The new program is called My Nintendo. The service will kick-off in March and will have many benefits for users who game on Nintendo platforms.
Buying and playing games will give users points that they can spend towards downloadable content, physical rewards and more. Users will also get discount coupons.
The Nintendo Account can be used to access My Nintendo but if you are a new user you can use your social media accounts as well. The service will also extent to features like Friends list management and save data upload.
