  • Linskarmo

    I’m probably going for the soundtrack.

  • Definitely getting myself that soundtrack >.>

    Although when I saw “Smash Bros” on the list here, I thought you meant a preorder for the new game and almost died

  • Getting the posters myself. I’ve already got tons of game stuff in my room, so why not a few more posters?

    • If you click on the posters, will it show you all 3 before you redeem? I dont want to accidentally choose them without seeing all 3

      • Uncle Ben

        Yeah, I tried it. It will require confirmation after you click it, so you’re good.

  • The Unknown Legacy

    I expected more since it was the year of Luigi. :l
    I was thinking between the posters and the Zelda game. Ended up getting the legend of zelda link’s awakening DX

    • I was expecting a Luigi hat myself, but they might not have wanted to give out such a costly reward considering many people likely got gold and platinum with their Wii U purchase.

      • Adrian

        I would have liked the hat :(.

      • YayGs

        Well, they did give Luigi Hats out at Best Buys when they had the Wii U stand(s) there. But I also expected some Luigi themed stuff.

      • Luffy

        I got a luigi hat from the best buy event πŸ™‚

  • Geek_Daddy

    well this is lame and disappointing…

  • Maxid765

    didn’t have enough points to be gold or plat :p

  • trevelyn412

    I got the soundtrack πŸ™‚

  • Mr. J

    i have an xl, 3ds, wii, and wii u all unregistered and 10 games for the 3ds plus 7 for the wii u is that enough

    • its too late now. you’d have to register them towards next year’s rewards

      • Mr. J


  • γƒ©γƒŸγƒ¬γ‚Ή ジョスエ

    I wanted Wind Wakere HD to be the Platinum award, I guess I’ll just settle for the Soundtrack.

  • therealruben1

    I wish i could pick all

  • Lusunup

    I was kinda dissappointed by the offers wish it was the same prizes as the mario figurines.I went for the sound track oh well.

  • Saul Rivera

    Was tempted to get the soundtrack but since I bought a 3DS yesterday I went for the Zelda game…

  • lozman1122

    Soundtrack or poster set… Hmm… I’m going to be here awhile guys.

    • It’s almost as bad as it was when I tried naming my ACNL town…

      • lozman1122

        lol is that a good game? I have a 3DS but not that game… i’ve considered it though.

        And apparently i didn’t register my nintendo gear soon enough. I’m pretty new to club nintendo and I registered everything then and got platinum status. Sadly, not soon enough… Here’s to hoping that next year brings good gifts.

        • It’s REALLY good. It’s my first entry in the series and I am loving it. It starts a bit slow the first week or so, but there’s so much to do now, its a little overwhelming. Read some reviews and see if they speak to you is my recommendation. That’s what I did, and that’s what made me get it.

          • lozman1122

            I shall do that kind sir.

    • bizzy gie

      Super Smash Bros! Easy choice.

    • YayGs

      Snap, I was thinking Soundtrack for sure since I have enough posters (most of which are no longer on my wall, you know married life and all) but after seeing the posters it’s… I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!
      I’m only 90 coins from Platinum status for the new club year, can’t I just put that toward these rewards and get both?!

  • BGhp

    Iam waiting in till they give out wii u games

    • Thomas Vienna

      Don’t hold your breath. I have a feeling Nintendo only gives out things they’ve overstocked in the past.

      • YayGs

        Gamecube games?

  • Ducked

    I actually haven’t signed up for Club Nintendo yet

  • Banjobug

    Curses! I was only 30 coins away from Platinum. Could have gotten some nifty posters or Majora’s Mask stuff.

  • Miguel Angel Casillas


  • noel

    I got Link’s Awakening DX..i didnt get the MM soundtrack because im optimistic that Nintendo will make an HD MM3D πŸ™‚

  • derek

    already went for the Majora’s Mask Soundtrack… gotta love some zelda music

    • Adrian

      I did everything there was to do in Majoras Mask…it might actually be the only Zelda where I got all 20 hearts (usually I end up with 19)….but I honestly don’t remember the music in that game at all. No impact for me. Ocarina of Time on the other hand…I remember every song.

