It’s been a while, but we’re back with a new Question of the Week! With Club Nintendo finally put to rest, it’s time to look forward to Nintendo’s next loyalty program. But! Before we do that, let’s reflect back on the Club Nintendo’s run and your final moments with the program.

As we have always done in the past, let’s take a look back at the last Question of the Week from January. We asked which Super Mario Bros. 2 character is your favorite to use, and it looks like two characters pushed past the others as MPL’s favorite. Both Peach and Toad were a very popular choice among our readers, with Mario and Luigi taking a backseat in popularity. BossBlitz88 went on to say that he loves speeding through a level with Toad, while¬†Kirbylover490 made it clear how fun and important Peach’s float is. And with that said, let’s focus in on our question for this week…


How did your time with Club Nintendo end?

I can still remember when Club Nintendo was finally opened in North America back in December of 2008. I was jealous of all the other regions that were getting cool rewards for years prior, and it was such an exciting moment being a Nintendo fan. Even though a lot of Club Nintendo was filled with random items like Mario themed folders and Metroid screen savers, it still had its moments when things like the Game & Watch Collection for the Nintendo DS or the Luigi’s Mansion figurine were released. Some of my favorite (let’s be real, only) rewards were the two 3DS game card cases that have very much come in handy, as well as the Wii Remote holder I got as my first reward. I also got the wonderful Zelda posters for the 25th anniversary!

My last few moments with Club Nintendo involved me looking through a giant list of digital games and trying to narrow down the one I wanted most. I actually ended up getting the extra 3DS game card case when I realized I was about 100 coins off from getting Star Fox 64 3D. To add to the question above, what are you looking forward to in the next loyalty program? How similar do you want it to be to Club Nintendo? What kind of rewards do you want to see?
