The much-touted new multiplatform account for Nintendo is already open for registration. Dubbed as the Nintendo Account, fans can now register for an account using any of the following channels: Nintendo Network ID, Facebook, Google+ or Twitter.

At this stage, this is pretty much a signup period, as there are not a lot of activities and events linked to the new account, Polygon reported. The good thing about having a Nintendo Account is that it will be linked and used to the My Nintendo rewards program, where players can earn points and even free Nintendo-themed items in the long run.

For those who want to jump the gun when it comes to Nintendo’s planned smartphone integration, the Nintendo Account will also be used in tandem with Miitomo, the first smartphone app from Nintendo coming in March. Coincidentally, the pre-registration for Miitomo has already started as well.

Come March 11, those in North America can also expect a lineup of Nintendo 3DS releases via the Nintendo Selects lineup. TechnoBuffalo reported that this is a move that Nintendo of America adapted from Europe, which re-releases of Nintendo titles via a physical release but for a discounted price.

Nintendo of America still has to confirm this new deal, but according to the source, this was prematurely leaked by Games Plus, a Canadian games retailer. A dozen titles will be up for grabs for US$29.99 (approx. AU$41.89). These will come for both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS.

Two franchises dominate the pack, as there are three “Donkey Kong” titles and four “Super Mario” games. These are “Donkey Kong Country Returns,” “Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze” and “Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.” For the “Super Mario titles, the list includes “Super Mario All-Stars,” “Super Mario Galaxy 2,” “Super Mario 3D World” and “Mario Party: Island Tour.”

Fans who are also looking to play “Pikmin 3,” “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D” and “Yoshi’s New Island” should take advantage of this cheaper offer for the game. For now, this is still a rumour until Nintendo confirms the official promo.
