Nintendo Switch Online adds NES icons
Posted on September 26, 2022 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Original (9/5): To kick off the month of September, NES icons have now been added to the Nintendo Switch Online service. They can be redeemed with points on My Nintendo.
Icons are available based on characters – and that’s it. Typically we see backgrounds and frames as well, but there are none of those this time around. At least for wave one, fans can get their hands on icons for Super Mario Bros., Balloon Fight, Tennis, Baseball, Soccer, Volleyball, and Ice Hockey plus consoles and accessories from the era, from both inside and outside Japan. Each one will set you back 10 Platinum Points from My Nintendo.
Note that new icons will be rotated on a weekly basis. Nintendo will then end the lineup of NES icons on October 3 at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET.
