Once the new Gold Points update rolls around, players can then use their collected Gold Points on an "eligible digital purchase" for the Switch, which includes "games and DLC" from the Nintendo eShop, Nintendo's US page reports.

Of course, you can also continue to redeem your points for existing My Nintendo rewards for Wii U or Nintendo 3DS systems.

Nintendo announced that its virtual reward currency, which is earned by registering physical and digital games, will be valid as eShop credit in the coming months.

Each Gold Point is then worth 1p in the United Kingdom or 1 Euro cent.

Players can earn Gold Points by purchasing Nintendo hardware and software, as well as through playing Nintendo apps on their smart devices.

Regular digital buyers are about to get a boost from My Nintendo.

They're valid for a year, expiring at the end of a given month, which means that you'll only have a small window of opportunity to turn the points earned from the Switch's launch back into cash. We'll update this post if and when Nintendo confirms My Nintendo Gold Points can be used locally, although users with foreign Nintendo accounts should have no problem accessing the program.

With a bit more elaboration, here's how new Nintendo rewards will function.
