It’s only fitting that the last set of rewards before Club Nintendo’s shutdown be insanely better for Japan than every other region. After all, they’ve always gotten the best stuff.

In addition to a bunch of Virtual Console games, members can get some exclusive shirts, 3DS themes, game soundtracks and accessories.

Club Nintendo Super Smash Bros. Soundtrack Now Shipping

February 24th, 2015 | Category: Uncategorized

Super Smash Bros 3DS Wii U OST

The Club Nintendo-exclusive Super Smash Bros. soundtrack isn’t supposed to come out until March, but club members are already starting to receive e-mails letting them know the CDs have shipped.

The two CD set was originally offered late last year to Club Nintendo members that registered both the 3DS and Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. The registration period for the offer has already passed, so you’re pretty much out of luck if you wanted one.

Rodea the Sky Soldier Pre-Orders Open on Amazon [Update]

February 23rd, 2015 | Category: Uncategorized

Rodea the Sky Soldier NA Wii U Box

[Update: The listings for both versions of the game appears to have been taken down. No reason has been given.]

It’s been a long time coming, but the Wii U and 3DS versions of Rodea the Sky Soldier are finally available for pre-order on Amazon.

Yuji Naka first announced Rodea for the Wii and the then-unreleased 3DS back in 2010. Since then, the aerial action game has gone through very tumultuous development cycle, with publisher Kadokawa Games seemingly holding off publishing the completed Wii version only to announce that they’ve moved the title to the Wii U.

NIS America will handle publishing duties in North America and Europe, where the game will launch this fall.

eShop Thursday: “Don’t Forget Kirby” Edition

February 19th, 2015 | Category: Uncategorized

Hi Kirby

It kind of feels like the New 3DS launch stole a lot of the thunder from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, but that doesn’t change the fact that Kirby’s latest adventure unlocks tomorrow in the Wii U eShop!

Yesterday, Pokémon Shuffle came out in the 3DS eShop. The puzzle game seems to be getting some mostly positive reviews, except when it comes to its mobile-style free to play with microtransactions model.
