Ah, Club Nintendo. We love your monthly game updates. I mean, we love it even more when you add new physical items, like that neat Pikmin tote bag I picked up. (It’s precious.) The new games are always something special though. And now, we have the Club Nintendo downloads for October 2013 to choose from!
As usual, there are four new Club Nintendo downloadable games, with 2 for the 3DS and 2 for the Wii. Though, the Wii games can also be redeemed on a Wii U if you go to the Wii mode. This month’s update isn’t shockingly awesome, but there are two games that stand out.
The first is The Legend of Zelda for the 3DS. For 150 coins, you can get this Virtual Console download. Normally, it’s $4.99, so it’s a nice discount. If you’re getting Pokemon X or Y this week, you’ll be halfway to this free download.
The other is Super Mario Kart for the Wii. Again, it’s a 150 coin Virtual Console game. It normally costs $8 though, so it’s a much better deal. It isn’t my favorite of the Mario Kart games though, so I’d recommend the original The Legend of Zelda over it.
The other two Club Nintendo freebies may not garner as much enthusiasm. One is the ThruSpace WiiWare game. It’s an 150 coin action/puzzle game that normally costs $8, and is a spiritual successor to the 3DS game Ketzal’s Corridors. The other is the DSiWare game, Touch Solitaire. It’s just solitaire. Normally, it’s $1.99, and it costs 100 Club Nintendo coins.
The only real stinker this month is Touch Solitaire. The other three games are pretty good. If you have 150 coins to spare, check them out.
