Nintendo Points are Nintendo's digital download currency, which can be redeemed in the Wii Shop Channel for Virtual Console games, WiiWare games or new Wii Channels. Alternatively they can also be used in the Nintendo DSi Shop if you have a Nintendo DSi system. Please note however that Nintendo Points cannot be used with a Nintendo 3DS system.
Nintendo Points can be purchased at retail, directly in the Wii Shop Channel or - if you're a Club Nintendo member - even right here on this website, in the Nintendo Points Card Shop.
Once you have redeemed a Nintendo Points Card in the Wii Shop Channel the points will be added to your Wii Shop Channel account as Wii Points. And that's when you can start browsing the shop for games and applications you like, such as Wii Channels, WiiWare games or Virtual Console games!
Take a look at our Nintendo Points tutorial video to see how you can redeem your Nintendo Points and enjoy Nintendo's digital download services.
