Free points for almost everyone!
My Nintendo, the successor to Nintendo’s original rewards program, Club Nintendo, launched recently and brought with it a whole new points system to allow gamers to accrue points to spend on rewards.
However, some former Club Nintendo members are being gifted Platinum Points by Nintendo out of the blue. The company has been sending out emails to North American members that include a code for 200 free Platinum Points.
There doesn’t appear to be a European equivalent of the promotion yet. If you live in North America however and used to be a member of Club Nintendo, make sure to check your email.
Platinum Points can be used to redeem various prizes through the new system and are generally earned by completing one-off ‘missions’ or by completing weekly and daily tasks.
Nintendo have also released their first smartphone app, Miitomo, across the world. They are also working on a mysterious new device, currently only known as NX.
