Hella Club Nintendo rewards added ⊟

Winding down its loyalty program, Nintendo has pushed out a bunch of physical rewards for North American members to spend their last points on. Those rewards include Zelda pouches for 3DS XLs, greeting cards (no idea who would want these), poster sets, Club Nintendo exclusive WiiWare game Grill-Off with Ultra Hand!, Animal Crossing mini playing cards, a Majora’s Mask 3D messenger bag, and the awesome game card case.

Nintendo has also put up literally a million digital Wii U and 3DS games*. The Club Nintendo site is getting hammered right now so it’s difficult to get anything to load, but I’ve pasted screenshots of all the game offers after the break.

There’s a Neon Genesis Evangelion theme for 3DS now ⊟

In Japan, of course. And oh man it plays the theme song. I know Eva is an ongoing franchise, but hearing that music time warps me back to the ‘90s, when I watched each episode of this show on VHS tapes that I borrowed from my job at Software Etc.

Also in this video by Nintendaan: previews of several other Japanese 3DS themes for Bike Rider DX, Adventure Bar Story, and more.

Extended splatoon trailer (song) Kinda catchy!

Splatoon Global Testfire returns next Saturday ⊟ 

We’ve been posting quite a bit about this Wii U shooter recently for a good reason: it’s really, really fun! You can see for yourself when Nintendo conducts another demo for the game allowing you to play its 4 vs 4 multiplayer turf war mode next Saturday, May 23 (Splatoon releases May 29).

The demo will last for just an hour, though, from 6PM to 7PM ET (or 3PM to 4PM PT), so make sure you have everything prepared to maximize your time spent with it – you can download the Splatoon Global Testfire software from the Wii U eShop. Credit to Stup-Jam for the beautiful GIF!

Yes, Flipnote Studio 3D is really coming ⊟

Buried within the press release about the end of Club Nintendo was news that Nintendo will give away copies of Flipnote Studio 3D to current members in February. People who made stuff on the DSi will even be able to get their old animations back through the 3DS software!

So, Flipnote Studio 3D… The software, which lets you draw short animations with stereoscopic 3D, was announced for a summer release back in March.

Of 2013.

It came out in Japan, then time passed. The world turned, seasons changed, children grew up. Ice caps melted. The dinosaurs died out.

The software’s Western releases just didn’t happen through all that time, partly because of a ton of traffic on the Japanese side, and probably also because Nintendo got nervous about letting people share drawings after Swapnote’s closure.

And now it’s coming to the eShop in Europe and North America! Probably. Right now, Nintendo has only mentioned the free release for Club Nintendo, but I’m sure it’ll be available as a wider release around the same time.

Go ahead and register a Club Nintendo account now if you haven’t! You have until March 31 to set one up.
