We Finally Know What Nintendo Gold Points Are Really For

Gold MyNintendo Points Will Soon Be Redeemable On The Nintendo Switch eShop But It Feels Kind Of Pointless My Nintendo Announces Changes To Program In March

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. Mainly because there are sooooo many games out, and lots more coming. Gold Points are earned for Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and some Wii U games purchased physically or on the digital eShop (with some restrictions), so the more games you buy, the more coins you earn to potentially spend on new games. After shutting down Club Nintendo in 2015, the company launched My Nintendo the following year, but gone were the cool physical toys and such. The update will also be rolled out across both 3DS and even Wii U's eShop equivalents. That means players can use Gold Points from digital Wii U purchases for new Nintendo Switch games. That's impessive, to say the least.

Donegal expected to be worst hit with more snow forecast tonight
The national meteorological service, Met Éireann has issued a status yellow snow and ice warning for the whole of Ireland. Forecasters say "heavy sleet, hail, and snow showers" will follow a spell of rain and hill snow.


Plays: Switch, 3DS, Xbox One, Pokémon TCG, and Various Board Games. According to Nintendo, 60% of US Switch owners own Super Mario Odyssey and 55% own The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The PlayStaton 4 was close behind as well. Those can be exchanged for fixed discounts, like coupons toward a selection of games. The Switch is flying off the shelves but we haven't seen its full potential yet - imagine an era where we see a Doom or Wolfenstein 2 arrive date and day with other consoles and not months later. It's probably no surprise that it took Nintendo this long, because despite my exasperation, I'm still going to throw money at Nintendo whether they give me points for it or not. To infinity and beyond!
