New My Nintendo Rewards Include Real-Life Smash Bros. Invitations

My Nintendo just added a new batch of rewards, and one of them brings an iconic piece of Super Smash Bros. to your home or office.

Even those who casually follow Nintendo know the importance of a seemingly simple white letter with a red seal. We’ve watched for years as various titans of gaming received the invite (and were often faked out when a different character appeared to grab the letter at the last second). The Smash invite might be the most recognizable symbol of the franchise now, matched only by the Smash Ball and Sandbag. So it makes sense to see Nintendo give the invite actual merch.

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Invitation Greeting Card Set includes three 5″ x 6.5″ cards bearing the Smash logo. There are three white envelopes as well, and a sheet of three stickers that emulate the invite’s red wax seal.

The invite set is now available on the Nintendo Store website, but there’s a caveat. Prospective buyers must have a My Nintendo account and a certain amount of Platinum Points saved up. If you’ve got 400 Platinum Points, you can redeem them for a code that will unlock the Smash invite set to purchase. We say “purchase” because, even though the item itself has no cost, you will need to pay for shipping.

The set is only available until March 8, but is very likely to go out of stock quickly. If you want to invite friends to Smash (the game, you weirdos), grab a set now.
