Recovering Badge Arcade addicts might want to call their sponsor today, as the business savvy pink ball of fluff is offering 50% off play bundles for the next week in celebration of the Arcade’s one year anniversary! The sale will be put to good use too, as top played catchers are set to be featured all week long, giving players another chance to secure some of the most sought after badges in the Arcade’s one year history. Check out the full gallery below:

Free play?: Yes, two of them! Though if you ask me, a full bundle of five would have felt more appropriate for such a momentous milestone.
Practice catcher:


Five catchers are leaving the Arcade tomorrow from various games in the Animal Crossing and Zelda series, as well as a set of sweet Swapnote launchers.

Remember, the 50% sale on play bundles is only available from now until Thursday, November 17th, at 2:59 a.m. PST! Be sure to grab all your favorites at a discount while you can.


Did you know that over the last year, there have been exactly 5,258 badges released in the Arcade? How many of those have you managed to collect? Let us know in the comments!

That’s all for today! Catch you tomorrow!
