Last month, Club Nintendo offered members download codes for Super Metroid in exchange for 150 Coins. However, starting next week, Nintendo will begin selling the game on the Wii U for 30 cents as part of the Virtual Console Trial Campaign.
Since it’s a bit unfair to those unaware of the Wii U promotion, Nintendo is refunding the 150 Coins to Wii U owning members that purchased the game. As a gesture of good faith, the company is letting those members keep the download code for use on their Wii or Wii U.
Affected members received the following e-mail from Nintendo:
Dear Club Nintendo Member,
Thank you for your recent order of Super Metroid from Club Nintendo. We’re sending this notification to let you know this title will be available from the Nintendo eShop for Wii U for 30 cents, as part of a special promotion starting on May 15.
Because you are a Wii U owner, we have refunded the 150 Coins you redeemed for Super Metroid. You may still use the code you received to download the game for free to play on Wii or Wii U. We hope you enjoy your game, and visit Club Nintendo again soon.
It did seem like a weird decision to make Super Metroid a Club Nintendo game so close to the Trial Campaign promotion, but this seems to be an adequate fix for anyone that may have felt slighted.

There’s a new batch of games to download from Club Nintendo.
The SNES classic Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is the headliner this month, going for 200 Coins. The other games available this month are:
- Maboshi’s Arcade (Wii) – 150 Coins
- 3D Classics: Excitebike (3DS) – 150 Coins
- Art Style: Aquia (3DS) – 100 Coins
All four games will be up until June 2.
Nintendo is releasing a luscious hot pink 3DS XL guaranteed to make Barbie’s Glam Convertible jealous in the U.K. on May 31.
In a separate announcement, the company also unveiled the “So Many Games!” promotion for Europe. By registering any three of the following 3DS games on Club Nintendo before June 30, you can redeem a download code for one of the remaining titles on the list:
- Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate
- Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (Nintendo 3DS Version)
- Luigi’s Mansion 2
- Fire Emblem: Awakening
- LEGO CITY Undercover: The Chase Begins
- Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity
- Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Not content with releasing multiple new handheld colors, Nintendo is now making colored 3DS LL charging cradles available to Japanese Club Nintendo members for 200 Coins a piece.
While it may seem vain having a charging cradle to match your 3DS LL, it’s worth remembering that the handheld didn’t come with a charger and cradle when it launched in Japan.

Club Nintendo is giving people yet another opportunity to get the gold nunchuk.
Just like the last time, and the time before that, the peripheral is being sold for 900 Coins and quantities are limited.
We don’t know if this is the last time the nunchuk will be offered, but we also don’t know if they’re planning on re-releasing it sometime later in the year.No comments
