Europe’s Nintendo Badge Arcade Is Celebrating Its Sixth Month Anniversary



People in Europe, or with a European Nintendo 3DS system, will want to log into the Nintendo Badge Arcade every day until May 20, 2016. A six month anniversary event is now in effect, with discounts, free plays, new catchers, and thank you badges available.


To start, every Nintendo Badge Arcade visitor gets two free plays every day during the anniversary event. In case you aren’t a frequent attendee, these two plays can be used on any available grabber. New badge machines will be available every day until May 20, 2016, meaning there’ll be more opportunities to get different badges with the free plays.


All of the plays are on sale as well. Typically, you pay €1 for 5 plays. During the anniversary event, you’ll get 5 plays for €0.50. The four aforementioned thank you badges each have the sales rabbit on them and you get one for each €0.50 you spend. If you spend €2 on 20 plays, you’ll get each thank you badge. The thank you badge promotion will extend past the anniversary event, as it runs until May 27, 2016.


The Nintendo Badge Arcade is immediately available on the Nintendo 3DS in all regions and can be downloaded from the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
