Since the release of the Switch in March past year, Nintendo has released some big hits when it comes to first party games. That's right, if you've got Gold Points accumulating you will soon be able to put these towards Nintendo Switch games. Players who don't mind multitasking will be ale to keep up with Lannie, using strategy and speed all at once to conquer the arena.
Starting in "early March", you'll be able to redeem My Nintendo Gold Points for Switch games and downloadable content, Nintendo announced today.

Brexit to hit north-east and Midlands hardest, says secret analysis

Buy a qualifying digital game for Nintendo Switch, Wii U, or Nintendo 3DS family systems or a physical game for the Nintendo Switch system. A free My Nintendo account is required to collect points and utilize them for purchases.
To give you an example: If you spend $50 on an eShop game, you'll receive 250 gold points in return.
Gold points you've earned will now expire at the end of the 12th month, so if you buy a game on say April 1, you have until April 30 of next year to use those points before they're lost forever. So, spend £40 and you'll get 200 Gold Points, which are then worth £2 off your next purchase. According to Nintendo, 60% of US Switch owners own Super Mario Odyssey and 55% own The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
