And stupid expiration dates on coins!
For the first time in what seems like forever, My Nintendo has games you can download by redeeming gold coins! Gold coins are acquired by registering retail releases through the website or Switch dashboard and haven’t really had much use since the relaunch of Nintendo’s loyalty program.
On the 3DS, you’ll be able to nab Retro City Rampage: DX (80 Coins) and Toki Tori 3D (20 Coins) while for Wii U you can get Tengami (80 Coins) and XType Plus (30 Coins). There are also two 3DS themes available for gold coins with one based on Breath of the Wild (20 Coins) and the other Animal Crossing (20 coins). The games will be available until January 27, 2018 while the themes have differing dates (2/10/18 for BoTW and 12/1 for AC).
The website still lists the Switch section as “coming soon,” so who knows when that is going to become active. As neat as free games are, I pine for the days of Club Nintendo. I miss those physical rewards.
