Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can take advantage of the Missions and Rewards program. Discover how to do it.
Since its release in 2017, Nintendo had never introduced any system of trophies or missions on its Nintendo Switch, even though there have already been such systems on PlayStation and Xbox for many years. While fans have been patiently awaiting the arrival of an achievement system, Nintendo is upping the ante and officially announcing “Missions and Rewards”.
This is a brand new program that does not reward your skills in certain games, but rather your use of the Nintendo Switch Online membership. Indeed, it is exclusively reserved for members, whether they have access to the additional pack or just the classic formula. Find out below how to activate the missions and claim the associated rewards.
How do I earn rewards?
If you are already a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber, then go to the application dedicated to the service via the home page of your console. From here, you can click on the “Missions and Rewards” tab. This will redirect you to a page explaining that you can now earn platinum points by completing certain missions related to the Nintendo Switch Online subscription.
To do this, nothing simpler. You will need to play online, or use the cloud for save data; simple actions that you probably already do on a daily basis. Once a mission is completed, return to the application to claim your points, and redeem them for exclusive characters, frames and backgrounds for your profile icon. Be careful, be sure to use your points before their expiry date (six months after obtaining them)!
The rewards catalog is updated weekly, every Tuesday. And every month, a new game is featured in the store. For the month of March, you will find for example objects related to super mario odyssey. Note that there is a special tab for Animal Crossing: New Horizons which gives you access each month to the icon of the inhabitants whose birthday it is.
Two subscriptions at your disposal
As a reminder, the Nintendo Switch Online subscription allows you to play online and access certain retro NES and SNES games, in addition to other advantages. It is available for €19.99 per year for an individual account, and €34.99 per year for a family account.
For double the price, either €39.99 or €69.99, you can access the additional pack, which allows you to play N64 and Mega Drive games on your Switch, and access new additional content ( DLC in Animal Crossing and Remastered Track Pass on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe).
