"Starting in early March, you'll be able to spend any Gold Points you've accumulated in My Nintendo when purchasing Nintendo Switch software from Nintendo eShop on your device, or even via this website!"

My Nintendo users acquire Gold Points by registering specific digital games for Nintendo Switch, Wii U, or Nintendo 3DS with the service, as well as physical Switch games. In an announcement by Nintendo, the company has stated that beginning in March, My Nintendo members will be able to put their My Nintendo coins (also called Gold Points) towards buying Switch games through the Nintendo eShop. It's a decent deal for Switch owners who have a mostly digital collection and those who plan on buying several games digitally in the future. Coins can be exchanged for discounts, or coupons towards a preselected list of games. For digital purchases, you get points worth five percent of the price paid (not including discounts or points used). Find new Elements and Abilities, and mix them for more destructive power - Beat your enemies with plasma-coated spiral rockets, scrap them with electric mines, or overwhelm them off with devastating lasers. But you do have to give it to Take-Two; putting out L.A. Noire after all this time with new features took some effort - so I'm a little more enthusiastic about how they'll handle the Switch.

Plays: Switch, 3DS, Xbox One, Pokémon TCG, and Various Board Games. In other words, if you earned some points today, those points will fall out of your balance if you don't use them by this time next year.
