Updated My Nintendo Store has restocked exclusive online rewards and merchandise
Just like the boys, physical My Nintendo rewards are back in town.
If you’ve been waiting for a restock, now is the time, and there’s also a nifty Nintendo Switch game card holder up for grabs – it’s 600 Platinum Points and can carry up to eight games, with two covers included. Longtime Nintendo fans who remember the Club Nintendo days will surely remember the old 3DS game box. It is in the same direction.
Compared to many of you, I’m a strange man, but I could store my physical collection in this game rack; the Nintendo Switch arrived just as I was starting to go (mostly) digital-only.
Other physical rewards currently include a LEGO Super Mario keychain (400 Platinum Points), a Legend of Zelda Phone Ring Holder (500 Platinum Points), and a Metroid Dread Holographic Poster Set (1,000 Platinum Points). Heyyy big spender! I’m all exhausted.
I’m sure you already know the drill, but just in case: here are some Chris Carter tips for earning points. You can see how many points you have ready to go on this page.
Beyond some of those familiar physical rewards that can be redeemed for Nintendo Funny Money, there are also products to purchase with real money if you wish. This week, Nintendo launched an all-new My Nintendo Store with exclusive merchandise and apparel ranging from mugs and hats to shirts, hoodies and pillows.
You might not see anything that appeals to you just yet, but I thought the new online store was worth mentioning – it will naturally receive new items as new games are released. As for shipping, it’s free (with some restrictions) if you spend $50 or more at the store.
I also can’t forget to mention that this is the same week that Nintendo announced plans to end the Wii U and 3DS online store – a cost-cutting decision that likely won’t be swayed at this point. . If you browse the browser-based eShop, you’ll notice that it’s more Nintendo Switch-centric than before. “Legacy” platform listings can still be found if you know where to look (or just search for specific game names).
Well, here we go again. Time keeps slipping away for us retro gamers.
