‘Missions & Rewards’ Added to Nintendo Switch Online

Nintendo has released the Missions and Rewards update for Switch Online, which allows players to earn Platinum Points by playing games and more, similar to the Xbox Game Pass Quests system.

The promotion is only available to users with a Switch Online membership and provides tasks such as “playing software that supports online play,” “backing up saved data,” “playing the NES,” and more.

Users will earn Platinum Points – the same currency that has been used in the My Nintendo Store for years – which allow users to purchase certain physical items such as Nintendo-themed keychains and posters.

The update has released a number of new Switch Online-exclusive icons and backgrounds that are only available through the Platinum Points system and will be updated weekly. There will also be temporary events with special icons.

These digital items are fairly easy to find. Playing one online game per week earns you 30 Platinum Points, and the new badges shown so far are only worth 10 points each.

Accumulating physical rewards will take a little longer, although they are still within reach – for example, the Pokémon Legends: Arceus cable holder costs 400 points. By playing the online game, backing up saved data, playing the NES software, and playing the Game Trials software, users can earn 200 points per week.

The Missions and Rewards page can be accessed through the Nintendo Switch Online console app, and users can redeem their points for digital items at the same location or physical items at My Nintendo Store.