    • DragonSilths

      You could download the Majora’s Mask Soundtrack via Torrents though…

      • derek

        doesn’t beat the feel of actually owning the legit cd though

  • RARE

    I feel terrible that I didn’t get platinum. I got Gold but I really want that Wind Waker poster, the others posters are just icing on the cake.

    • KnowledgeIsPower

      What will you give me for mine?

  • Jeffery02

    Am I the only one that thinks that Platinum should let you get 2 gifts? One Platinum exclusive and one Gold?

    • Fred

      I settle for 1 platinum exclusive OR 2 Golds!!! (2 golds since it took double the coins as 1 gold)

    • Adrian

      Jeffery, that is what I was thinking!

  • Dan

    I was hoping for an awesome statue like they had a few years back. I really want one of those! The only poster I cared about was Luigi so I settled for the CD soundtrack. I’m not one to listen to game soundtracks, but of all options I guess this one will hold the most collector value. Although the calendar would have proably been the item that would be the most useful for me.

  • Fred

    Is WarioWare DIY Showcase any good if you don’t have the DS WarioWare DIY?

    • everyone

      I wondered that too. I read the description and it didn’t seem like the same amount of games a normal WarioWare would have.

      • Fred

        I know part of the enticement is supposed to be designing your own game, but I know it works in conjunction with the DS game so I’m wondering if I should get this free and then buy the DS game seperately

        • everyone

          The DS game is dirt cheap new on amazon so you might not have a bad time with it.

  • TrueWiiMaster

    I wish I could have gotten both the Majora CD and the poster set, but in the end the thought of Zelda in flac won out. Maybe I’ll be able to get the posters online or something…

    • sslamajama97

      Wait a minute, which one did you get? Didn’t understand what you meant by “Zelda in flac”…

      • TrueWiiMaster

        I got the CD. flac is a type of audio file that has a very high bit rate, so it sounds much better than mp3 or most other audio files (the drawback being that the files are also much larger). With a good sound system or a decent pair of headphones, the difference is amazing.

        • sslamajama97

          Oh, okay. Didn’t even know that file type existed. Thanks for clearing that up. Hope the CD is awesome!

  • YayGs

    I suspected they would be announced today when I say that they went into Maintenance for Club Nintendo when I was up working late.

    I’ll probably end up getting the Sound Track, unless the posters are just really awesome, because I already have enough posters and though I haven’t bought Link’s Awakening DX yet (I do have both original version on GameBoy) it’s not very much to buy it.

  • Kenshin0011

    Just redeemed the 3 Poster set, much more valuable than anything else on the list! πŸ˜€

    • FungalSpawn

      me too. Save to sell someday.

  • Ice Climbers

    Ordered the soundtrack.

  • sslamajama97

    Ugh…I’m torn between the MM soundtrack and the calendar. Not really interested in the poster set, because there’s only one Zelda poster. If they had a completely Zelda poster set, then I would’ve gotten that in a heartbeat. But, now I’m stuck. Suggestions?

    • sslamajama97

      Actually, I changed my mind, and now I’m interested in the poster set, too. Ugh! So many choices!

    • everyone

      I got the MM cd just because of the fact you never see old soundtracks like that for a decent price.

  • Only a few are true gamers

    I can get any of them but which one to get

  • Tim van Broekhoven

    Club Nintendo Europe doesn’t have something like this… :'(

  • Adrian

    Suck suck suck suck sucky!!! What a disappointment for my first time being part of club Nintendo rewards. I could either get some pieces of paper with dates or artwork on them, or I can get a CD….All of these things ridiculously cheap to manufacture (like probably less than a dollar) and I just feel like they didn’t even try to give fans something worth keeping, or treasuring.

