Spring has sprung in the Badge Arcade! The ultra rare butterfly Nikki badge flutters back in celebration of the season, as well as fancy Mario sporting his Sunday best. Painterly pastel colored Pokémon are in bloom, too, featuring never before seen designs for those pocket pals sprinkled with sugar, spice, and everything nice.

For those suffering seasonal allergies, Splatoon badges will ink their way into the Arcade celebration of the sequel’s upcoming Global Testfire event this weekend. Be sure to check in frequently throughout the week if you intend to collect the entire set.

EVERYTHING NEW

FREE PLAY: YES

Don’t forget to take a moment and smell the roses!

PRACTICE CATCHER

FINAL CHANCE

Probably because you didn’t blow hard enough, all of today’s NES remix badges are being ejected from the Arcade tomorrow morning. Be sure to make Little Mac, Samus, and Pit yours before the day is through!

SPECIAL THEME: YES

In light of the breezy new season, a special promotional theme is back up for grabs! From now through March 30th at 3:00 a.m. PST, spend $2 on ten plays to secure this wonderfully cherry blossomed Super Mario Bros. theme.

THANK-YOU PROMOTION: YES

From now through April 6th at 3:00 a.m. PST, every dollar you spend will nab you one of these four serious looking Arcade Bunny badges. Don’t miss out on those stern faced boss bunny badges, no doubt angry over all the cash you neglected to fork over during last week’s Tank Trooper invasion.

That’s all for today! Catch you Thursday!
