Club Nintendo Update 6/6/13
This is a new regular update that we are starting here at Vivid Gamer, detailing for you the latest updates on Club Nintendo offers and free goodies.
For those of you that don’t know, Club Nintendo is a service that Nintendo offers, somewhat similar in concept to Xbox Rewards. It is free to sign up and become a member, so if you are a Nintendo fan or you plan on buying the Wii U or 3DS sometime soon, this is for you! To go into the basics of how Club N works, you basically buy certain qualified games and hardware such as a Wii U, 3DS, and even Wii’s, then register the item online using your account to gain a certain amount of points for it. Of course to get the points you have to complete a short 5 minute survey and that’s no problem at all. With these points, you can redeem them for cool prizes and offers such as entire games! Every few weeks Nintendo has a few new featured games you can get, be it for Wii, Wii U, or 3DS. I’m sure in the near future there will be another featured game specifically for Wii U Virtual Console (meaning, not having to go to the Wii Menu) and you’ll be the first to know once that happens!
Now for the latest Club news!
