The My Nintendo rewards programme has been updated with new gold and platinum point discounts, plus a new 3DS Zelda theme.
Five games get Gold and Platinum point discounts on Wii U and 3DS. The pick of the bunch is a 40% reduction on the Wii’s Super Mario Galaxy, playable on Wii U. Also recommended is the Wii U Virtual Console release of F-Zero: Maximum Velocity, and the riotous Nintendo 3DS RPG, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros.
The 3DS also gets a new The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild theme, priced at 20 gold points. And Nintendo has also issued a range of PDF guidebooks that act as primers for a range of first and second party games. Each one costs 10 Gold points.
Here is the full list of April’s rewards:
