Some surprising news came out of Nintendo today as they announced that they will be discontinuing their loyalty program, Club Nintendo, in the coming months.
Nintendo states that any games released beyond January 20th, 2015 will not be eligible for it’s Club Nintendo program and March 31st will be the last day you can earn coins on your account from redeeming codes & completing surveys. This of course means that you will be unable to register your shiny ‘New Nintendo 3DS XL,’ The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS & Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate when they are released on February 13th, 2015.
There is a little bit of good news though for current Club Nintendo members. Anyone who has an active account starting February 1st will be eligible for a free copy of Flipnote Studio 3D. Also, Nintendo plans to release “a limited quantity of exclusive reward items” throughout the next couple months; This will vary from digital and physical rewards.
Finally, Nintendo will fully shut down Club Nintendo come July 1st, 2015. This means any coins, digital codes and registered product will be deleted by then. Make sure you head on over to Club.Nintendo.com to register your products soon before it is too late!
