Get 100 Club Nintendo Coins For Downloading New Super Mario Bros. 2

By Ishaan . July 20, 2012 . 2:32pm

Nintendo are pushing the download version of New Super Mario Bros. 2 in North America using Club Nintendo.


For starters, New Super Mario Bros. 2 will net you 50 coins if you buy the packaged version and register it with the site by September 20th. However, if you purchase the download version and complete the registration survey, you’ll get 100 coins.


In order to do this, you’ll need to link your Nintendo 3DS to your Club Nintendo account, as this is how eShop purchases are tracked on the Club Nintendo service.


New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be released on August 19th in North America.

    Not that I’m interested in the game but if I were, I’d be having a war with myself right about now.

    Beautiful game case Vs. More Ninty club points for a nice prize.

    Why must life be so cruel?

  • Muffum

    Is it wrong that I’m only waiting for this to be released so Unchained Blades can finally be released on the eShop?

    • Barrylocke89

      Nope, because I’m also waiting to hear the price+release date of the 3DS version of Unchained Blades, so I can decide whether I should get the game earlier on the handheld I already own (PSP) or wait to get what appears to be the better version on the handheld that I will hopefully own in the near future (3DS)

    I somehow read that as Get 100 Club Nintendo Coins TO Download New Super Mario Bros 2.  I was about to jump for joy that Nintendo was actually giving out something GOOD for its Club Nintendo points.  Then I stopped, thought , came to the realization that there is NO way I read that right.  100 Club Nintendo points is nothing and there is no way they’d give you a full retail title for such a paltry amount. So I re-read the title only to realize that you GET 100 points when you purchase NSMB.

    My face when I first read it :O :) :P

    My face when I re read it :(    ( ;_:)

      …100 coins for NSMB2? that would be amazing, but why pretty much give away a game that’s guaranteed to sell millions? 

      • Anime10121

         Because I’m a hopeful idiot that reads far too fast:P

  • Jon McGuire

    If I ever do get this I’ll probably download it from the eShop.

  • Nintendo Coins? Well, I’m in Europe, so we use Nintnedo Stars. And each new game gives you 250 stars, with which you can buy goodies in the Stars Catalogue. I currently own 2600 stars, and I have one unused code that I still need to register.

    But even if I got 250 extra stars for downloading New Super Mario Bros. 2, I would not do it. I prefer physical games, so I will always opt for the physical version if it is available. Sorry, Nintendo. No download for me. I’ll visit my local gamestore and buy it physically on August 17. :)

  • Tales_of_Master

    Getting 100 Nintendo point is sure tempting…but I think I’ll stick with my old-school packaged game :P

  • I’m already set to download this game, so free coins just for doing so is a win for me.

  • Leanaa

    How much does it cost on the eshop?

    • James Beatty

      Well, the same price. 

  • Ben Sylvia

    I would totally forgo the physical copy for 100 coins.  If there was actually anything on there I wanted.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    While 100 Ninty Club coin is indeed tempting here.^^(Considering, we can get minimal 2 game from Ninty Club there and minimize the amount of game we need for being Platinum.)

    As long as the game is sold physical there, i will surely support physical copy.^^

  • Shadowman

    Hmmm physical copy or digital copy that’s a though one I think ill go physical copy.

  • I see what you did, there, Nintendo.

  • 2Chep

    Make it cheaper and that may add some incentive for me to go digital. Until that happens physical all the way.

    • James Beatty

      Well, they are giving you an incentive, several in fact. You get the coins, plus any convenience you can get from buying digital. (not having to go to the store, not having to carry around several cartridges, not having to switch out cartridges, ect.) I think for a game like animal crossing or mario kart it’s more than worth it to always have it in your system. This one…well i don’t know, i heard its’ supposed to be pretty long
