New Free Games Available Now On My Nintendo
3DS and Wii U owners can get another batch of titles for free.
A couple of new rewards are now available on My Nintendo. Unlike the usual assortment of game discounts, this batch consists of a handful of full titles, which can be downloaded for free from the service for a limited time.
A total of four free games are now up for grabs for 3DS and Wii U. 3DS owners can get Star Wars Pinball and the puzzle-platformer Mighty Switch Force 2 for 50 Gold points apiece, while Woah Dave is available for 40 Gold points. The lone Wii U title this time is the acclaimed futuristic racer Fast Racing Neo, and it can be yours for 110 Gold points.
All of the aforementioned rewards are available until May 23, giving you quite a bit of time to take advantage of the offer. My Nintendo members can still redeem their points on the latest batch of Mario rewards as well, which consist of discounts on a handful of recent and classic titles like Paper Mario: Sticker Star, New Super Mario Bros. 2, and Super Mario Bros. DX.
Since last fall, free games have periodically been available to download from My Nintendo. This marks the fourth selection of free titles to be offered through the program. Previous freebies included the original Mighty Switch Force, Toki Tori 3D, Retro City Rampage DX, and Gunman Clive HD Collection, among others. You can find the full list of current rewards on the My Nintendo website.
While Nintendo has yet to introduce Switch-specific rewards to the service, earlier this month the company gave Switch owners the ability to purchase certain games with their My Nintendo points. Members can choose to use their Gold points toward select Switch games when purchasing them either from the Eshop or Nintendo's website. You can read more about how that works here.
