TinyCast 38! The crew spends this episode chatting about Smash Bros., cosplay Pikachu, Club Nintendo’s Elite rewards, Japan’s third-party direct, and Yokai Watch 2. We also share our impressions on recent releases like One Piece: Unlimited World Red and Squids Odyssey.
Club Nintendo’s platinum/gold prizes are game downloads ⊟
Yeah, this year’s Elite gifts from North American Club Nintendo are not exclusive physical goods like they were in previous years – Mario hats, figurines, etc. They’re not even the old standby calendar.
Instead, this year you can select one of 16 Wii U or 3DS games as a free download, ranging from full retail games (like Game & Wario) to fucking Ice Climber.
Club Nintendo has gone down while I was writing this post, but you can get the reward here when it comes back up. Though I like my Club Nintendo Mario hat and all, I’m not hating on a free copy of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.

Mario Kart 8 shirt for Club Nintendo Japan ⊟
This is pretty nice, despite Waluigi’s inclusion. Maybe you can stain that part of the shirt with ketchup to improve the look. Anyway, Club Nintendo members in Japan can get this by cashing in 600 points, or 500 points if they also register Mario Kart 8.
Your new Yoshi’s New Island t-shirt ⊟
Now on the North American Club Nintendo site for… 800 coins? Good luck!
Animal Crossing Club Nintendo posters being replaced ⊟
Nintendo is reprinting its Club Nintendo Animal Crossing New Leaf poster, because of misidentified characters all over it. I was going to list the incorrectly named animals, but apparently it’s a lot of them and it’s hella complicated! Poor Tutu :(
Anyway, if you have one of these, you’ll be getting a new one soon free of charge, and it’s up to you to decide whether you want to send your old pal JC the new one or the old one. What? Who said that?
Thanks for pointing this out, Alex!
Animal Crossing 3DS XL pouches on Club Nintendo ⊟
You can get either a Light Blue or a Pink Animal Crossing-themed 3DS XL pouch from Club Nintendo for 500 Coins. That’s a lot of points. Not as much as the Super Mario Accessory Box, though, which will set you back 700 U.S. Coins.
Or you can spend your coins to buy Kid Icarus of Myths and Monsters (Game Boy), Number Battle (DSiWare), Yoshi (NES), or Bonsai Barber (WiiWare) from the eShop. That last game is a really strange but curious release developed by Zoonami and Martin Hollis — you know, the director behind Rare’s GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark!

Rumor: Get Pokemon XY free when you register a 3DS and game with Club Nintendo next month ⊟
No need to murder your parents, kids — despite the promises of the disembodied fish in this comic from Jeremy Kaye (Up and Out / Patreon). It looks like Club Nintendo US has a fun promotion coming up, according to a convincing Toys R Us advertisement posted at Go Nintendo.
The way the purported promotion works, you can get a free digital copy of Pokemon X or Y when you register a 3DS/2DS/XL on Club Nintendo some time in March along with one of six first-party games:
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf
- Yoshi’s New Island
- Lego City: Undercover
- Super Mario 3D Land
- Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
- Mario Kart 7
Yay, so all you moms and dads out there can sleep easy… For now.
Animal Crossing posters at Club Nintendo ⊟
If you aren’t a dummy like me, and therefore didn’t blow all your Club Nintendo (US) coins on another 3DS card case, you can get this set of two Animal Crossing: New Leaf posters now for 500 Coins.
That poster showing all the villagers is pretty amazing. It’s like a yearbook for everyone you’ve tried to give junk furniture to, again and again, in a desperate effort to convince them to get rid of the awesome stuff in their houses and give it to you. For example.
The very popular 3DS Game Card Case is back in stock at Club Nintendo, and it has several new jacket designs, offering separate Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing: New Leaf cover sets! The cases hold up to 18 cartridges, and will set you back 400 Points.
Also on Club Nintendo: new downloadable game prizes! We have Game & Watch: Cement Factory (eShop), Spin Six (DSiWare), F-Zero (Wii U eShop), and 1080° Snowboarding (Wii U eShop).
Put your 3DS in a Luigi hat ⊟
The retailer is taking orders on this Luigi hat 3DS pouch, which is made only for Club Nintendo. Play-Asia expects them to be in stock on Jan. 13, and charges $29.99. I believe it used to be 450 Coins on the US Club Nintendo site back when it was available.
Year of Luigi goods from Club Nintendo Japan ⊟
That 3DS XL case! Sure, it’s a bit late for a Year of Luigi tie-in item, but Luigi is in our hearts forever. It also comes with a puzzle – with a bunch of Luigis against a green background. Good luck with that!
Other new items on Japan’s Club Nintendo include a notebook and pen, and the Dr. Luigi cleaning cloth set. I’m a bit jealous of these, even if we do get that crazy Luigi’s Mansion diorama in the US.

Ahh, I need this. Thank you, Year of Luigi.
