Nintendo has announced that its popular service called Club Nintendo will come to an end later this year. However, this will not be the end of rewards as the company assures that it is planning on to bring a new loyalty program for the fans sometime this year.
After the 1st of April, Nintendo will no longer include the product registration cards in its games, while the whole program of Club Nintendo will come to an end on September 30. The stars that are currently available in the players’ account will have to be used by the end of September.
The users, who are planning to purchase New Nintendo 3DS or XL will not be able to get themselves registered in the Club Nintendo at all.
However, they do have the new reward program to look forward to, which is set to launch later this year, and the users who will sign-up for that unnamed program will get Flipnote Studio 3D on a Nintendo 3DS system for free.
We’re working hard to create a new programme, which we plan to launch later this year. And as a special offer, users who sign up to the new programme during the launch period will be able to download Flipnote Studio 3D to a Nintendo 3DS system for free. This new membership programme will replace Club Nintendo.
Club Nintendo served the fans quite well, and I am sure whatever Nintendo has got brewing in their HQ, will be up to the quality that we have come to expect from them.
