Gameplay[edit]

The main game is similar to a crane game, allowing players to earn badges from a variety of catchers, the badges themselves themed after various Nintendo games and franchises, with new catchers replacing the present ones on a regular basis. Players use the claw by holding down the A button to move it into position, and releasing it to have the claw drop and grab anything beneath it and drop it into the hole below. After all their tries are used, players can keep any badges that dropped down. In order to play, players can purchase five "plays" for $1.00. Once per day, players can have five free plays on a practice machine collecting non-keepable badges, though players can earn bonus plays on the actual machine by collecting a bonus badge or catching at least 10 practice badges across all plays. The game may also give players a free play to mark an occasion. Players can use their plays on any available machine; they are not restricted to using them all on one.

From the main menu players can press Y to suspend the game and use their badges to decorate the HOME Menu. Players are also able to view their full badge collection by pressing X. Players may also view a Miiverse gallery of screenshots of player's HOME Menus, have questions answered, and be shown any current promotional HOME Menu themes obtainable by purchasing additional plays.
