Nintendo Download: Blaster Master

Every week, I choose a game to feature in each issue of Nintendo Download, and Blaster Master is very near and dear to my heart. It was one of the first games I really "got" as a kid, and I spent hours learning twitch re...

Sega doesn't seem to want its games on the Wii U Virtual Console

This month's Club Nintendo rewards include Paper Mario, Kid Icarus photo
This month's Club Nintendo rewards include Paper Mario, Kid Icarus
by Jordan Devore

The Club Nintendo game rewards for this month are in. Hope you aren't averse to repeats:

  • Donkey Kong Jr. (Wii U) - 200 Coins
  • 3D Classics: Kid Icarus (3DS) - 200 Coins
  • Paper Mario (Wii/Wii U) - 250 Coins
  • Metal Torrent (3DS) - 200 Coins

I'd be all over Paper Mario if it were possible to play on Wii U without using Wii Mode. Like, how sweet would full-on GamePad support be? The sweetest.

Nintendo hasn't yet announced this year's rewards for Elite members who have obtained Gold or Platinum status at Club Nintendo, but that info should be coming before too long.
