Rumors are going around that Club Nintendo points can be used to purchase selected items in Wiiware, DSiware, eShop, and Virtual Console (on Wii). As I was going to Nintendo.com to access my Club Nintendo account, I came to a “Sorry, we are down for some maintenance” message. So the rumor might be true… http://tinycartridge.com confirms my theory.
Ting Cartridge’s website stated…
The initial selection includes the following:
- 3D Classics: Xevious (eShop) for 100 points
- Super Mario Kart (VC) for 100 points
- Fluidity (WiiWare) for 150 points
- Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again! (DSiWare) for 100 points
The games are chosen based on Club Nintendo member feedback, and are replaced with “a new surprise selection each month”. This is an obvious idea that I always assumed Nintendo would never implement because it’s too awesome, but here it is! The only problem is now I’ll never save enough points to get a Game & Watch: Ball.
So let see when Nintendo reveals it!
