The End Is Nigh For Club Nintendo

Untitled

 

 

Nintendo has issued a statement that they will be ending the long running Club Nintendo program this year.  Giving no specific reason as to why they are cancelling the program, Nintendo has stated in a statement issued to Club Nintendo members that this year will be the last for Club Nintendo, to be replaced by a different program sometime in the future.  For existing Club Nintendo members, there are some things to know about your present and future coins:

A) No game or console released after 1/20/2015 will be viable to be registered on Club Nintendo

B) No game or console can be registered with Club Nintendo after 3/31/2015

C) All Coins and accounts will be deleted at 11:59 PM PT 6/30/2015

To make the most out of existing coins, Nintendo has stated that in February they will be adding “dozens of downloadable games and a limited quantity of exclusive reward items” to the catalog in February.  Also, all Club Nintendo members will receive a free copy of Flip Note Studio 3D in February.
