My Nintendo Gives Members Check In QR Codes




Ahead of the North American Nintendo Switch Preview Tour, Nintendo has updated the My Nintendo website. Each member of My Nintendo can now find a Check In section under his or her account information. Here, people can find a custom QR code tied to the account.


The description for the My Nintendo QR Code states people will be able to use it at Nintendo events and locations. My Nintendo member benefits will be offered to people who present the QR code and use it to check in at such an event. However, no applicable events or possible benefits are listed yet.


People can sign up for a My Nintendo account via the official website and link it to their Nintendo Network ID. The North American Nintendo Switch Preview Tour will be stopping in New York, Ontario, Washington, D.C., Illinois, and California between January 13 and March 5, 2017.
