My Nintendo Loyalty Program Announced

Covers both of the old Nintendo loyalty programs.

Slides from today's Nintendo shareholder's meeting have revealed the DeNA-powered loyalty program will be known as "My Nintendo".

The program will include benefits for playing games on both Nintendo systems and with mobile apps such as Miitomo, which the service will launch alongside in March. The playing and purchase of titles will earn points that can be cashed in for downloadable rewards which may include game DLC, physical rewards (the slide uses the 2010 Club Nintendo Platinum reward statue as an example) or credit in a similar fashion to the retired Deluxe Digital Program.

The Nintendo Account can be up-ported from an existing Nintendo Network ID, but new users will be able to use social media accounts like Twitter or with a Gmail account. Nintendo Account will also include save uploads and friends list management across platforms

I'll wait for details on the program's functionality outside Japan before I care one way or the other about. Lord knows that only the Japanese version of Club Nintendo was ever worth a damn, so I'm not getting my hopes up about this loyalty program being any different, at least when it comes to physical goods.

When I read "my" I though you were joking and meant something like your loyalty to Nintendo or something?

Can't wait to see how NoA screws this up!

At least we'll get eShop coupons!

If i can get DLCs for free using this program i might actually start to buy Nintendo games with DLC.

As of now i've been avoiding them entirely.

Honestly though, I hope this means purchases are tied to an account, both before and after this account system goes live.

I see a lot of disloyal people in this thread. You will be reported.

Sounds decent enough. They whole reward program reminds me of this weird reward program Xbox just launched.

I wonder if they will keep this name for NA, since NA's original program was called MyNintendo.
