New card cases hit Club Nintendo

If you listen to Infendo Radio, you may know that I’m quite keen on Club Nintendo, a rewards program for fans who register their games and systems and take surveys to earn coins that can be redeemed for downloadable games and physical goodies. Today the service saw the addition of new Nintendo 3DS game card cases for 400 coins per “set.” A set includes a card case in the shape and build of a regular Nintendo 3DS game case and three reversible covers to choose from (adding up to 6 different designs). The Zelda set features one cover devoted to Zelda artwork, one to Mario, and one to the 3DS. The Animal Crossing set has a similar 3DS cover and (of course) an Animal Crossing cover with another Mario cover rounding out the collection. Click here for all the details, including images of the new offerings.

A new and very good selection of downloadable games for 3DS and Wii U also graced Club Nintendo, including F-Zero (a Wii U download, originally released on the SNES), 1080° Snowboarding (available in the Wii Shop channel, not the eShop; originally released on the Nintendo 64), Game & Watch: Cement Factory (a 3DS download, originally released for the Game & Watch Tabletop and as a Game & Watch handheld), and Spin Six (a 3DS download, originally released as a DSiWare title).

I’m a 1080° Snowboarding veteran, so allow me to offer my full recommendation of that game right now. In fact, watch for a review to hit Infendo soon. With Club Nintendo adding a new reward and changing up the downloadable games up for grabs, will you be spending your hard-earned coins on anything in the near future?

    In Europe we get colourful 3DS XL docks now.

  2. We got those in the States too, but they sold out within seconds, or so I heard. Are you guys still in stock?

    I ordered two. Club Nintendo’s supply is super unpredictable. RIP XL charging cradle.

  4. Jens says:

    Yup, over 24 hours later we still got ’em. (I don’t have enough stars, otherwise I probably would’ve got one.)

  5. Jens says:

    FYI: they cost 4500 stars. With 250 stars per game, that’s 18 games, so pretty expensive. Of course, a system gives you double and you get some bonusses here and there, but still.

    I saw that the US cradles were 500 points. How many games is that?
