At 3am EST, signs of the new Club Nintendo year clearly indicates some changes to the site. How big will the changes be? Only time will tell.

All we know now is that the Club Nintendo year is over, and the new year begins. Like last year, the rewards for those loyal fans who have bought Nintendo products, registered them, and filled out surveys will find out exactly what they will be receiving.

The Club Nintendo website states the following:


Club Nintendo is currently unavailable due to site maintenance.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

Forum users please note, the Tech Support Forums will be in read-only mode during this time.
