Nintendo of America has announced that those who purchase a Nintendo 3DS XL console between March 21st and April 30th along with either Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity and register them on Club Nintendo, Nintendo will offer you a free game. You will be able to receive a download code for either Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone!, Star Fox 64 3D, Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive!
Nintendo of America has updated the Club Nintendo game offers and now you can use your coins to grab Bird & Beans and Metal Torrent on the Nintendo 3DS. Plus, you can also get Paper Mario and Kirby Super Star on the Nintendo Wii.
Nintendo of America has added the new Yoshi Cleaning Cloth to Club Nintendo. It is polyester material that you can use to wipe down your Wii U GamePad screen or even your 3DS screens. There is a limited quantity and I don’t now if it ever will return once they run out. You can pick one up for 400 coins.
According to someone over on NeoGaf who registered a Nintendo 3DS XL, Club Nintendo stated that this person would not be given coins or a survey because only the first 8 systems you register will be eligible for that. Why Nintendo has this limit I do not know, but I guess it is something to keep in mind.
Nintendo has been stating this to people who register their Nintendo Wii U on Club Nintendo:
Thank you for purchasing and registering the Wii U Deluxe System.
You will receive 160 Coins for completing this short survey.
Comeback in 1 week and share with us your feedback on Nintendo Land. For a limited time only, we are offering a special 50 Coin bonus post-play survey in exchange for Wii U Deluxe Set owners’ feedback on Nintendo Land.
Looks you will be able to get some points for the copy of Nintendo Land that comes packed-in with the Wii U Deluxe Set after all. You will be able to earn 50 coins by doing a post-play survey that will be available 1 week after you register your Wii U system.
It has been revealed that Club Nintendo for the United States will only give you 160 coins for registering your Nintendo Wii U system. This is the same amount of coins as what you would receive from registering a Nintendo 3DS or 3DS XL. Plus, registering the Wii U will not give you a warranty extension on the system.
Nintendo of America is holding a contest for people who purchase a copy of the Nintendo 3DS title Kid Icarus: Uprising. There will be ten winners who will receive over 400 AR cards for this game. All you have to do is purchase the game, register it on Club Nintendo, take the survey and check the last box in the survey to be added in the sweepstakes.
If you have already purchased Kid Icarus: Uprising and registered the game on Club Nintendo a while ago, there should be a Sweepstakes item in your To-Do List on Club Nintendo. You can check out the details for this contest at this link HERE.
Nintendo has revealed that they are going to be giving away limited edition Professor Layton themed luggage tags to people in Europe who register their copy of Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask on Club Nintendo. There are only 5,000 of these tags and they will only be available until supplies last.
Nintendo is inviting select Club Nintendo members to come to New York City and try out the Nintendo Wii U between June 26th-June 30th. Sounds like an awesome invitation if you happen to live by New York City. Nintendo is sending out invitation through email so go check and see if you got invited.
Below you will find a patent that Nintendo filed that shows a different way for tracking in Club Nintendo:
- would do away with registration cards
- codes would be printed on the box
- registrations would be tracked alongside your purchase
- accounts with several duplicate registrations would get you flagged/removed
- retailer would scan code and info would be sent to Nintendo to confirm purchase
- if you return the game, your coins would be removed
- if you spent your coins, you couldn’t return the game
- patent was applied for on Nov. 15, 2010
Maybe Nintendo will start using this in the future some day. Would you like this better than the method that Nintendo uses right now?
