Nintendo Switch Online Adds Missions And Rewards Features
Nintendo has announced the addition of missions and rewards to the Switch Online service. These new features will earn you Platinum Points that can be redeemed for items in the My Nintendo Store and “New Member Exclusive Badge Items” that you can collect and combine to create a new user badge. You will need a Nintendo Switch Online membership to access these features.
To access them, you can go to the Switch Online icon on the main screen and then select the Missions and Rewards tab. Nintendo says you’ll earn Platinum Points for “what you’re probably already doing with your Nintendo Switch Online membership,” like playing online or trying out a library of classic games.
After completing a few missions, you can return to the Nintendo Switch Online app to earn Platinum Points. In terms of icon elements, Nintendo says you’ll be able to choose from frames, symbols, or background elements to create your own custom user icon. Each month will have a different theme, and icon elements will be updated every week, with this month’s offer focusing on Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Super Mario Odyssey.
Nintendo has a busy 2022 planned, with a plethora of games coming to the console soon. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are scheduled for late 2022, and you can expect Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes and Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers to arrive on Nintendo Switch Sports in the near future. Or you could watch more anime now that the Crunchyroll app is available.
