Here’s a curve ball announced at today’s Super Mario Maker 2 Direct. Nintendo has announced that they will release Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers to let you get a great deal on games like Super Mario Maker 2! This is exclusively for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. The way it works is you pay $99.99 collectively for two Game Vouchers, which in turn are good for two eligible eShop titles that retail for $59.99 each. You end up saving about $20!
So you can pre-purchase Super Mario Maker 2 now, and in the interim, you can play a game like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate right now at a discount. From the video, it seems that most, if not all, full-priced first-party Nintendo titles will be eligible for this promotion. You can see it yourself starting at 16:02 in the video.
Nintendo says you can go to their website or the Switch eShop to buy Game Vouchers, but I’m not seeing them myself yet. Keep your eyes open!
