Ever since Nintendo Badge Arcade came to the Nintendo eShop, it has been a hit! The idea of badges being used for home screen customization was genius on Nintendo’s part. I was never too keen on the idea of having to pay for more tries in the crane since I feel that the whole idea of the game should be free, but I digress.

Nintendo Badge Arcade has been getting frequent updates since its launch, and with said updates, it’s getting newer and rarer badges that you’re going to want! The majority of the cranes are for major titles like Mario, Zelda, and Animal Crossing. However, there are cranes based on interesting characters, games and themes, such as Rhythm Heaven or different foods. On occasion, the arcade will slide things in at a certain time, like the Fire Emblem-themed material toward the end of the week when the new Fire Emblem games hit store shelves.

The cranes for this week:

  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker/A Link Between Worlds/Tri Force Heroes
  • Super Mario: Mario Kart/Chocolate/Super Mario World/The Cat Mario Show
  • Animal Crossing: Holiday theme/Amiibo Festival
  • Nikki: Swapnote
  • Food
  • Kirby
  • Rhythm Heaven
  • Fire Emblem: Fates
