The new My Nintendo reward scheme is a new customer loyalty programme from Nintendo that will allow you to earn points that can be spent on games and add-ons. Points can be acquired using various methods from simply buying games to playing on the new smartphone app, Miitomo.
For everything you need to know about the service take a look here.
Miitomo released in Japan today and is a companion app that allows you to connect your Mii with your friends.
Nintendo Life have created a guide on how to adjust your phone’s settings to access the app early (thanks to Eurogamer for pointing this out) if you are eager to get started, but the app will release later this month for everyone else so check out the trailer for Miitomo below:
Setting up your Nintendo account, using Miitomo and buying games will all score you points of either gold or platinum. Below is a chart showcasing what each action will earn you, with interactions on Miitomo and your Nintendo account seemingly worth much more than purchasing games:
