At the end of the Nintendo Direct feed today, the company revealed that they will soon be launching Game Vouchers for the Nintendo Switch. The company is essentially offering a way for people to get two games at a reduced price by using their system to purchase digital copies. The program is exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers who use their account to make a purchase through the eShop. While the video below shows them using U.K. prices, the U.S. equivalent would be that if you got two games at $60 per for a total of $120, you’d only end up paying about $100 for both together using a voucher. It’s a clever way to get people to buy games through Nintendo directly rather than pre-ordering at a major retailer. No word yet as to when the system will officially launch.
