Earlier today we shared the My Nintendo rewards that are on offer in Japan, with plenty of coins required to unlock exclusive downloads, discounts and DLC. The question is, how easy is it to earn these coins?

Well, the graph below shows that the options for Platinum Coins are certainly varied, with Nintendo Account and Miitomo at the heart of earning that currency; daily interaction with the latter smart device app is the quickest way to access some goodies.

The gold coins are solely earned by purchasing eShop downloads - bear in mind this only applies to games you buy, not DLC or 3DS HOME Themes. For reference 1000 Yen is around $9.
