My Nintendo Gold Points Can Be Used To Pay for Nintendo Switch Online Subscription

Gold points will have a new use from tomorrow.

Nintendo Switch Online

After several months of waiting, tomorrow Nintendo Switch Online will finally debut, the payment service of the console that will allow you to play online and enjoy other benefits.

If you plan to subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online in the coming days, take into account that your previous purchases will help you obtain the service. What we mean is that your golden My Nintendo coins will have a new use.

Nintendo confirmed that we can use the coins to cover the subscription cost to Nintendo Switch Online. Which is good news for players who use that rewards system and already have a good amount of gold coins in their accounts.

The coins will work in the same way as when buying a digital game. However, they cannot be used to activate the automatic renewal of the service. On the other hand, we remind you that Nintendo Switch Online will have a free trial of 7 days.

The service opens tomorrow with advantages such as saves in the cloud for a wide variety of titles. However, keep in mind that games like Pok√©mon Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee! and Splatoon 2 will not have this function.

Another important detail to take into account is that your data in the cloud will be eliminated if you stop paying for the service. Nintendo Switch Online will also offer NES games with online support.

Finally, you may be interested to know that free-to-play games will not require a subscription.
