The Club Nintendo replacement is called "N-Box," and it will be a subscription-type service. [1]

 

It is currently only available to those in the UK. [2] There has not yet been any information on releases for other countries.

 

The N-box will work like Loot Crate, which actually inspired the plan due to previous collaboration on an Amiibo box. The user gets a mystery box of various Nintendo-related items like clothing, toys, etc. once a month, depending on the chosen subscription plan. There will be 6, 9, and 12-month subscription plans. Each box is available on a one-off basis.

That's kind of lame you have to pay a subscription price, I thought it would be nice to have something in place of Club Nintendo where you spend points you get with games and digital downloads to get a subscription.

Ah well, I can just pick through what I want on EBay or something if I just have to have something that comes in one.
I never used Club Nintendo, but I have to agree.

The usual issue with subscription services is that you have to pay money for each month and take a chance getting stuff that you may not want. This isn't an issue if you like surprises, but many people like spending their cash on something they know they will like.

Most of the time, it's just easier (and less expensive) to get exactly what you want on a site like eBay. And similar to what you said, some people will sell stuff they don't want from the boxes on there, anyway.
