Detective Pikachu and a selection of Mario games are among the latest batch of My Nintendo rewards.

The My Nintendo rewards programme continues to ignore the success of the Nintendo Switch with another selection of themes and discounts for the humble 3DS.

That being said, there are some good games featured in this month’s lineup. Detective Pikachu was oddly overlooked on its release, and – if you can find some friends – The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is pretty good fun. We’re also rather fond of Mario Tennis Open, Mario Golf: World Tour and Mario Kart 7. Hal Laboratory’s delightful puzzle game, Bye-Bye BoxBoy!, is also excellent.


Here’s the full round-up of December’s new My Nintendo rewards.

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.
