Nintendo Badge Arcade (Japanese: バッジとれ〜るセンター) is a free-to-play application for Nintendo 3DS which allows players to collect badges for customizing their HOME Menu. It features content from a wide variety of Nintendo properties, with new badges added periodically, usually coinciding with the release or announcement of a related game. The available badges rotate regularly, with a large turnover once a week.

The arcade is filled with machines known as Badge Catchers, which are similar to real-world claw crane machines. At the start of the game, the player receives five free plays from the arcade’s host, a whimsical pink rabbit known as Arcade Bunny, who will always greet the player, introduce promotional events, and rave about his favorite Nintendo games. After the initial five free plays, players must either purchase them from the Nintendo eShop at the rate of US$1.00 per five plays, or win them from the Practice Catcher, which may be played once per day and rewards free plays for accruing 10 practice badges or acquiring certain bonus badges.

Fire Emblem series content

There are currently 24 available sets totaling 166 badges in the Fire Emblem category, all of which feature characters and content from Fire Emblem Fates. Twelve sets feature portraits of all the playable characters from all three routes as well as some important NPCs, while the other twelve feature map sprites of all the playable characters and some generic allies and enemies. The first batch of badges was released alongside each region’s respective launch of Fates.[1][2][3] In North America, another batch was released to celebrate the release of the Revelation campaign,[4] unlike in Japan, where those badges were made available much later.[5]

All of the badges in the Fire Emblem category can also be used in notes in the free-to-start application, Swapdoodle.
