My Nintendo

Update: Bumped to the top. There’s now one new reward in North America: Ultimate NES Remix at 30 percent off for 900 Platinum Points.

September has passed, and we’ve now entered a new month. Since October is here, My Nintendo has updated. New rewards are now available in Europe. As for North America, there aren’t really any updates yet (as of this post’s publishing), but the Mario and Donkey Kong 3DS themes have returned.

In any case, here’s what’s new in Europe:

A few days ago, My Nintendo Picross – The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was extended in Europe in Japan. The same has now been done in North America as well.

My Nintendo Picross – The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess can be redeemed “until further notice.” In other words, there’s no end date anymore – previously it was October 1. You can pick it up for 1,000 Platinum Points.


On My Nintendo, if you want to collect Gold Points, you generally need to buy a game. That being said, 30 Gold Points can currently be obtained for free.

The First Skunk Bundle normally costs $25. However, at the moment, it’s currently free. That means you can nab 30 free Gold Points with just a few button clicks. You can take advantage of the “offer” right here.

For those in Australia, you can now take advantage of two new discounts on My Nintendo. Both were added in today.

Discounts for both HarmoKnight and Pocket Card Jockey are 20 percent off, with both requiring 200 Platinum Points. The two expire on December 16.

Update (9/16): Bumped to the top. The same theme can now be acquired in Europe.

Original (9/15): A new reward can now be obtained through My Nintendo in North America. For 100 Platinum Points, you can nab a Yo-kai Watch 2 theme featuring Jibanyan. Get the reward here.

Thanks to Steven B for the tip.

All My Nintendo points have an expiration date. With Platinum Points, they’re valid six months after you collect them. Gold Points stick around a little longer at 12 months.

Now that we’re nearly six months into My Nintendo, points you’ve accumulated may be on the way out. And thankfully, the service now shows when that’ll be happening. If you visit this page, you’ll be able to see how many Regular Platinum Points, Miitomo Platinum Points, and Gold Points are expiring over the next three months. Currently, that’s September, October, and November. My Nintendo should update at the end of the month to show things for December.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

Just like in Europe, a new set of rewards are now up on the North American My Nintendo website.

Here’s the lineup:


15 percent discount on Dr Mario: Miracle Cure (3DS) – 140 Platinum Points
15 percent discount on Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS) – 600 Platinum Points
15 percent discount on Fluidity: Spin Cycle (3DS) – 170 Platinum Points
15 percent discount on Pushmo World (Wii U) – 150 Platinum Points
15 percent discount on Yoshi’s Story (Wii U) – 150 Platinum Points


30 percent discount on Star Fox 64 3D (3DS) – 100 Gold Points
30 percent discount on F-Zero: Maximum Velocity (Wii U) – 20 Gold Points
30 percent discount on Mario Golf: World Tour (3DS) – 80 Gold Points
30 percent discount on Fire Emblem (Wii U) – 20 Gold Points

These rewards are all available until December 1. You can get them here.

It’s a new month, which means new rewards have gone live on My Nintendo. Here’s what’s new in Europe:

Wii U – 15% off Mario Kart 8 – 500 Platinum Points

3DS – 15% off Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. – 200 Platinum Points

3DS – 30% off Nano Assault EX – 300 Platinum Points

Wii U – 50% off XType Plus – 150 Platinum Points

Wii U  – 30% off Super Mario Galaxy  – 350 Platinum Points

Wii U – Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 1 – 60 Gold Points


Since the launch of My Nintendo, users have been able to collect two types of coins. Members have been able to collect Platinum Points as well as Gold Points. With both, they were valid for six months after you collected them, and would expire after that.

Good news: Nintendo has now made a change to My Nintendo, and Gold Coins will last longer than before. Going forward, they’ll be valid for 12 months.

Here’s the official notice from Nintendo:

A new 3DS theme, exclusive to My Nintendo and featuring Samus, has released in some territories, and there is now footage of the theme in action, courtesy of Nintendaan. Check out the video below:
