Switch games can soon be bought with My Nintendo coins

I wouldn't be surprised of Nintendo gave just a little more coins for digital purchases to push gamers towards the eShop-after all, Nintendo doesn't have to pay for cartridges, game boxes, and covers when you buy digitally. After shutting down Club Nintendo in 2015, the company launched My Nintendo the following year, but gone were the cool physical toys and such. No, I don't really want a discount on a Wii U game or a five-year-old 3DS game. Bringing Switch content into the fold is the latest improvement and will undoubtedly be popular. Starting in March, My Nintendo members will be able to put their gold points toward buying actual Switch games, a huge step up from the current rewards on offer.

The company has priced each Gold Point at one United Kingdom pence which means that users will need a lot of points to get any substantial discounts.

There is no word yet on the ability to redeem Platinum Points for anything on the Switch, but Nintendo will probably add this feature some point down the road, as many people still earn and use Platinum Points daily.

Anyone with a Nintendo Account can join My Nintendo for free.

The reward change is timed to coincide with the existing expiration of My Nintendo Gold coins earned during the Switch launch. That suggests Switch game purchases will be much more affordable for customers with a huge Gold Points stockpile. In the meantime, fans of the Umbra Witch will have Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 on the Nintendo Switch to play at home or on the go. You'll also get a special discount during your birthday month.
