Nintendo first added “Missions” and “Rewards” to its Nintendo Switch Online subscription service in April 2022.

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

So what do you get for participating in these missions? What are Platinum Points? These can be redeemed for items in the My Nintendo Store as usual, but also “new member-exclusive icon items that you can collect and assemble to create a new user icon.”

Nintendo Switch Online Missions and Rewards: How to Earn Platinum Points

It’s easy. As explained above, all you have to do is go to the Missions and Rewards section of the NSO app on your Switch console and check out the currently available missions. Complete them and you’ll earn platinum points.

Be aware that the time between the end of a mission and the display of the points on your account can sometimes be quite long, especially during busy periods. If your points don’t show immediately, check back later.

Don’t forget that there are also chances to earn Platinum Points through your My Nintendo account.

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. It’s the icon people also see when you’re online, so there’s motivation to make yours as unique as possible.

Once you have accumulated enough platinum points, simply select the icon item you want and purchase it. Note that to edit your “reward” icon items, you must be in the NSO online application. You cannot customize reward items in the standard Switch UI.
