Nintendo has relaunched its official UK website and as well as a flashy new look, the Stars Catalogue is, at long last, actually worth your time.
Gone are the shite wallpapers and pointless ringtones. The now-named Club Nintendo section lets you swap your hard earned Star points for good gifts like Nintendo keyrings, a sweet gold Zelda statue and other Nintendo memorabilia.
Best of all, if you don't want any Nintendo tat, you can simply swap your Star points for Wii points in the Wii Points shop, to then spend on Virtual Console games. Sweet.
"The new site endeavours to make detailed Nintendo product information accessible to a wider audience, with clear access to information about Nintendo's current hardware and software, as well as providing a rich archive of gaming experiences past."
Other improvements include "an improved search engine will help visitors find games of their interest more easily, while special interest sites such as Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and Touch! Generations can be directly accessed." And Nintendo has overhauled the support section, too.
You can find the new site over on Nintendo.co.uk.
Good luck with getting on their right now though - it appears to be experience a few teething problems. We're sure it'll be fully up and running soon.
