Club Nintendo To Be Discontinued

nintendoSadly the Club Nintendo rewards program is being shuttered and anything released later than January 20, 2015 will not be eligible to be registered on the site, which includes the New 3DS for North America. Also, all codes must be entered by March 31 and Club Nintendo will be shutting down at the end of June with code redemptions from the rewards program expiring at the end of July.

Dear Club Nintendo Members,

Thank you for your continued loyalty to Nintendo.

We launched Club Nintendo 6 years ago in North America, and we’re grateful for all of the feedback that our members have provided on your experiences with our products.

In order to focus on planning for a new customer loyalty program for our fans, we’ve decided to wind-down the Club Nintendo program. We are deeply thankful to our members for being a part of Club Nintendo for all of these years.

We will share details about our new program at a later date. For now, please see the schedule below for information on the discontinuation timeframe for Club Nintendo.

All Coins will be deleted when Club Nintendo accounts are closed on July 1, 2015. As a result, to give our members the best opportunity to use their Coins, we will add dozens of downloadable games and a limited quantity of exclusive reward items to the rewards catalog in February. In addition, as a small token of appreciation for your loyalty, all Club Nintendo members will receive a free download code for Flipnote Studio 3D in February 2015. Please visit here for information on the software and how to get the download code.

Majora’s Mask New 3DS Sells Out [UPDATE]


The New Majora’s Mask 3DS is selling like hotcakes! There are reports that GameStop stores across the States is selling out of this limited edition 3DS. There has not been word on Amazon, Best Buy or other retailers carrying it or if GameStop will receive more stock in the near future.

Best Buy is now carrying the Majora’s Mask 3DS system for pre-order. I wouldn’t be surprised if it flies off shelves like it did with Game Stop.
