My Nintendo - Metroid Prime Trilogy

The latest selection of My Nintendo rewards includes discounts for Mario Kart 8, Metroid Prime Trilogy, Splatoon, and games from the Zelda series.

If you’re in Europe, the pick of this month’s My Nintendo rewards are discounts on a range of Wii U games. The Mario Kart and Splatoon series may have superior outings on Nintendo Switch, but the Wii U originals are still worth checking out, as is the HD version of the underrated The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

If you want to see what Retro Studios are capable of before the release of Metroid Prime 4, we also recommend grabbing Metroid Prime Trilogy. It’s an excellent compilation with some expertly implemented motion controls.


In the United States, a clutch of Mario sports titles also get discounts – Mario Golf: World Tour is our pick – and there are some new 3DS themes to choose from. A range of goodies to celebrate MAR10 Day on March 10 are also on offer. Members can choose from computer and smart phone backgrounds, and some printable game invites.

Here’s the current lineup of My Nintendo rewards.
