I wonder if that means they're thinking of doing other arcade releases too, such as VS SMB or Mario Kart Arcade
Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

Should Nintendo have sent me the Download code via Club Nintendo or what? Do I need to contact Nintendo customer service and tell them I didn't receive the Download token? Thanks.
