Nintendo released an official PR statement earlier this week regarding the future of Club Nintendo. Fans can continue to earn coins from various Nintendo titles until March 31, 2015, with the exception of any titles produced after January 20. Said coins must be used by June 30, 2015, as well, and Elite status members will still get a little something before the end of the program.

This is quite a big deal, as the program has been running for six years, offering free goodies such as downloadable titles and physical items. What’s more, Nintendo is planning on implementing a “new customer loyalty program”. This could be a good step if it goes the direction that Mr. Iwata had mentioned earlier last year. And hey, as long as you’re a Club Nintendo member, you’ll get a free download code for Flipnote Studio 3D!

Let the coin gathering — and spending — begin, before time runs out!
