Is the arcade closing soon?
Nintendo Badge Arcade was a quirky late addition to the 3DS eShop, capitalizing on the new possibilities of the update which added in themes. The idea of decking out one’s home screen with a series of decorative badges was a strange one, but it could become surprisingly gripping. Though it took a bit longer to arrive in...
Though it may not necessarily be widely used on a daily basis, Nintendo Badge Arcade has been a fun extra on the 3DS. The free-to-download app - with various microtransactions thrown in - offers a chance to win badges through a simple crane game, which can then be used to spruce up the system's HOME page. The pricing on plays and...

The time has finally come for the rest of us; you can get your Blue Bomber-themed badges now, along with various characters such as Protoman, Rush and all your favourite Mega Man villains.

Today Nintendo of Europe revealed that new catchers containing badges from Mario Kart 8 have just been added to Nintendo Badge Arcade
Down the bunny hole
We will try our best not to associate the free-to-start Nintendo Badge Arcade with drug use - even if the first sample is free it's easy to get hooked, and visions of pink rabbits will fill your life more the farther you go into it. The Badge Arcade is perfectly legal, for one, and its pink rabbit will not whisper at you to burn...
Pay for plays
Late last year Nintendo released Collectible Badge Centre in Japan, an app / game for the 3DS that allows you to 'win' badges that you can then pin and arrange on your HOME screen.
