New card cases hit Club Nintendo

If you listen to Infendo Radio, you may know that I’m quite keen on Club Nintendo, a rewards program for fans who register their games and systems and take surveys to earn coins that can be redeemed for downloadable games and physical goodies. Today the service saw the addition of new Nintendo 3DS game card cases for 400 coins per “set.” A set includes a card case in the shape and build of a regular Nintendo 3DS game case and three reversible covers to choose from (adding up to 6 different designs). The Zelda set features one cover devoted to Zelda artwork, one to Mario, and one to the 3DS. The Animal Crossing set has a similar 3DS cover and (of course) an Animal Crossing cover with another Mario cover rounding out the collection. Click here for all the details, including images of the new offerings.

A new and very good selection of downloadable games for 3DS and Wii U also graced Club Nintendo, including F-Zero (a Wii U download, originally released on the SNES), 1080° Snowboarding (available in the Wii Shop channel, not the eShop; originally released on the Nintendo 64), Game & Watch: Cement Factory (a 3DS download, originally released for the Game & Watch Tabletop and as a Game & Watch handheld), and Spin Six (a 3DS download, originally released as a DSiWare title).

I’m a 1080° Snowboarding veteran, so allow me to offer my full recommendation of that game right now. In fact, watch for a review to hit Infendo soon. With Club Nintendo adding a new reward and changing up the downloadable games up for grabs, will you be spending your hard-earned coins on anything in the near future?

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth
