Club Nintendo 2014 'Elite Rewards' released

Club Nintendo, the loyalty program that awards points ("coins") for buying and registering hardware and games, has revealed its cumulative Platinum and Gold rewards for this year. In a marked change from the usual, this time all of the rewards are game downloads.

 As usual, the rewards are split into two tiers based on cumulative coins earned in the past year. Platinum members get to choose one game from a selection of newer downloadable games, while Gold members get their choice of Virtual Console games. Platinum members could opt for a Gold game if they wish.

Platinum rewards are Game & Wario, NES Remix, Earthbound, Dr. Luigi, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Fluidity: Spin Cycle, Dillon's Rolling Western, and Mario & Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move. The Gold rewards are Ice Climber, Kid Icarus, Super Mario Bros, Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link, Donkey Kong 3, WarioLand 2, Metroid, and Super Mario Land 2.

Club Nintendo has given digital rewards for its annual promotion before, but also offered physical items like posters and pins. This is the first year that all of the rewards have been game downloads.
