Alright, its almost time for the next big step in this roller coaster ride that is the Elysian Shadows game story to take off. In this chapter we will find if enough has been done to get this game the love and attention that it so badly deserves. Now I could keep writing and telling you all about this, but lets just give you the video straight from the source:
For those of you who are not familiar, Club Nintendo is a loyalty program by Nintendo. It works by registering the codes in certain Nintendo games and systems in exchange for points, which you can then trade for items such as 3DS game holders, posters, or digital downloads. Club Nintendo also has a running history of giving out special exclusive prizes yearly to their gold/platinum members (users who have earned a high amount of coins in the June 2013-June 2014.) These prizes range from rare statues to an exclusive Majora's Mask (Legend of Zelda) soundtrack. These items must be achieved by reaching the gold/platinum goal or found on ebay; and, if these items are purchased on ebay, they tend to be very pricey.
Over the course of this year, users have vocalized online, a notice in decline of the amount of physical prizes offered by Club Nintendo. Within the past few months, Nintendo took down all physical prizes for maintenance; allowing users to only trade their 'coins' for digital downloads for the WiiU and 3DS. Although the site has returned physical prizes, the choices are very limited, which has brought about the argument that Nintendo is attempting to switch to all digital prizes.
The gold and platinum prizes for 2014 were released yesterday, to many users dismay. There were no Mario hats, card decks, or button pin collections. Gold/Platinum users have only the choice of downloading a digital game off a small list provided by Nintendo.
The biggest argument about this sudden change is the game list. Instead of exclusive games (such as the impossible-to-get-otherwise Ambassador's Program games that were given to early purchasers of the 3DS,) the list features games like Super Mario Bros. or The Adventure Of Link. Games that are common and cheap comparative to what Nintendo has given as rewards in the past.
