You can buy select downloadable games with Club Nintendo points now! Well, not now exactly, as North America’s Club Nintendo site is down for maintenance, but as this screengrab shows, you can soon choose to spend your points on a handful of first-party eShop, DSiWare, Virtual Console (on Wii), and WiiWare releases.
The initial selection includes the following:
- 3D Classics: Xevious (eShop) for 100 points
- Super Mario Kart (VC) for 100 points
- Fluidity (WiiWare) for 150 points
- Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again! (DSiWare) for 150 points
The games are chosen based on Club Nintendo member feedback, and are replaced with “a new surprise selection each month”. This is an obvious idea that I always assumed Nintendo would never implement because it’s too awesome, but here it is! The only problem is now I’ll never save enough points to get a Game & Watch: Ball.
In other digital download news, Pushmo is out on the eShop today or $6.99! Grab that shiz.
