Nintendo Life readers may remember the Game and Watch Collection which made the rounds on the Japanese Club Nintendo and then the newly opened American Club last year. Well, now at long last it's available to European Club Nintendo members!
Game and Watch Collection was reviewed by Nintendo Life a while back and we didn't think it was too bad. There are only three games on the collection but all three (Oil Panic, Donkey Kong, Green House) are currently not part of the DSiWare Game and Watch releases. Therefore, seeing as it's only available through the Stars Catalogue, this is likely to become a collectible over time, though 5000 Stars may be a bit much to ask...
The other big new addition is the Animal Crossing CD, which includes the results of the K.K. song vote from the summer. With a total of 39 tracks, 24 of which were voted for by European citizens, this is another collector's item well worth consideration. It's currently up for 3000 Stars.
Interested? Head on over to the Stars Catalogue to grab some of these goodies before they all run out!
That's nice stuff. I cannot recall how many stars I have, but I think it'll take a few more Nintendo releases before I can get anything like that. I do wish we could get stars for non-Nintendo disc releases -- I'd clean up!
I sure wish the US Club Nintendo would update. We have had one update since it's launch and that only had one new item. I would love to own that Animal Crossing soundtrack. This is just pathetic...........
The Game & Watch Collection is quite nice, but I swapped all my stars for nintendo points.
I've got enough for the CD, but I think I'll just wait a few months until I've got 5000 for Game & Watch Collection. The Mario Galaxy soundtrack has been in stock (in the Netherlands, at least) for over a year, so I think you've got plenty of time to get either!
Yeah, Now I can't get the G&W games, but I'd love to get them eventually...
What happened with the G&W Gallery games? There were 3 for GB and 1 for GBA but none for DS. I really liked those collections and the DS is perfect for a next game in the series...
Club nintendo america needs new rewards more than you guys do! We've had 2 new rewards since it launched last december.
Needs more Tingle's Balloon Fight DS. The G&W Collections are far too overpriced for what they offer. Much better deal getting the collections for the Gameboy systems.
NA needs soundtracks...
/me needs soundtracks...
Another thing that would be nice is posters. I believe North America had a Zelda poster once, and I don't think there's a single poster on our service. We get junk like Mii wallpapers for phones instead.
i hope some of the soundtracks make it over to the NA Club Nintendo.
I actually would want that Wii towel. The game and watch collection would be awesome also.
UK is so freakin' lucky.
5000 stars. One Wii game gives you 250 stars, DS games only 200. Third party games don't count. Stars expire after one year. Good luck.
NOA really needs to start getting their act together...
we need new stuff, the only new item we got was the Zelda posters, and as much as i want it, i REALLY want something that i can...you know....hold in my hands
Great. The NOE Club Nintendo is officially better than the NOA Club Nintendo. Makes me feel so special sitting here in the US.
U haz Obama. Cheer up.
Stars = Points for me, but them prizes look nice.
Us swedes get none of this stuff. We still get starpoints, but we can´t use ´em
I NEED that soundtrack!
This is the first I heard of NOE's rewards programme. I've been looking at all the items on that site, and they are pretty sweet. Oh, wait- did I type programme? Maybe I browsed through there for too long....
I wonder if the Australian has tyhe same crappy catalog as before .
If Club Nintedo Australia is failing then its because of the lame catalog .
I'd buy it just for Go K.K. Rider!
damn eu and nintendo liking your club more i am so jealous
No way - Stars for points makes the EU club the best. Who cares about other prizes? (Unless you live in an unsupported country, that sucks then).
Hmm, that Zelda towel looks kinda interesting.
My points are starting to rot due to the shortage of things on our shop....
At least one good thing for us is that the Game and Watch Collection is only 2500 points.
I just trade mine for Nintendo points, 4000-something gives you 1000 points I think it is.
Right there with you ryanknight717...They asked in a survey what we wanted inside the shop for NA. I told them I wanted variety of quality items. I have a DSi, What am I going to use a stylus set for DS lite for?
Stars expire after one year.
Huh? I was aware it was 24 months and the registration codes for games expire after 3 and half years. So what you do is not register anything (maybe make an exception for stars bonus eligible games) until there is something you like.
I have about 5000 stars on the account and probably 5000 unregistered. If expiry comes up depending on amount I have I'll throw them on something in the shop (points being a last resort for me).
If you say 5 stars = 1 coin (Wii game gets 250 stars in EU and 50 coins in America) then the Game and Watch collection is 1000 coins.
@jangonov Hmm. In the same survey, I just put, "Everything Club Nintendo of Europe has".
