This Sunday, the Nintendo Switch will be two years old, meaning it's been two whole years since we first treated our eyeballs to that opening shot in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If you live in Europe, this means that the My Nintendo programme will soon stop accepting registrations for any games that launched alongside the console on 3rd March 2017.
As you may be aware, My Nintendo Gold Points from the physical versions of Nintendo Switch games must be redeemed within two years of the official release date, regardless of when you bought the game itself. We've listed every Switch game that was released at retail on the console's launch day below (any games purchased digitally will have automatically collected your Gold Points).
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
- Super Bomberman R
- Skylanders Imaginators
- Just Dance 2017
Of course, as the weeks go by, other games will also start to be unavailable for points registration. If you need to double check the release date for any of your games, you can do so by searching for it in our mega game database.
As a reminder, the North American My Nintendo rewards programme only allows customers to register a game for one year from its release date. The likes of Zelda and 1-2-Switch are therefore now unavailable to register.
If you haven't claimed those points, make sure to do it this week. We'll leave you with some instructions on how to do exactly that:
- Insert the game card into the Nintendo Switch console.
- Highlight the game icon on your console's HOME Menu and press the + Button
- Select “My Nintendo Rewards Programme”
- Select “Earn Points (game card version only)”
