The My Nintendo rewards to date have had some high-points, but it's probably fair to say that the loyalty programme is yet to blow the doors off and excite loyal members. Nevertheless, there is a little extra treat on offer in exchange for 200 Platinum Points.
Currently available in Europe (and Japan), with a North American release surely inevitable, is 'My Nintendo Theme 4: Samus'. Prior to this the series has featured Mario, Donkey Kong and Link, and like its predecessors it's a minimal and rather simplistic HOME Theme. NintenDaan has captured it in video, too.
It's a nice little extra if you have some Platinum Points burning a hole in your virtual pocket. Let us know if you're planning to grab this reward for your 3DS.
While I liked the look of the Link theme the music was horrible. I hope this one is better.
sans game, this is your metroid anniversary celebration right heeyah.
@countzero Sadly, this theme has the same music. The theme looks good, but I think they should have changed the music.
Donkey Kong theme has also returned. It's time to get it!
It's a bit pity that every My Nintendo theme has the same music, which isn't special in my opinion, oh well.
@YouSeemFRAZZLED Who is this Samus character? if you are talking about the character above well that's Metroid, he is a cool robot! we dunno if he can crawl or not.
I'll get it when its released for the US. I can't believe we've only gotten one other Metroid theme up to this point.
@YouSeemFRAZZLED Ah that guy from the pinball game.How could I forget?
I will when I comes to North America.
Picked it up because I love Samus, I love the Metroid series and I have more points than i know what to do with. Seriously, when are they going to add more downloadable games to the list? There hasn't been anything in ages.
I like the music, it just doesn't fit the theme.
Finally something to spend my coins on
What's the deal with the music? Couldn't put in some actual Metroid music? This sounds like an unused eShop theme or something.
I only had the Link theme, so I picked the other three this morning, woo hoo! The music is fine but REALLY doesn't suit any of the themes, it's a bit jarring actually, but I like rewards like this.
They should give us more games. I have coins and nothing to get with them.
@belmont Same here. They even deleted some discounts for games in spite of knowing that one need some time to earn some gold points...
Got the Link one yesterday.
As I'm all about Wii u and don't have a 3ds this isn't any threat to my massive pointless collection of coins.....😭
Nice! Got it and the other ones on random cycle on my 3DS.
Need Kirby next.
Ugh, Other M artwork.
Won't look a gift-horse in the mouth, though. Redeeming it right now.
And the music only fits the DK theme, for sure.
Definitely getting this
I'll get it if it comes to NA, never enough Samus on current Nintendo systems.
Would love it if NX had custom themes.
Haven't used my points for anything yet, good place to start I guess.
I really can't appreciate a theme that just plasters a render from a previous game on top of a stock color-coded layout, there's just no flair to it compared to the themes I've already paid though.
Nintendo doesn't even care to put specific music for each theme! How lazy are they?! (I have no interest in getting this as I already have a zillion Pokemon themes and don't need any more.)
Speaking of "orange themes", was it ever revealed why those free orange/purple/etc. themes were removed from the Theme Shop in Europe/Australia?
Is that really the music they chose for this? Wtf, where's my actual Metroid music?
I was hoping for some nice classic Metroid Music.
This Theme feels so out of place
Most of the members here will have their platinum coins expire.
I'm just sad my gold ones will go too
All my points will expire... Im still waiting for the donate button. Why we cant donate the points? I would live to send them "awaaaaay" ..
Lol "high-points". Thanks Nintendo Life, I needed a laugh today.
Instant miss. I personally can't stand the music. I wasted coins on the Zelda theme which I only used for a day or so. If I have to have the volume off to enjoy a theme, it isn't worth it.
Too bad the music sucks butt. I got the Link one, and was instantly wishing I hadn't. The best theme I have found so far is the Shovel Knight campfire theme. I REALLY want to get the Pokemon red and blue themes that came with the 20th Anniversary edition system, but alas, I cannot find a code anywhere!
You get a free theme, they're not going to put much effort into it.
Nintendo logic.... XD
@J-Manix98 Oh, man, seriously? That's a shame, I love MyNintendo Theme music, it is very catchy, but I hope Nintendo will add more tracks in the future.
Guys at Yacht Club know how to make a good 3DS theme, I have promo one and it is the best next to Steamworld Heist promo theme.
And I am jealous of you people, since there is no Miitomo in Poland, I really lack silver coins.
Good! Still, why nintendo is so "SLOW" on release new my nintendo rewards. Crap discounts, only nintendo digital games. So much wasted oportunities. Were are the NDS games, why not put Donkey Kong S.E.? My birthday is coming so, few days ago i received a discount coupon. Wish, i really apreciate, but is worthless because i have all of the discounted games physical. Why not discount for atleast all nintendo products? Hmm, i feel better! Nice day to all!
Samus doesn't get no respect! No respect at all!
The music of those themes is absolute garbage. And unfortunately, there isn't a way to just mute the music unless you simply mute the 3DS. That's unquestionably my biggest irritation.
Europe needs new my Nintendo rewards. We have nothing to get other than outfits for miitomo.
♫ Do-ba-di-do-pi-do-do-pi-do-♫-DIE-ALIEN-SCUM-♫-do-ba-di-doop-shap-ba-di-dap-buh-di-ba-di-dum-＊tch＊! ♫
1. Music doesn't too
2. I hate the "My Nintendo" logo in the bottom screen
Ain't getting it unless they get rid of the My Nintendo logo
Just listen to that music. That's hideous. I wish they allowed you to mute background music in themes, it would give me a reason to use them.
Some discounts for games I don't already own would be nice. Especially since I buy my games digitally the service should be able to "see" I don't need 15% off Kid Icarus Uprising. Or Mario Party Island Tour. Or a free download for Wario Land 3. I would buy Triforce Heroes at a discount since I want to play it through solo and the full retail price isn't worth the price of admission solo from what I hear.
And here I thought the music was just for Donkey Kong, but its for every theme. Could it have killed them to get music for each theme?
So much platinum coins, it's sure I'll take it!!!
Coins I can suddenly spend some of. Sure I'll grab it.
I have over 2,000 platinum coins. I think I can easily blow 200 for this. But man, they need to start expanding the platinum rewards a bit.
@Undead_terror you must be kidding..
Metroid is the name of the game, the character's name is Samus Aran. Kids..
That music is hilarious, but man I'll take it when it hits NA. Part of the appeal of these themes is the solid color on the bottom, in colors previously not available (green especially).
@Ikramali yes there's nothing to use the points. Mynintendo is really bad.
@dvdmorar What? that's like saying Zelda isn't the hero of time and wears green, that Star Fox isn't the Fox guy that is the leader of the group who rides arwings.
In other words, I don't think you know what a sarcasm jokes are : P at least this "kid" knows!
@Undead_terror I knew there would be 1 or 2 that didn't get it,there's always 1 or 2 haha
I like that you can at least get themes for free even though I keep going back to my Hanafuda theme.
Do these themes have custom music, or are they like those boring Nintendo Badge Arcade ones that don't?
This one actually looks good
is the music it plays identical to the other my nintendo themes?
@JaxonH This is now live on the NA My Nintendo Rewards site!
Edit: And now it's delisted...sigh.
I love how NoA was garbage with Club Nintendo and it's still garbage now.
The Music only matches the Mario and DK themes and is weird on the other ones lol.
The music ruins it for me.
Another disgusting failure from Reggie. He's addicted to disappointing NOA's market.
