Nintendo seemingly bringing back Switch Game Vouchers in North America
Original (1/30): Switch Game Vouchers have been missing in North America for quite some time, but it seems that they could be returning in the near future.
Nintendo briefly published a video, which has since been pulled, and it came with the thumbnail above. The description stated how those with a paid membership to Switch Online can redeem them for a digital game in the voucher catalog, allowing consumers to save a bit of cash.
The thumbnail shows Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokemon Scarlet / Violet, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 3, Fire Emblem Engage, Super Mario Odyssey, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. The video also highlighted Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe, Pikmin 3, Bayonetta Origins, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Bayonetta 3, Metroid Dread, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and Mario Strikers: Battle League. It’s not clear at this time if other titles will be included. We also aren’t sure when the start date is.
In territories like Europe and Japan, the Switch Game Vouchers never went anywhere. North America was the only major region where it was a limited time offer. There’s been a long absence here as Nintendo ended purchases in the states in July 2019.
Consumers can purchase a pair of Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers for $99.98. Since games typically go for $60, you could save up to $20 on the combined price of both games. Vouchers can also be used to pre-order select games.
Update (2/1): Nintendo Switch Vouchers are officially back in North America. You can purchase them directly on the Switch eShop or on Nintendo’s web store here.
