New Freebie For Switch Online Subscribers Now Available
Grab some in-game currency for Super Kirby Clash.
Nintendo is offering another freebie to Switch Online subscribers. The company is giving away a bundle of 100 Gem Apples for its new free-to-play Kirby title, Super Kirby Clash. Gem Apples are Clash's form of in-game currency, and they're used purchase items, craft gear, and open new levels in the game.
To claim the freebie, head to the Switch Eshop and highlight the Nintendo Switch Online option on the left sidebar--you'll find the Gem Apple bundle listed under "special offers." You can only claim the freebie if you have a paid Nintendo Switch Online subscription, so you won't be able to download it during a free trial.
Super Kirby Clash was one of the games surprise-released after this month's big Nintendo Direct presentation. Unlike traditional Kirby titles, Clash is a cooperative game in which up to four players--each controlling a different colored Kirby--can team up to battles bosses and other large foes. You'll receive materials after each job you complete, which you can then use to craft new weapons and gear for your Kirby.
That isn't the only freebie available right now for Switch Online subscribers. Nintendo is also giving away a second Spirit Board Challenge Pack for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. That pack can likewise be claimed through the Switch Eshop, and it contains a handful of helpful items for the game's Spirit Board mode.
Switch Online subscriptions are available for US $4 / £3.49 / AU $6 for one month, US $8 / £7 / AU $12 for three months, and US $20 / £18 / AU $30 for one year. Nintendo also offers an annual Family Membership for US $35 / £31.49 / AU $55, which covers up to eight Nintendo Accounts across multiple systems. In addition to occasional freebies, the service gives you access to online play, cloud saves, and other perks, such as a library of classic SNES games with added online play.
