Every month we get a new set of games from Nintendo on the Club Nintendo store that can be redeemed for 200 coins for Wii/Wii U games, and 150 coins for Nintendo 3DS games. This month’s games have been updated to feature Punch-Out!! featuring Mr. Dream and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. For those of you unfamiliar with Nintendo’s recent advertising change, only Punch-Out!! can be played on the Wii U native virtual console. If you redeem your coins for Super Mario RPG, you’ll have to boot into Wii mode in order to play it.
Also updated was the Nintendo 3DS selection, including Donkey Kong Jr. and Pictobits. All of these games will be available until March 9th, so if you have extra coins sitting around in your account and you want to redeem them, be sure and pick them up before that date. If you do decide to purchase Super Mario RPG, you’ll be able to convert it to a Wii U virtual console game at a discount price should it be added to the Wii U virtual console some time in the future.
