In a newly released batch of rewards for their My Nintendo member program, Nintendo is giving users a limited time opportunity to redeem gold points for some of the most popular indie games for the Nintendo 3DS and also for the Wii U.
This is the first time Nintendo has released full games as part of their newest rewards program, My Nintendo, and it is the first time ever for their rewards to include games from independent developers. It’s unclear how long each of the four games will remain as rewards in My Nintendo, so it’s best to pick them up while you can!
The four indie games include:
Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien (Wii U, 90 gold points) – an auto-running platformer where players run through 5 different worlds with the goal of tacking down the Nefarious Timbletot who has un-fused protagonist CommanderVideo’s reality. Redeem it here!
