Yesterday, Super Mario Run players received a notification about the progress of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Mega Event and how many times Toad Rally had been played which was just over 7 million times. Today another notification graces our screens to say that Toad Rally has been played an incredible 15,351,688 times. That’s not bad going for on three days but we only have until May 11th to reach the goal of 50,000,000 times played. Below is the in-game notification released today and a reminder of the rewards you can win after reaching certain milestones. (Note: the amount of times played is collectively of course. It would be pretty tough going trying to reach 50,000,000 all on your own).

April 27th marks Kirby’s 25th Anniversary since he was created by Masahiro Sakurai & Satoru Iwata (with a little help from Shiggy as well). He first came to be in Kirby’s Dreamland on the Gameboy and has been in over 20 different titles ranging from Puzzle, Platformer, Fighting, Racing & even Pinball! Amazing what a little pink ball can muster.
Nintendo have already begun celebrating this fact by bringing Kirby back into the limelight again by releasing not one but three different titles over the course of the year and My Nintendo Japan have added a new reward to their site, a Kirby 3DS theme. It costs 20 gold points and is available until the end of May. It is currently not available for the US or Europe but it is only a matter of time before it becomes available in these regions too.
Anyway, Happy Birthday Kirby! You were always a joy to play in Super Smash Bros!

It is no secret that My Nintendo doesn’t have the best of rewards, but right now it has a great one.
For the price of 10 Golf Points players can buy a mini-guide relating to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in PDF format. But why get the guide in the first place? Well how about the fact it is available in five languages (English, French, German Spanish & Italian) and whoever buys the one guide, can select the very language they wish to receive it in. It is also the first 25 pages to the official Piggyback published guide for Breath of the Wild. Continue reading New Breath of the Wild Mini-Guide has been Added to My Nintendo
Time for some more eShop related Switch news that our readers should love.
Besides the console being region free, no longer with Switch are we just limited to just dealing the one eShop, as we can now access the eShop associated to the region we’re in, but also the others, there is however a catch. Should you wish to access the Japanese eShop, you will require a Japanese account to access it, just like you would need a European one to access the European eShop. So while that may deter some of us, it won’t deter all of us. Continue reading Merging Funds & Accessing eShops from Different Regions
The biggest thing with regards to My Nintendo that always annoyed me, was the fact that every time I buy a physical title, I’m not rewarded for it.
I don’t buy digital games because I despise them, I just don’t buy them purely because I like to be able to look at the box art. I enjoy taking the cart/disc out of its box and putting it into my console/handheld. You don’t get that feeling when you buy a digital title and because of that, I didn’t rack up many Gold Points with My Nintendo, but that has now changed.
If you buy a physical Switch title and register it to your console, you can now earn Gold Points for My Nintendo, and the more expensive the game, the more points you will earn. Only thing is though, compared to the points you would get if you brought digitally from the eShop, the points for buying are next to nothing, which in my opinion sucks. It feels like they are finally giving us what we want with one hand, whilst slapping us in the fact with the other, but it is what it is.
There is no changing it and at least some Switch rewards are to be added very soon, so that will distract us from our stinging cheeks for a bit and if you think I’m being over the top, please feel free to comment as such in the comment section below;
