If you’ve had Nintendo Switch Online since the beginning in NA (or just live in Europe) you may know/remember Game Vouchers, the device by which you pay a cool $100 for two game vouchers that can be spent on any Nintendo games of your choice. Since the games are often $60, that means you save about $20 total – it’s a little circumlocutory, but a way to save money and if you’re buying a lot of Nintendo games can help make up for your NSO purchase in the first place. And a leaked video (which may be from a soon to happen Nintendo Direct?) suggests they’re coming back to North America after a long absence (the service ended in NA in July 2019).
Spicy, more fuel for the February Nintendo Direct fire (are people thinking this week or next? not been following)
Some intern slipped up and unlisted a return of game vouchers for Nintendo Switch Online. They haven't been in North America for four years

The video is very much of Nintendo’s usual aesthetic and professional quality, and was shared on the company’s official YouTube channel before hurriedly being taken down, so there’s no reason to doubt its authenticity, especially since it shows recent releases like Fire Emblem Engage or imminent titles like Bayonetta Origins. We’ll have to see if the voucher program is coming back at some point, but it certainly seems like it will soon.
