Four indie games are now available as My Nintendo Gold Point rewards.
Nintendo has updated the My Nintendo rewards programme with four Nintendo 3DS games that can be redeemed in full using gold points. My Nintendo usually restricts its offers to discounts, so picking up a game without the need for extra cash is something of a rarity.
Pick of the bunch is the mighty Mighty Switch Force 2. WayForward’s action-platformer – and its equally fun predecessor – are perfect 3DS games that use the console’s stereoscopic display to great effect.
Also available is Drinkbox Studio’s inventive adventure game, Severed. The 3DS might not be the best platform on which to play the game, but its quality still shines through.
Here’s the full lineup of included titles. At the time of writing the rewards are only available in Europe.
My Nintendo Rewards – EU
Gold Point Rewards
- Mighty Switch Force 2 – 50 Gold Points
- Noitu Love: Devolution – 90 Gold Points
- Severed – 150 Gold Points
- Radiohammer – 55 Gold Points
And if you’d rather play Severed on the Switch, you can now trade in Gold points against digital games via the Nintendo eShop.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
