Snag free and discounted 3DS and Wii U games with December’s My Nintendo Rewards


If you’re a part of the My Nintendo Rewards program, you may want to check out the slew of new additions that have just been folded into one. Right now, you can cash in your Gold points for four games on 3DS and Wii U, just in case you’ve been hoarding them for a special occasion. 

For 20 Gold points, you can get Toki Tori 3D, and for 80 Gold points you can get Retro City Rampage DX, both for Nintendo 3DS. If you’re still rocking your Wii U (and you definitely should be, because it’s a rad console) then you can pick up XType Plus for 30 Gold points and Tengami for 80 Gold points. You’ve got until Jan. 27 to cash in on these deals, so you might want to hop on them soon so you don’t forget during the holiday shuffle. 

You can also get certain games at a discount, such as 30 percent Nintendo Land for 50 gold points and 20 percent off Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World for 60 Gold points. There’s a big sale on Zelda games too, just in case you’ve got a hankering for the classic series. You can currently get several games for 40 percent, including Tri Force Heroes, Skyward Sword, Majora’s Mask 3D, and A Link to the Past.

The holidays are getting ready to be in full swing, so if you need an escape from the real world in your favorite handhelds (beyond the Switch) there are some great games here to choose from at a bargain price.
