Every year in July, Nintendo gives us all a free virtual or physical item free of “charge”, if you meet the elite levels of Gold or Platinum by June 30. If you have been waiting around for the announcement like I have, rejoice fellow Nintendorks for they have arrived!
This year, Nintendo ditched the physical rewards entirely in favor of the digital content they started giving last year. That’s right, everyone gets a free game this year. Here are your options:
For Gold members (and Platinum):
- Ice Climbers (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 Gold Coins (3DS)
For Platinum members only:
- 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 and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move (3DS)
What do you guys think of the elite rewards this year? If you qualify for this free reward this year, what are you getting and are you a Platinum or Gold member?
I’m a Gold member this year and I am actually a bit jealous of the Platinum members for just one reason. They get Earthbound and I don’t. I do like the rewards this year though. I’m not sure what I’ll decide on, but I’m leaning toward Kid Icarus or Super Mario Land 2.
