Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers - Price, What Games Can You Buy, Do You Need Nintendo Online?

Nintendo is currently running a special promotion, allowing you to get a discount on a pair of selected Nintendo Switch games. Here’s everything you need to know.

Nintendo just revealed a bunch of new details on Super Mario Maker 2 during a Nintendo Direct livestream. One extra nugget of info was the reveal of the Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers, a special promotion allowing for discounts on the eShop. There are some important caveats however, and pricing structure varies by region. To help keep you up to date, we’ve put together this Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers Guide. We’ll take a look at the pricing, how long the promotion runs for, the games that you can use Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers on, and whether or not you need a Nintendo Online subscription to use them.

Do You Need a Nintendo Online Subscription to Use Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers?

While this new offer may be enticing, it’s worth noting that you’ll need to have a Nintendo Switch Online Subscription in order to purchase the vouchers.

How Long do Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers Last?

Nintendo is only selling Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers until July 31, 2019. Once you’ve purchased them however, you’ll have a full year to use them. It’s worth picking them up then, if you plan on getting any first-party Nintendo games via the eShop over the next year.

You Can Use Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers to Pre-Order Games

Starting with Super Mario Maker 2, you can actually use your Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers to pre-order games. This allows you to pick Super Mario Maker 2, and another game up for $99, which is a real saving.

That’s all of the info we have so far on the Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers. For full details on everything related to Nintendo Switch Online be sure to visit our Nintendo Switch Online Guide.
