Club Nintendo Gets Kid Icarus, Yoshi, Some Physical Goodies

It’s time to strut past the velvet rope and see what Club Nintendo has in store for all of its most faithful customers with this month’s batch of physical and digital goodies. From adorable cloth baskets featuring Mario baddies to games featuring bow-and-arrow-wielding angels, get ready for four new games and two new bits of swag in exchange for your beloved Coins.

For those of you who are new to this whole system of exchange, Club Nintendo offers up a way to reward loyal consumers for buying their games and hardware. All you need to do is register for an account at the Club Nintendo site, buy a bunch of Nintendo products like a 3DS or a copy of Zombi U for the Wii U, then register those products.

Each product you register will net you a bunch of imaginary Coins. You can also earn extra coins by taking part in the occasional survey both before and after picking up a Nintendo product. After a while, you’ll notice that you’ve earned yourself a nice little collection of those Nintendo Coins. Now, what could you possibly do with them?

Well, that’s where the rewards program comes into play. Each month, a rotating library of two 3DS games and two Wii U games are made available for a sum of those Coins. There’s also a bunch of physical goods you can get in exchange for even more coins, including game cases, posters, postcards and the like.

This month, two rare physical item updates have been added to the rewards roster, including a cloth “accessory box” for storing, well, accessories, I suppose, and 3DS pouches featuring Animal Crossing designs. The accessory box will set you back a whopping 700 Coins and the pouches will cost 500 Coins a pop.

This month’s games rewards include a pair of old school classics and a pair of smaller titles made for their respective platforms. For the 3DS, you can swipe Kid Icarus of Myths and Monsters for 150 Coins or Number Battle, a sort of puzzler meets RPG battle game, for 200 Coins. You can also grab Yoshi for 200 Coins on the Wii U, or Bonsai Barber for the Wii or Wii U for 250 Coins. You can grab any combination of goodies your little heart desires, provided you have the necessary Coins to do so. These games will be available through April 6, at which point four new titles will take their place.
