This week's new set of goodies on My Nintendo in North America is designed to promote Flip Wars, which arrived on the Switch eShop in the region last week. Even if that title isn't to everyone's taste, one discount in particular may prove tempting to some.
Below are the 'Battle Inspired' offers on My Nintendo in North America.
- The Wonderful 101 (Wii U) - 30% discount for 70 Gold Points
- Tank Troopers (3DS eShop) - 30% discount for 30 Gold Points
- Smash Controller App (3DS eShop) - 10 Gold Points
- Flip Wars Wallpaper - 50 Platinum Points
- Tank Troopers Wallpaper - 50 Platinum Points
Are any of you North Americans tempted by these rewards?
Garbage and where are my Switch rewards that have been coming soon now for 5 months???
Wow, a real Smash controller app, that's a whole 90p value and something that most people who use My Nintendo probably won't need, yay...
@Spoony_Tech Switch reward probably aren't here yet likely cause they will tie heavily into Switches online service which has not launched
It's nice to see the Smash Controller app is being given away for free now like it should have been in the first place. I mean, seriously, they charged for an app that is useless on its own. The only people who would be downloading and using the thing have already spent hundreds of dollars on a 3DS and Wii U and $60 on a copy of Smash. They couldn't have thrown in that app for free?
@Wolfgabe Then why put coming soon if they won't launch for nearly a year. They can give us something to tie us over. I figured once Splatoon launched we would start seeing some.
Wooooow. I always wanted to get a FREAKIN SMASH CONTROLLER APP using my premium Nintendo rewards points...............
this is awful.
atleast, i can use the 10 gold for that Smash Bros controller. (...yay -_-)
Wasn't the smash controller app free?
@Spoony_Tech they technically have Splatoon 2 rewards in Japan as in exclusive gear
I don't know but it seems each new batch of rewards is like a race to see how low they can get with the program. Might as well cancel it, it is useless piece of crap.
Garbage rewards per usual...
For anyone that doesn't have Tank Troopers, it's pretty great in (offline, argh) MP.
But I do hope that this means that soon smash DLC will be on my nintendo soon, at the very least the mii outfits, anyone who wanted those would have them already so, let some people get some for "free"
These are probably the worst rewards in some time... and that's saying a lot!
This is a new low.
Awful. Just awful.
@thesilverbrick totally agree.
The rewards are terrible but I just thought of something...
If you have the Smash controller app and use your 3DS as your controller, does it give you the option to map movement to the D-Pad? The only reason I ask is because playing as Ryu would be a lot easier. You can accomplish this with the Wii-Remote but you lose out on too many buttons for it to work very well.
how about gold coins for a year of the pokebank?
the gold coins are almost an endless cycle, i can't get rid of them
Still no Switch rewards. LMFAO Nintendo what the hell are you doing?
Rubbish as usual.
830 gold points and counting. In the last year I've spent a grand total of 20 gold coins.Even then it was on 2 starter guides that I don't need or want. What a joke!
You will be missed Club Nintendo. Eh, sort of.
Do you remember when club Nintendo would give you things for your points?
I think Tank Troopers should get polished and ported to Switch. It came out in a time where none of my friends are interested in their 3DS anymore. Its time for Switch things, year one.
My heart skipped a beat when I saw Wonderful 101. hehheh.
W101 is wonderful.
But buy a physical version
At this point either a) "restructure/reassign" whoever is in charge of My Nintendo or b) get rid of it completely. Nothing (itself) would be better than this in my opinion- I honestly can't believe Nintendo actually wastes any resources/manpower on something so disappointing.
@Samus7Killer It can be had for $20 or less in a used game store in the U.S. No reason to buy this in the eShop. The game is admittedly polarizing but I generally enjoyed it.
@Undead_terror Get ready for "The Letter" and "Meme Run" rewards next month.
Awful... just awful.
I miss Club Nintendo.
@-DG No. You cannot map your movement to the D pad. It functions exactly the same as if you were playing Smash Bros for 3DS.
@Muddy_4_Ever Oddly enough, those would actually be rewards I could use (not that I would want to). Everything they offer otherwise is something I already own. It makes no sense to only offer your most loyal customers discounts on games they already own.
Tank Troopers looked fantastic to me, but the lack of online MP for a game like that is ridiculous... Considering picking it up with the discount, but I honestly hope they just take and re-make it for the Switch. Can't imagine it did too well for 3DS, which is a shame with how unique and polished it looks.
To anyone who owns it: worth it solely for the single-player missions? With no MP bots or online play, I know I'm not going to find anyone else in my area to go local with.
They are selling coupons.
Switch rewards pease!
Would be nice if they'd add Switch rewards finally...
@Wolfgabe They need to work out how to discount games for less then 1%.
@Pupito Yeah I remember that too, but back then we were getting actual download codes for our stars/coins, not 20-30% off coupons.
"...one discount in particular may prove tempting to some..."
Probably not, though.
I dont get why we cant get freebies like pokebank extra days, or small dlc like a mii costume in mk8d. Anything compelling. Freakin wallpapers men.....
I would buy Wonderful 101 for 1,01€, but not for 70% of the regular price...
Just a reminder that Club Nintendo died for this.
Sigh. I wonder if the fact they aren't opening the rewards to Switch is a sign. There's still 3ds (for now) but it's only a matter of time before it gets a successor (or quietly fades away).
@thesilverbrick Ah. I figured it wouldn't be possible. I've never played Smash on 3DS so I wasn't sure. It's strange that they have D-Pad controls for Wii-mote only play, but they don't allow you that same option on any other controller.
@-DG That is bizarre. Personally, I prefer a control stick for precision when playing Smash, but I do understand that, given Ryu's traditional Street Fighter inputs, somebody might want to specifically play using a D pad. It's a shame you can't.
Take a good look, European users. While you guys got actual downloadable games this month, we're still dealing with this crap.
Reggie Spirit of All Malevolence has cast MyNintendo into a new circle of hell.
There is no rewards... Those died out at least a year ago.
But I'm not upset. I'm way beyond the grieving process.
Meh....hacking has its perks I guess....
I feel like this is nintendo punishing us for complaining about club nintendo, proving that things can most certainly be worse.
Well, at least the Smash controller app is free now. Sometimes I'll forget my Smash game and/or GameCube controller when going out to tourneys... But that's rare though since I always play Smash and bring a wired controller to a tournament...
At least better than nothing.
"Smash Controller App (3DS eShop) - 10 Gold Points"
......Sometimes Nintendo, ooooohhhhhhh sometimes >:[
I was really hoping some of the Wario Land games would have gotten discounts by now.
@Undead_terror but that would require coins that are not platinum to be spent wisely, and My Nintendo can't let DAT happen!
@Spoony_Tech expired hahaha.
Oh joy...more wallpapers and game discounts for retired consoles.
Hmm, "Tank Troopers" sounds good. I don't know how I missed its review before now. I'll go ahead and grab it (and its wallpaper, since those Platinum Points are easy come, easy expire, anyway).
I was tempted by the Smash app, but then I remembered a second later I have the full 3DS game installed on my SD card.
I wish NintendoLife would just stop reporting on MyNintendo deals so I can actually start forgetting about this terrible service v.v
Just got another mail about some of my coins expireing, not gonna have any left by the time Switch rewards comes around. GG Nintendo.
