An important notice about Nintendo Badge Arcade

On June 23rd, 2017, the last set of new badges will be added to Nintendo Badge Arcade. Starting June 30th, the badge catchers will continue to be updated regularly with previously released badges, and you will also be able to enjoy two free plays on the badge catchers each day. Thanks for playing!


Welcome to the wonderful world of badge collecting in Nintendo Badge Arcade, available to download from Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS family systems! In a fun and lively arcade, operated by an excitable rabbit, you can test your skills on a variety of crane game amusements, called badge catchers, and collect different badges of all shapes and sizes. Badges are based on your favourite games and series, and they can be used to decorate your system’s HOME Menu!

Press and hold either the A Button or the big yellow button on the Touch Screen to start the crane. Once you think it’s in the ideal position, let go to stop the crane and try to grab the badges below – you might even be able to nudge or tip other badges into the chute to win those as well!

Badge catchers are loaded with different sets of badges from games and series including Mario Kart, Splatoon, Animal Crossing and many more!

Use badges to jazz up your Nintendo 3DS HOME Menu – decorate your screen, place them in folders or make fun scenes! There are also badges that can be used in place of standard system icons used to access Nintendo eShop, StreetPass Mii Plaza, and other system software.

You can start playing Nintendo Badge Arcade for free, or you can use Nintendo eShop funds to purchase additional plays, allowing you more turns on the badge catchers and more opportunities to collect badges.

Each day you will receive two free plays on the badge catchers and five free plays on the practice catcher. The practice catcher is stocked with dummy badges that aren’t added to your collection but may even come with a bonus or super bonus that will earn you free plays on the badge catchers! Using the practice catcher regularly will improve your skills, and you’ll also get one free play for every 10 non-bonus dummy badges you collect.

You can start your badge collection today with Nintendo Badge Arcade, available to download from Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS family systems!
