Revealed on Thursday, Nintendo announced that they are finally adding digital games and content to their My Nintendo Rewards. Previously a replacement to the popular Club Nintendo, My Nintendo was launched along side the Nintendo Switch although there weren’t any rewards for early adopters. The announcement reads:
My Nintendo members already earn Gold Points by buying qualifying games. Soon they’ll be able to redeem Gold Points for eligible digital games and content for the Nintendo Switch™ system, too.
Here’s how it will work:
• Buy a qualifying digital game for Nintendo Switch, Wii U™, or Nintendo 3DS™ family systems or a physical game for the Nintendo Switch system.
• Earn Gold Points worth 5% of the amount you pay, not including any points or discounts used*.
• You can then redeem those points on your next eligible digital purchase (including games and DLC) for the Nintendo Switch system from Nintendo eShop or Nintendo.com.
Of course, you can also continue to redeem your points for existing My Nintendo rewards for Wii U or Nintendo 3DS systems.
Stay tuned for more details!
The lineup of games and content has yet to be announced. On another note, owners of the Switch since launch may need to check their My Nintendo accounts as it seems that many players who redeemed their software for coins since day one have until the end of March to redeem them.
