You can now buy Switch games with your Gold Coins

Nintendo seems to be broadening its horizons with the development of a subscription service and adding many new features to its online store in the meantime. You're not the only one - it appeared that the Switch was resetting how much time had been spent playing games since on or before March 2, 2017. Gold points will be applied on checkout on the eShop or on Nintendo's website. The points are awarded at a 5% rate and each point is worth one cent in US Dollars. This purchase will earn players 300 Gold Points, resulting in $3.00 of redeemable points available for their next purchase.

If you're a member of My Nintendo, you'll earn Gold points automatically for purchasing Switch, 3DS, and Wii U games from the Eshop.

Nintendo acknowledged play activity information is "displaying incorrectly" in a tweet, but also made it clear no data is being lost. It's important to note that physical purchases will only get you one percent of their Nintendo eShop price.

My Nintendo Gold Points expire after 12 months on the last day of the month in which they were earned.

Purchases of Nintendo 3DS or Wii U DLC do not qualify to earn Gold Points.

Existing gold coin balances will remain the same, and physical games can still only be registered once.
