After today's surprise news of the discontinuation of Club Nintendo, the North American version has had its regular monthly update, but with a bit of a difference. Though coins can only be earned in the region until the end of March, redeeming those coins is possible until the end of June. After a period where the website was down for maintenance, the Club Nintendo rewards page has been updated with a new set of downloadable games, all pegged as available until 30th June.
This batch has the now-standard eight games, with four - as always - across Wii U and Wii and the other half available on the 3DS eShop. It's a Virtual Console lock-out, too.
- Super Mario Bros. 2 — 200 coins (Wii U Virtual Console) and awarded 8/10 in our review
- Excitebike — 200 coins (Wii U Virtual Console) and awarded 7/10 in our review
- Super Metroid — 250 coins (Wii Virtual Console) and awarded 10/10 in our review
- Super Punch-Out!! — 250 coins (Wii Virtual Console) and awarded 8/10 in our review
- Super Mario Land — 150 coins (3DS eShop) and awarded 7/10 in our review
- Donkey Kong — 150 coins (3DS Virtual Console) and awarded 9/10 in our review
- Wario Land II — 200 coins (3DS eShop) and awarded 9/10 in our review
- The Legend of Zelda — 200 coins (3DS Virtual Console) and awarded 8/10 in our review
As mentioned above these are all available until the end of June and you can check them out on the Club Nintendo site. Games listed above for Wii U Virtual Console are only available on the latest home console, while those listed as Wii Virtual Console can only be downloaded from the Wii Shop on the system itself or on the Wii U via the Wii Mode.
At the time of writing the physical rewards are unchanged, and it'll be interesting to see what Nintendo of America delivers in the next few months to tempt regular members to clear their coin balances. A statement on the site promises "dozens of downloadable games and a limited quantity of exclusive reward items" to come in February.
Those are the latest download game options, then, so let us know if you plan to spend any of your coins on these games in the poll and comments section below.
