant for fun, to loyal fans. THEY WERE NOT FORCED TO GIVE YOU FREE STUFF, and then you only cry and complain about how bad the rewards were. And how you had to spent 300 dolars to get gold status. And even tough you already got 300 dollars worth of games, you still demand more more more!!!!!

      Be happy with the games you got, because I would have loved more games on there. We got VC games, sure. But the newer ones like you all got near the end would have been welcome to.

      People complain about the postcards and how the others throw them away after one read. But you can just keep them as a little collectible? Put them in the back of some figurines or whatever. You all got cool looking posters, also would have loved those. I hope you all realise just how happy you should be they’re even sending you free stuff. Sure, cheap stuff made for even cheaper in china sometimes. But in the end it’s a big part of their profit margins they are giving up, just so whiny bitches like the most of you can cry how “Expensive” it all was. (You’re not paying one extra bit… You got the points with a game. It’s not like you paid any additional fees to get those points right?) Or how shitty they could be sometimes. (Nobody’s forcing you to get them, and again, it’s for free, it’s a service, it’s nothing mandatory!!!!!!!)

        -||I agree with everything except the middle paragraph because the Empire can do so much better than what they’ve done as a whole this generation||-

      2. Exactly. You’re getting gifts for buying video games. I don’t see why people are complaining. Yeah the UK’s Club Nintendi had better rewards but that does mean NA’s was bad. I got myself 3 Smash Bros. poster and Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze FOR FREE. I’m more than happy.

      1. ~*Let the shackles be released!*~ Chains of Lucifer X3 ~*Or fall forever!*~

        And it was less confusing. This new one is going to cause a shitload of confusion down the road with that name. Nintendo has done terribly with names over the last 3-4 years.

    1. Well, I guess the name change is because it’s more than a reward program. It’s “your” personal “Nintendo”, which you can interact with through many differemt platforms (and something something Nintendo Account)!

      1. To add to what you said, in the future you will be able to edit friend relationships and other things too. My Nintendo will be one part of the Nintendo Account. They will add more to the Nintendo Account.

        1. Cloud saves had better be part of it- I won’t even mind if I have to pay a buck or 2 every month to have it, as long as I can re-download Shovel Knight or Mario Kart 8 or Tomodachi Life for free if something happens to my systems.

        1. Oh, yeah, I remember. Now, it’s just a stupid name that doomed the console even more than it was. It’s really interesting to think about how different the console would have done with a new brand…

          1. Not just the name- it had to be marketed better, had killer exclusives out of the gate, more games used the Gamepad more interestingly than just a map…

            Don’t get me wrong, I love the console and games like Splatoon, XCX, Mario Maker, but it could have been so much more.

            1. Totally agree, it was very flawed. Great for Nintendo fans, though (in my opinion). Pikmin 3, WWHD/TPHD, Splatoon, Hyrule Warriors, best Smash, best (or one of the -) Mario Kart, Zelda U later… Just an amazing console in terms of software. I really feel like Nintendo didn’t let me down, even though the console always was doomed…

            2. ~*Let the shackles be released!*~ Chains of Lucifer X3 ~*Or fall forever!*~

              This is why I’m upset the Wii U isn’t selling more than what it is selling. It should be doing a hell of a lot better than this. But sadly, these Nintendolts like mediocrity. Poor slaves to the Evil Overlords at Nintendo.

    1. Yes, it is but the account is also for the future. They expect Wii U, 3DS, and smart device owners to sign up. 100 million is an number that can be reached.

  1. As everyone is saying and hoping, I hope this rewards program is a LOT better than Club Nintendo was. Not to sound like a whiny nag, but us North Americans really got the royal screwjob with their idiotic rewards in those final months/years. The Japan (and even Europe) Club Nintendo always got those drool-worthy CD Soundtracks, awesome Mario Kart trophies, and other cool stuff. The North American Club Nintendo only got a few cool things during it’s run, such as the Game & Watch Ball handheld reproduction, Mr. Game & Watch 1 and 2 on DS, and a couple collectible figurines (which I missed out on).

    1. I like we in Europe get better deal then NoA….. I think you are delussioned mate, we got shit that all we got….. oh yeah we got those shiny trophies where you have to spend £3,000,000 and then get the point to have it. Other than that we barely have any digital game or “reward” (use the term lightly) worth mentioned.

    1. You do, they have a map on the website showing the 39 countries in red.
      Though it might be Soviet invasion plan…

      1. Yeah, I just saw a list. Really happy we’re getting it! Unless it’s the soviets, I’m not happy we’re getting them over here…

        Too bad we won’t get Miitomo at launch, but oh well.

    -||If this new system doesn’t come to the Scandinavian territory then High Command learned nothing||-

    1. |||Nintendo Dark Commander Quadraxis-NX Prime|||

      -||Nervermind, I just looked at the strategic map, Scandinavia is included||-

    1. |||Nintendo Dark Commander Quadraxis-NX Prime|||

      -||Just watch when the NX will be called the Nintendo [Commander], you’ll know who to kneel before||-

      1. If that happens, I’ll run around my neighborhood completely naked and screaming “just as planned” for at least 2 hours.

  3. I feel My Nintendo will be a big hit and the platform will be used for many things like advertisements, latest game info, social interaction, and of course the new reward system. I also see the app having the eshop on which allows you to purchase and view titles from your phone. If Nintendo did this right I see the Club Nintemdo being universal, which means we should all get the same rewards and benefits. We really need a Direct for clarification. Regardless, something to look forward to.

    Sounds like pretty much the same same thing?!!!!! Why did they change it? More importantly why has it taken this long?!!!

    1. Exactly what I’m reading. I would be surprised, but seeing how much we despised Club Nintendo’s rewards, Nintendo might be punishing us for being unappreciative :P

      1. |||Nintendo Dark Commander Quadraxis-NX Prime|||

        -||You two should check the source given by the link and re-evaluate your assumptions||-

        1. I WILL DO NO SU-
          Oh, wait. Heh heh, I see the pic displaying what the “39 countries” are, with NA in bright red.

          Though the areas in gray could be the countries actually getting them, and Not the ones in red…hmm…

              1. |||Nintendo Dark Commander Quadraxis-NX Prime|||

                -||You will find, that I am kind||-

                -||Unlike cruel High Command that demanded that you read||-

                -||All I require, is that you kneel||-

    Let’s hope it’s better than what Club Nintendo was it’s last few years of life. Not just for the US but everyone. A shame My Nintendo is only going to be in a very small number of countries.

      1. ~*Let the shackles be released!*~ Chains of Lucifer X3 ~*Or fall forever!*~

        ~*I hope they don’t take too long. At the end of Club Nintendo’s life, there were still many countries (I think it’s safe to assume it’s many) that didn’t even have it.*~

        1. ~*Let the shackles be released!*~ Chains of Lucifer X3 ~*Or fall forever!*~

          Technically, yes. You were lied to. Schools just need to update some of their books for some of their subjects.
