Nintendo incentivizes Switch game sales with rewards program

  • Gold MyNintendo Points Will Soon Be Redeemable On The Nintendo Switch eShop But It Feels Kind Of Pointless

You can also still redeem your points for existing Wii U and Nintendo 3DS rewards. The ability to use gold points to buy your games will be limited to Switch games, at least for now, but you'll finally have a use for any points you may have sitting around in your My Nintendo collection. Users can take the gold points they've accumulated via the purchasing of eligible software - either on the Switch eShop or physically with a retail copy - and turn that into monetary value to spend on digital games thereafter. Those points are equivalent to $2.50; should you cash in on them, you'd get a cool $2.50 off your next eShop purchase. That suggests Switch game purchases will be much more affordable for customers with a huge Gold Points stockpile. Coins can be exchanged for discounts, or coupons towards a preselected list of games.

Given these percentages, it is not hard to conclude that users will need to spend a large amount of money to amass the amount of coins necessary to purchase a brand new game. I'd love to be able to buy skins for my Switch's home screen or other digital rewards for it.

If you've been hoping to get back into Worms W.M.D. on the Nintendo Switch then now might be the flawless time to do such a thing, as developer Team17 has officially released a brand new update for the game, and it adds a slew of new content.
