    How badges work!

    Badges are decorative icons for the HOME Menu screen which are only available in Nintendo Badge Arcade. You can easily place and move them using your stylus.

    You can use some badges as an icon to start up a program. They come in all shapes and sizes. Don't worry, I'll always let you know when we've got new badges in stock!

    Different crane games every week!

    Use badges with Themes to decorate your HOME Menu

    By combining badges with different Themes, you can create your very own, one of a kind HOME Menu screen. There will be some original themes that will only be available by winning them in Nintendo Badge Arcade*.

    *Must have game credits to play. Credits can be won in the practice machines or purchased at $1.00 for five credits.

    Your very own HOME Menu

    You can share your HOME Menu on Miiverse or show it off using Image Share. If we like what you post, we might feature it for the world to see!
