For the first time ever, Nintendo is making select games redeemable with My Nintendo Gold Points on its eShop.
Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien and Art of Balance are redeemable on the Wii U for 90 Gold Points and 70 Gold Points respectively. As far as 3DS games go, Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo is redeemable for 60 Gold Points, while Zen Pinball 3D is redeemable for 50 Gold Points.
Previously, My Nintendo members could redeem Gold Points (which you can earn by purchasing Nintendo games) for discounts on games or for background themes and other digital accouterments.
Unfortunately, Nintendo still has yet to debut its Switch awards category, so owners of that console still have nowhere to put the Gold Points they’ve earned. That being said, hopefully this is a sign that Nintendo is planning to expand its reward program by offering more redeemable titles in the future.
