In celebration of tonight’s Switch reveal presentation, the Badge Arcade is taking players on a nostalgic trip through history with a handful of Nintendo console and software catchers! Today also marks the debut of GameCube, Wii U and R.O.B. badges, finally giving players the chance to complete their digital console collections. Unfortunately, there is an unacceptable omission of SNES badges from the many offerings today. SNES Virtual Console for Switch confirmed?

Don’t forget, there’s also a mass attack of Kirby badges to collect this week spanning the pink ball of fluff’s many adventures through Dream Land and beyond.



Free play: Yes

Domo arigato Mr. Roboto.



Four Super Mario Bros. catchers are warp piping back to the Mushroom Kingdom tomorrow. Be sure to grab what you can before then!


There are no special themes being offered this week.


Thank you badges return to the Arcade for the next few weeks! From now through January 26th at 2:00 a.m. PST, every dollar you spend will nab you one of these four dapper looking Arcade Bunny badges. Don’t miss out on boss bunny in all his mustached glory.

That’s all for today! Catch you tomorrow!
