Nintendo has just announced that ‘Missions’ and ‘Rewards’ have been added to Nintendo Switch Online.

These elements can be accessed by navigating to the NSO icon on your Switch home screen then selecting the ‘Missions & Rewards’ section. Here, you’ll find a list of available missions, which are related to (as Nintendo puts it) “things you’re probably already doing with your Nintendo Switch Online membership, like playing online or trying out the library of classic games.”

So, what do you get for taking part in these missions? Platinum Points, that’s what. These can be redeemed for items in the My Nintendo Store as usual, but also “new member-exclusive icon elements you can collect and put together to create a new user icon.”

What are icon elements, you ask? These are frames, characters and background elements that you can use to customize your user icon on your Switch console. This is the icon that people see when you’re online, too, so there’s a motivation to make yours as unique as possible.

Each month will have a different theme and icon elements will be refreshed each and every week – at the moment, we’ve got Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March birthdays) and Super Mario Odyssey-themed elements to earn.
