Today Club Nintendo's North America branch shuts down, leaving Nintendo fans distraught.

Today in North America, we say goodbye to a six-year old loyalty program that Nintendo developed for the gamers to enjoy.

It’s sad to see you go

It’s very sad to see this loyalty program being shut down. The program gave the Nintendo fan-base an extra incentive when purchasing games – because when purchased “New”, they came with that special Club Nintendo code. I for one have saved up tons of coins over the past six years, and bought some collectible posters for A Link Between Worlds and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. After 11:59 PDT this evening all accounts and coins will be deleted, so if you haven’t had the chance to use yours up, better get to it.
