The My Nintendo rewards programme has been updated with new gold and platinum point discounts on a selection of Nintendo 3DS and Wii U games.
Nintendo is discounting the price of nine games on the 3DS and Wii U in the latest batch of My Nintendo rewards for the European region.
Last summer’s enjoyable Mii RPG, Miitopia, gets a 30% cut for 50 gold points, and the retro mini-game compilation, NES Remix 2, gets a 50% reduction for the same amount of imaginary Mario tokens.
For our money the pick of the bunch is Pocket Card Jockey, an imaginative – and bonkers – combination of horse racing and Solitaire from Game Freak, makers of the Pokémon series. Although you might feel done with your 3DS, it’s a fun game well worth checking out.
If you’re in the US you can still grab discounts on Super Mario Bros 3, Pilot Wings Resort, and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, among many other titles.
Here is the full list of newly added rewards.
