Since the closure of Nintendo’s “Club Nintendo” rewards program, fans have been eagerly waiting for Nintendo’s replacement service for some time. Well the wait is now over, folks! The switch has been flipped and Nintendo’s new service, “My Nintendo,” is now live and available for gamers to start using. You’ll be surprised how cool this program actually is!
My Nintendo works like a meta game. Players earn coins by completing missions, accomplishing tasks in the Miitomo app, and purchasing games on the Nintendo eShop for the Wii U and 3DS platforms. Coins can be redeemed for special prizes, like full versions of digital games, coupons to purchase games at a discount, special items for Miitomo and themes for your 3DS. Nintendo promises to add new rewards on a normal basis and give players new things to do in My Nintendo. Protip: Click the Super Mario block at the bottom of the page and continue to repeatedly click your Mii character to earn some bonus coins!
Players can easily obtain a free game or item by completing the current account missions and playing Miitomo when it launches later today, so definitely check the service out so you can snatch up something cool. An exclusive game resides in the rewards section, which is The Legend of Zelda Picross, which you can snag for your 3DS too. Head over to my.nintendo.com to sign up, link your existing Nintendo Network ID and all of your social media accounts, and start earning points and rewards today.
