Your Stars Balance: 999
Nintendo of Europe is preparing to upgrade the Nintendo of Europe website, the process of which will take place over the next few weeks. When complete, this will mean a number of changes to the look and functionality, so here's a look at what you can expect:
Firstly, the way the website looks will change. Some sections have simply been visually upgraded, but other parts will also work differently than before. In addition, certain sections will remain under construction, while other sections will disappear completely.
The largest section due to be improved is the Stars Catalogue, which will be unavailable for about two weeks during the upgrade. To ensure that Club Nintendo members don't lose any Stars during that period, however, Stars due expire at the end of October will instead expire at the end of November.
Other sections that will remain under construction when the new website launches are the Gift Finder and some Club Nintendo-exclusive features such as the Wishlist, Content Alerts and your public profile. If you're a regular user of these functions, rest assured they will return in the future.
As part of the website makeover, the navigation system will also change. The main navigation buttons at the top of each page will focus on the most important sections: Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, Wii, Games, Club Nintendo and Support. The navigation at the bottom of each page will be extended and give visitors direct access to certain sections that were sometimes hard to find.
The search feature has also been rebuilt completely, making it easier to find the content you're looking for, while the way we display videos has been improved. On top of that, it will be easier to share your favourite content on social networks like Twitter, Facebook and Google+. And finally, the way the website displays images and icons has been improved to be more compatible with smartphones and tablet computers.
We look forward to bringing you our new website and ask for your patience with any small technical issues that may arise immediately after launch. We will endeavour to fix any problems as soon as possible.
We hope you enjoy our new website!
