Two classic Nintendo games get discounts in the latest batch of My Nintendo rewards.
There’s a new selection of game discounts now available for My Nintendo account holders in Europe, and a brand new theme to download for the Nintendo 3DS.
Classic Nintendo 64 launch game Super Mario 64 gets a 30% discount on the Wii U Virtual Console in exchange for 100 Platinum Points. Mario’s first 3D outing needs little introduction, and even if you’ve long moved over the Nintendo Switch it’s well worth dusting off the old GamePad to experience.
120 Gold Points will also get you a 30% price cut on Metroid Samus Returns, the lovingly crafted – and rather underrated – remake of Metroid II from MercurySteam.
Samus Aran is also the subject of a 3DS theme that is available for 20 Gold Points.
Here’s the full list of new My Nintendo rewards for Europe, along with a reminder of this month’s rewards for North America.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
