If you’re itching to cash in on some of your Platinum and Gold Points then you have some new options until August 24th or December 31st!


In preparation for Hey! Pikmin, the latest My Nintendo Rewards are all Pikmin themed. Want a Pikmin theme for your 3DS? For 20 Gold Points it’s yours. If you’re looking to dive into the series or download digital versions of the first and third games in the series, then discounts are available for them.

The original Pikmin is available on Wii U for a 30% discount in exchange of 50 Gold Points.

Pikmin 3 (with Nintendo Selects pricing) receives a 15% discount that just costs 300 Platinum Points — and the game is Wii U only, too. Wanting some downloadable content for Pikmin 3 instead? All three of the games’ DLC packs can be redeemed for 20 or 40 Gold Points — a total of 80 Gold Points instead of $8.97. All these rewards are available until August 24th at 11:00 p.m. PST.

The last reward is another Prima official guide — this time for Pikmin 3 to fit the theme. Like the other complete guides that are available, it’ll require 30 Gold Points and is available until December 31st at 11:00 p.m. PST.

Nintendo Summer of Play 2017 Tour

The perks of being a My Nintendo member are starting to appear at events. While we’ve seen the beginnings of this at Nintendo New York and possibly having a part in the invites that were sent out for the Nintendo Switch events, it’s now taking shape in branded swag.

The Nintendo Summer Play 2017 Tour that kicks off on June 9th will have a My Nintendo themed water bottle for members who check in while supplies last. To check in, you’ll want to download your My Nintendo QR Code and present it at applicable events.

Mii animations & survey

It’s been a little over a year since My Nintendo launched and a survey has been rolling out to members in waves. While there’s no place to comment on what we want (more downloadable games please), we can at least express our love for Samus and Fox McCloud. If you love Luigi’s Mansion, Mario Party, Rhythm Heaven/Rhythm Paradise, Brain Age/Brain Training, Nintendogs and more, then you can check those boxes off, too. No word if we’ll see these games again in the future or in what form, but at least Nintendo is gathering data of what is still beloved from its gaming catalogue. That said, I’ll take a Mario Party collection of the first three games with amiibo integration. Thanks, Nintendo.

Lastly, if you haven’t logged in lately, there’s a new animation on the main page with your account’s Mii. It turns out that our counterparts also love playing Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch. If you click on the television, you’ll turn it off and get a very upset Mii! If you don’t see it, keep refreshing the page. While you hunt for that, you may get lucky and earn an extra 10 Platinum Points from the fishing animation/secret mission that is on the site.

Will you be cashing in your points today? Have your eyes on the My Nintendo water bottle?
