Nintendo’s new gaming rewards system, replacing Club Nintendo, is now available for the company’s eastern audience.
This new program aims to connect Nintendo’s console, mobile, and PC games by using a cloud-based service to share and transfer player data. Nintendo retired Club Nintendo upon sealing its partnership with DeNA in order to create a better, more rewarding account system.
“Nintendo Account,” as it’s imaginatively called, synchronizes with players’ Nintendo Network IDs, meaning one is required in order to use the account. This is slightly different from before, where users created a separate Club Nintendo ID. Nintendo Account is scheduled to arrive west in spring 2016, and Club Nintendo account data will NOT carry over, as was stated by Nintendo before the Club’s discontinuation.
