My Nintendo New Site & Rewards

The My Nintendo Reward site has been updated with a completely new look, including simplification of the points. No longer are Miitomo coins and Platinum Point coins in separate containers – they’re all in one. It’s easy to see how many Gold Point and Platinum Points are available to spend. Remember, these do expire, so be sure to check out your Point Summary page to avoid having any Points expire before you get a chance to use them.

The newest rewards are Zelda related goodies. First up, you can score some games at a discount. A Link to the Past can be had for 30% less on the New 3DS or Wii U if you spend 240 Platinum Points. Skyward Sword gets 30% off for Wii U if you spend 50 Gold Points.

The next set of rewards are pretty cool. In celebration of the 30th anniversary of Zelda, you can download an exclusive 3DS HOME Theme that has some awesome music based on the fairy theme from the Zelda series. It also features iconic sound effects, like the sword clang when you open an application. This runs 300 Platinum Points and is worth the price of admission.

Keeping with the Zelda fun, for 100 Platinum Points each you can get three separate orchestrated pieces of music that you can listen to via video downloads to your Nintendo 3DS. These include: Great Fairy’s Fountain Theme, Main Theme Melody, and Ballad of the Goddess. They take up anywhere from 300 to 600 blocks of memory each. Keep in mind that these videos were once available via the Nintendo Video app in 2011, but now you can download them to your system and watch them anytime you like! I also wanted to point out that all three of the videos are in 3D and look (and sound) great! It’s totally worth spending the points on these videos, especially if they’re going to expire anyway.
