Nintendo has just announced that Missions and Rewards have been added to Nintendo Switch Online.
These items can be accessed by navigating to the NSO icon on the Switch home screen and then selecting the Missions & Rewards section. Here you’ll find a list of available missions that are related (as Nintendo says) to “things you’re probably already doing with your Nintendo Switch Online membership, like playing online or trying out a library of classic games.”
So what do you get for participating in these missions? Platinum points, that’s what. They can be exchanged for items in the My Nintendo Store as usual, as well as “new member-exclusive badge items that you can collect and combine to create a new user badge.”
What are icon elements, you ask? These are the frames, symbols, and backgrounds you can use to customize your user icon on your Switch console. It’s an icon that people also see when you’re online, so there’s motivation to make yours as unique as possible.
Each month will have a different theme and badge items will be updated every week – for now we have Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March birthdays) and Super Mario Odyssey themed items to earn.
