A new Nintendo eShop promotion rewards players with Double Gold points for buying Switch games.
The Nintendo eShop Double Gold Points Fest has launched in today in Europe. During the promotion, selected games give customers double the usual amount of My Nintendo Gold Points on selected games. In some cases, this is the equivalent of getting up to 10% of your money back, albeit in Nintendo’s digital currency.
The first games to be included are Square Enix’s masterful JPG, Dragon Quest XI, the brilliant Snipperclips – Cut it out, together!, and puzzle adventure, Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy.
Three new games will be added to the promotion every Thursday until July 30, 2020. We’re not sure if the promotion is coming to North America but update this page if we get confirmation.
Nintendo eShop Double Gold Points Fest – Week 1
- Snipperclips – Cut it out, together! – 200 EU / 180 UK
- Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition – 600 EU / 500 UK
- Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition – 400 EU / 350 UK
And what can you do with Gold Points? Well, they can be redeemed against future game purchases on the Nintendo eShop. Recent titles we’ve enjoyed include Star Wars Episode 1: Racer and The Eternal Castle.
If we’re honest, we’d rather a nice big eShop sale. But if you were thinking of picking up one of the included games, the Gold Points Fest is a nice bonus.
