Did you know…?


That you can sign up for cool benefits?


You can ask a parent or guardian to help you set up a Nintendo Network ID and a free Nintendo Account, then link the two to start earning and redeeming My Nintendo points. If you sign up for My Nintendo, you can also get birthday discounts, reward offers, and more! More info on setting up a child account can be found here.


That you can play free game demos?


It’s true! Nintendo eShop is a one-stop shop for downloadable games and entertainment. You can find free game demos like the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Special Demo Version. You can also find free-to-start games, like the Nintendo Badge Arcade game. 


That you can share your gaming fun with other fans? 


Nintendo fans have their own online gaming community called Miiverse, where you can post screenshots and drawings, get gaming news and tips, and more. There’s even a Play Nintendo Community, where you can find all sorts of fun and surprises!


That you can use amiibo with your system?


You can use amiibo figures and amiibo cards on the New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems via built-in amiibo support. If you have the original Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL or Nintendo 2DS systems, you can use the Nintendo 3DS NFC Reader/Writer accessory (sold separately) to add cool content to compatible games. For example, the Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo game lets you invite certain characters to visit or move to your town, depending on the compatible amiibo used!


That you can watch videos?


Check out the latest movies and videos right from your system*, like the Play Nintendo Show on the Play Nintendo YouTube channel—the official Nintendo channel for kids and families!