    I’ll probably have to just get Super Smash bros as that is one of my fave games of all time…even though I already have that for 64. But man! What a bummer. πŸ™

    • Adrian

      Actually smash requires controllers that I’m never going to buy, so I’d rather just keep playing on my N64. I might just have to get the posters, store them, and sell them in 60 years for a bunch of a $$$ :-p.

      • Rob Lucci

        Or just get nothing and stop your bitching.

        • Adrian

          Shame on you. This is why Luffy owned the CP9, because you are a terrible person :-p.

      • Wayne Beck

        When it get’s upgraded to Wii U, you’ll be able to use any controller you want.

        • Adrian

          I was considering that. But I feel the classic experience of the N64 controller might be impossible to beat. Although, it’d be pretty interesting if Nintendo came out with a N64 controller Addon to the Wii Mote…. haha.

          • Adrian

            It’d be even cooler if they made it especially for Elite members of club Nintendo…now that is a prize I would love!

    • TrueWiiMaster

      The CD’s pretty awesome, actually. The Zelda franchise has great music. To get an album for free is great.

      Also, even though a CD is cheap to manufacture, an album like this would go for $10 or more if it was for sale. That’s a pretty great reward considering it was free.

      • DereX

        Have you ever heard of Powerup rewards? Nintendo’s prizes are pitiful… We are torn between a soundtrack that would never sell in a store and free to dl, a calendar that will only be used once, or a few posters… They should have given us something we can actually use like a coupon or something? I would have even preferred a cup with Mario’s face on it.

        • Adrian

          I would definitely get the cup with Mario’s face on it!

        • TrueWiiMaster

          Yes. It’s pretty much useless unless you buy tons of used games and subscribe to the Pro membership. Even then it’s not that good. You have to spend hundreds of dollars to get even small rewards (I think it was $400 to get $5 off a used game without a paid subscription, and $200 with one). Personally, I prefer Best Buy. $5 for every $250 without a subscription or credit card, great deals like Skyward Sword for $15, and if you’re Silver, free expedited shipping and a 60 day return policy. Plus there’s a game subscription option, which adds a magazine, each issue guaranteed to have $100 or more of gaming coupons. Their great benefits are part of the reason I pretty much stopped going to Gamestop.

          Anyway, back on topic, that’s not a comparable service. Gamestop is selling you stuff, and you get points for buying it as an incentive. Club Nintendo gives you points for things you already bought. In fact, it allows you to buy the games from Gamestop, getting the benefits there, and then get extra benefits for free.

          Where is the Majora’s Mask Album free to download officially? Or even in equal quality to what this will likely be?

          Calendars are only meant to be used for a year, and posters are something people can and do use. If you don’t want physical items, they also offer 5 games that you can get on the 3DS, Wii, or Wii U.

    • DereX

      1st time for me too. I was all excited about the “suspected” Luigi hat … Never overestimate Nintendo’s generosity.

      • Geek_Daddy

        they did a mario hat a few years ago. I expected a Luigi hat and I too was disappointed.

  • Adrian

    What Nintendo should have done, if they didn’t want to be cheap butts, is give everybody in elite status the posters, cd, and Calendar…and then allowed you to download one of the games as your choice. Package deal.

  • Kenshin0011

    The posters that Nintendo make are NOT cheap, they are very unique and cool!. Last year, I got the skyward sword poster which has different textures and a slightly foiled engraved text and my luigi’s mansion 2 poster had its ghosts glow in the dark!

  • FungalSpawn

    Horrible rewards…really. A CD? Who owns a CD player? Wii U can’t even play CDs…lol what the hell man. Only thing I can think to do is get the posters and sell them so that I can buy a used game…

    • TrueWiiMaster

      Your computer doesn’t have a disc drive?

      • Guest

        If it’s a new Apple product, the chances are low.

  • Wayne Beck

    I loves that Nintendo does this yearly reward program, I’m already gold for next year lol, but I wish one of these games was on my Wii U =(

  • Joie Liba

    I don’t really care about a CD when I can probably find the music on youtube. And posters? Maybe. I mean they’re cool and all, but still.

