It’s that time of year again and Club Nintendo has revealed the Elite Rewards for those that have collected enough coins throughout the year to reach either Platinum and/or Gold status. If all of this is new to you, here’s a brief rundown of how it all works: Each time you buy a 1st party Nintendo game, there will be an insert inside of it that has a PIN code.
