Tying in with the launch of New Pokemon Snap, My Nintendo has added in a new reward for fans in North America.

For 400 Platinum Points, you can nab the New Pokemon Snap letter set. It includes twelve letter sheets and two envelopes that can be transformed into a photo stand fitting 4×6 photos.

Thanks to GameStop, we now have a look at the packaging for the Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin amiibo. We have the designs for Razewing Rathalos, Ena, and Tsukino above.

These new amiibo launch alongside Monster Hunter Stories 2 on July 9. GameStop will eventually have pre-orders here.

Kirby’s Dream Land, the very first entry in the Kirby series, came out on April 27, 1992 in Japan. That means the Kirby series as a whole is now 29 years old.

To celebrate the series’ birthday, a new piece of art was posted on the official Japanese Twitter account. Get a look at the image above.


First 4 Figures is expanding its offerings of Nintendo products once again. Revealed today is the Kirby and the Goal Door statue, which should ship later in the year.

Below is all of the relevant information:

Two new rewards based on New Pokemon Snap have been added to My Nintendo in North America. Along with a pop-up card, a wallpaper is up for grabs. They cost 30 Platinum Points and 50 Platinum Points respectively.

Super Nintendo World

After only just opening last month, Super Nintendo World will be temporarily closing. Universal Studios Japan is shutting down its entire theme park “due to the substantial business shutdown request to operate with no spectators which was issued under the state of emergency for Osaka prefecture.”

Japan will be declaring a state of emergency in Tokyo, Osaka, Hyogo, and Kyoto. The country has been experiencing a surge in coronavirus cases as of late.

Universal Studios Japan, including Super Nintendo World, will close on April 25. It will stay that way “until the request has been lifted.”