  • mojack411

    I’m only a Gold member, so its between Link’s Awakening and Sakura Samurai for me.

  • The Mystical One

    Soundtrack seems like the best deal going.

  • Michael Jurado

    hmm poster or the 2014 calender o.O also will someone pick the CD and upload it to youtube so all of us can listen Please and Thank
    ~The Maverick Hunter

  • Ernie Sanguyo

    awesome got me those posters πŸ™‚

  • HotInEER

    Crap, was in the middle of getting my Super Smash Bros and the site went down for maintenance. Either so many people were on the site it crashed, or maybe they are updating the gifts to something better.

  • Bob Charlie

    Just sent in my order for the poster set!

  • Luffy

    I’m getting the three poster set

    The Zelda poster is just tooooo epic!!!

  • Chris Hickman

    So nothing for Wii-U owners? I would have taken literally anything for the Wii-U… even some lame mini game eShop download for my kids to mess with.

  • Adrian Brown

    I have some things to say. First, The CD and the posters are great, but for people like me who live outide the US, we can only choose from the downloadable games, so our choices are less.

    Second, The games are pretty cool, but considering that we had to register games and systems to get the Gold/Platinum status for a game that costs $10 on the Wii Shop doesn’t look fair. After all is a free game so…

    Finally, I would prefer games that are not available to purchase from the eshops, or games that will be released later on, like Earthbound or Mario 64 on Wii U, or include the Ambassador games for 3DS owners such as Metroid Fusion or Minish Cap. I mean they said they will not sell those Ambassador games, but they should give them for CN members as well.

    Since I don’t live in the US I would need to pick from just 4 games since I already got LA and WarioWare. As a Zelda fan I would choose that awesome Original Soundtrack πŸ™

    PD: I’m still waiting for GBA games to be redeemed as CN rewards.

  • johnzig

    man each year the gifts go downhill. not trying to be greedy but, the sculpture was boss yo!!!!

  • Jon

    You guys are pathetic. (well, not all of you) It is just people are constantly whining about the rewards. These rewards are free to you essentially. Yes you pay for the game to get the rewards but really you pay for the games to play the game, not for the Club Nintendo reward. Plus Nintendo doesn’t need to even need to give you a yearly reward. They just give it to you more as a thanks for supporting them. And if you look at it, you are getting this reward plus more when you actually spend your coins. Like come on people, stop being a bunch of greedy douche bags.

    • 8ruc3

      This is exactly what I was thinking about…

  • foxtrot

    I’m listening to the soundtrack before I redeem the soundtrack or the poster

  • bryan

    it says ship before December , does that mean itll take months to ship?

    • Jon

      I usually get it sometime in the fall which is understandable when you consider the amount of shipments will be done

  • ItzameyaToad

    Im torn between the 3 poster set,calendar and Super Smash Bros…. not sure which to get.

  • Edgar Robles

    Great, this got featured on joystiq!

  • Fuzunga

    Posters or the Majora’s Mask soundtrack. Hmmm…

    That’s like choosing between a sandwich and a new car.

  • sd

    So In Australia you get about 200-250 points for a WiiU game. I have 3000+ points. We dont get any platinum or gold thing but so far for all my points I can get a pack of normal playing cards . Yay for us, lol.

  • HotInEER

    Not the best prizes to choose form but I went with the posters. Said I should receive them by December 2013, LOL. I hope it doesn’t take 5 months to ship.

  • Matthew Stapleton

    Just got my soundtrack ordered.

  • z. smasher

    I went with the smash game since i have melee and brawl but not the original one and im also a huge smash fan, its my fav franchise. its one of the few games i play over and over, plus i dont own a 3ds and the wario ware doesnt really appeal to me.

    ps: why does most ppl want the sound track if it only has music, is there something i dont get (and i know the its free not the point though)
