I picked up both of them in a flash
After months of waiting, Nintendo shadow-dropped the Kirby’s Dream Buffet keychain today on the US My Nintendo marketplace. In a separate set of posts, a few more surprises showed up: EarthBound stuff!
Celebrating EarthBound and EarthBound Beginnings (which are on the SNES and NES service for Switch Online respectively) there’s two things on offer: an EarthBound Beginnings Eight Melodies Notebook, and a Phase Distorter Luggage tag. Nintendo also dropped a Mario-themed 2023 desktop calendar, inline with previous years.
The notebook clocks in at 64 pages, and has “illustrations of characters from the game, and eight pages for composing music.” For 400 Platinum, it’s one of the fancier notebooks Nintendo has offered on the service to date.
Here’s a full recap of everything that arrived on My Nintendo on December 22, 2022, as well as direct links to the merch:
- EarthBound Beginnings: Eight Melodies Notebook (400 Platinum Points)
- EarthBound Beginnings: Phase Distorter Luggage Tag (400 Platinum Points)
- Kirby’s Dream Buffet Keychain (600 Platinum Points)
- My Nintendo 2023 Desktop Calendar (400 Platinum Points)
If you need more My Nintendo Platinum Points now, we have you covered:
As a reminder, if you want physical rewards, you can find our full Platinum Point guide here, which has been updated with details on weekly missions: bookmark it for when you need quick points for a reward. A handful of points is incredibly easy to get, as that’s basically just 15 minutes with Super Mario Run, or a quick sign-on to the 3DS or Wii U 3Shop. Also remember that any shipments are bundled together, so you can pay a flat rate for multiple items instead of paying it each time. Just know that items go out of stock on My Nintendo frequently, and some are never restocked.
