I just downloaded it today... I wasn't very interested in the badges but I must admit that the pink rabbit and his animation quality got me interested immediately ahahah seriously just look at it o-o

Anyway, has anyone bought any badges yet? It seems like an interesting concept but I probably won't be buying any in the future ;o

I've spent $6 so far. $4 was spent to get the set of Pikmin launcher badges, the other $2 was so I could get a Super Mario Bros. Underground Home Menu Theme. That's the great thing about the Nintendo Badge Arcade being a Free-to-Start game though. You don't have to spend a dime on it if you don't want to. By playing the Practice Catcher you can earn free plays, and they occasionally give out free plays as well, including today. If there's a badge you really, really want, maybe consider spending a dollar or two so you can get it, but otherwise don't worry about spending money on it and just enjoy the free plays you can earn.

Yes, and I'm not proud of it. I got some of the starting badges they had, and then I told myself I would stop after the Pokemon ones...but then they put out Majora's Mask badges and I just couldn't resist. It's a huge waste because I only put them on folders, and I only have three folders, but sometimes I can't stop myself. I have 64 badges now.

I wish they didn't look so out of place in the home screen or else I would use them outside of just folders. It's also really dumb that the app launcher badges don't just cover the corresponding app, but instead you have to just hide the original icon away somewhere.

Anyway, yeah, it's alright.

I haven't spent any money and I've gotten 39 different badges.

I agree with you about the launcher badges. I like the look of them, but I had to create a whole other folder just for them.

I spent $1 but someone bought me 20 free plays. In total that's about $6 or $7 cause of tax but it was mainly cause I reallllly wanted the BoxBoy launchers and Blathers & museum stuff badges. Only to find them back in rotation so soon now I'm just getting by with the free plays. I've got like 90 something badges cause I like going for the ones that'll net me the most for my play. That and I love the fruit Tomodachi badges.

I caved and spent another $3 so I could collect the rest of the masks from Majora's Mask 3D, which ironically was the only mask I missed. Though in doing so, I noticed that the Great Fairy Mask actually is not available as a badge, so it's impossible to have a complete set,

I really really want the ACNL badges, but I refuse to spend money on them since they are just decoration. I've been using my free plays though. It annoys me a bit that it is pretty much just Nintendo advertising. Like, the last few days has been endless talk of Yoshi's Wooly World. It's just not something I care for. It just seems like one more of Nintendo's "insert money --> get adverting" things.

I don't know why, but there's something kind of fun about it. Though yeah, I would never spend money on it. Still, there is some charm in collecting badges.

Also, that bunny is very cute. I hope badges with him on it come out soon.

Well, it's certainly not as bad as it could have been. It does at least involve a fair amount of skill, rather than being purely luck-based; you can collect a decent amount of badges using only the free plays.

"It annoys me a bit that it is pretty much just Nintendo advertising."
Yes, there's that too.

Incidentally, if anyone else is interested, some helpful person with the Japanese version - which has already been out for a year - has compiled a list of all the badge sets. Forewarned is forearmed!

Nevermind, this rabbit got old very... very... quickly. Talks WAY too much. I also hate how all the responses to him are sort of sarcastic and rude, sort of makes me feel like the "I'd like to spend money!" options are nice and friendly but the "No thanks" options are like "Actually, uh, yeah, no.", liker jerk responses. Idk, I may be the only one who gets that vibe xx'

Oh and yeah, the whole advertisement thing too. Like they're not even trying to be subtle xD

I think the game is a low blow and a real sellout move by nintendo.

I don't think the game is overpriced, but I do think it's not worth the payment with they have available.

I appreciate their addition of a free play, but it is also sort of a low blow.

However, the game is sometimes fun and I did shell out quite a bit of money for the animal crossing set of badges, and it encouraged me to purchase the animal crossing theme as well.
I really just wanted the Digby, but said I can't have him and not have his sister, and did the same with Cyrus and Reese before getting everybody. I just didn't want to break up the family. x)


I haven't touched the game ever since then, however I probably would play again if I heard they had something interesting that I would like.

I really wanted some Peach badges, but didn't see too many.

This morning's Practice was bogus. They gave me a board where the pieces would be hard to grab, and there was only six on a board. Usually the Practices have lots of pieces that are easy to get.

"Yes, there's that too."


Yes, you may not care for Yoshi's Woolly World, but others, such as myself, love that game to death. Two sides of the same coin. Another example, where as one sees advertising, others may see information. You're not required to spend money if you don't want to, Nintendo's just giving you the option. Those who have such as myself do so because we wanted to, whether it be because we wanted a certain badge set to decorate our Home Menu with and give it a more personal touch, or because we wanted to get the special Home Menu Theme being offered, or for a completely different and separate reason altogether.

Speaking of the Badge Arcade, today is a good day for it. The Badge Bunny is giving out a Free Play, plus with the Practice Catcher today, it's easy to get 20 or more badges, one of which seems like it will always be a Super Bonus granting 3 Free Plays. Got 5 Free Plays on my main system and 6 Free Plays on my original system. It's Super Mario Maker themed. Just crash headlong into Lakitu, hope it causes a chain reaction to start with, then try to pick Lakitu up at first. Today is also the last day for the current set of Splatoon badges, which include 8 Launcher Badges.

Today felt like an appology for yesterday's practice catcher.

I can confirm that you, Forte, are either lucky, or I am just the joke of the luck world, because I didn't even get a blue Practice Badge. >_>


...In fact, I've not got a Red or Blue in roughly two weeks. And I do the Practice daily.

"I am interested to know how often there are free plays."

Because it's so new stateside still, there's no known pattern available for the Free Plays yet, but typically at least two or three times a week so far it seems. That of course is not counting the Free Plays you can earn from the Practice Catcher though, so it's worth checking in at least once a day.

Speaking of, for all who care, the Arcade is giving away a bonus Animal Crossing: New Leaf: Festive Fun Home Menu Theme. It doesn't change the music or the icons at all, but the bottom screen depicts the inside of a house where garland and Christmas ornaments and candy canes have been hung up, while the top screen depicts a snow-filled night sky. The Theme is given to you when you spend $2 to buy 10 plays in the Arcade. It'll be available until December 7th at 2:59 A.M.

Sorry for double-posting, but at the time of this writing it's too late to edit my last post. The Badge Arcade is giving another Free Play out today.
The Practice Catcher is Super Mario Maker, and it's a little tricky, but still it's possible to clear it and get over 10 Practice Badges. Crash headlong into Mario. This should also cause Bowser's flame to be knocked down, which in turn will cause the two stone blocks badges on the right of Mario to fall in the pit. Depending on the angle, Mario will either fall into said pit or land on the ground. If he lands on the ground, try to pick him up. On the way to the right side of the screen, Mario should get caught on the Piranha Plant, knocking it to the right and into another set of stone blocks. Bowser will be the next badge to get. Because of his size, you can't get too good of a grip on him. Do your best to stop the crane above him and lower the arm. One of two things hopefully will then happen, those being the crane picks him up but drops him pretty quickly, causing Bowser to bounce to the left and into the pit from earlier, or he'll actually stay in place. The Warp Pipe is the hardest badge to get, because it falls directly into a hole, but the edge of the pipe keeps it from going all the wray down into the pit, and you may not get it. If you can, great. If not, oh well, you tried. Remember, you can do this in the real Badge Catcher machine, too.
