Club Nintendo Gold and Platinum Rewards fail to please

See also

Remember when Club Nintendo Gold and Platinum rewards were tangible items that were shipped to the doorstep of Nintendo's valued customers? Yeah, those were the days...as in, just last year. Club Nintendo seems to have changed things up this year with the rewards for those who ranked in to Gold and Platinum status and decided to offer digital titles.

Out of the available games to choose from, Gold and Platinum members get one game of choice from the following titles:

  • Ice Climber (Wii U)
  • Kid Icarus (Wii U)
  • Super Mario Bros. (Wii U)
  • Zelda II: The Adventures of Link (Wii U)
  • Donkey Kong 3 (3DS)
  • Wario Land 2 (3DS)
  • Metroid (3DS)
  • Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (3DS)

While both Gold and Platinum members get one game to choose from, Platinum members have a wider selection. Besides being able to pick from the titles above, their selection also includes these exclusive games of choice:

  • Game & Wario (Wii U)
  • NES Remix (Wii U)
  • EarthBound (Wii U)
  • Dr. Luigi (Wii U)
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D (3DS)
  • Fluidity: Spin Cycle (3DS)
  • Dillon's Rolling Western (3DS)
  • Mario & Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move (3DS)

We've seen digital titles offered in the past, however the rewards also included some tangible items, like the Mario hat, buttons, and whatnot. Pus, what happened to the calendar that they offered annually?

It is quite unfortunate that there is nothing else offered as a variety to appeal to the collectors, as well, other than the games. Here's hoping next year is better.

In other news, Japan's Club Nintendo is offering a cute Yoshi plush to purchase with accumulated coins. There is also some cute decorative tape to redeem, as well. These can be seen HERE.

To rank into these statuses, members must accumulate 300 points for Gold and 600 for Platinum from July 1st through June 30th. Will this year's disappointment bring better prizes next year?
