There's a My Nintendo Kirby contest with a really cute prize pack


It runs through May 2, so you have time

Nintendo is currently running a (US-based) My Nintendo Kirby contest for a Kirby prize pack, which comes with a lot of different goodies: a Club Mocchi-Mocchi plush, a Forgotten Land tote, a food kanji throw, two 24oz branded water bottles, and a “big face adjustable hat” (as well as a warp star hat in the old school style).

As is the case with all of these contests, you’re paying platinum points for prize entries. Everyone can enter up to three times, for 10 platinum each (so a maximum of 30). You click a few buttons, set it and forget it, and that’s it. Nintendo says there will be 10 winners in the end, and having done the maximum every time and never won: your chances seem slim. But you can hope!

As a reminder, you can find our full Platinum Point guide here, which has been updated with details on weekly missions: bookmark it for when you need quick points for a reward. A handful of points is incredibly easy to get, as that’s basically just 15 minutes with Super Mario Run, or a quick sign-on to the 3DS or Wii U 3Shop. Also remember that any shipments are bundled together, so you can pay a flat rate for multiple items instead of paying it each time. Just know that items go out of stock on My Nintendo frequently, and some are never restocked.

If you’re curious, the approximate retail value (ARV) on each of these boosted items is nuts! “My Nintendo exclusive Kirby and the Forgotten Land tote (ARV: $92.00 USD), one (1) Club Mocchi Mocchi Kirby Mega Plush stuffed toy (ARV $42.99 USD), two (2) Kirby Pink Puff Plastic 24 oz. Water Bottle (ARV: $39.98 USD), one (1) Kirby Big Face Adjustable Hat (ARV $34.56 USD), one (1) Kirby Food Kanji Throw (ARV $29.99 USD) and one (1) Kirby Warp Star Embroidered Hat (ARV $16.99 USD).
