As is regularly the case, Nintendo offers a new selection of full game downloads on its My Nintendo Bonus Program. Members can redeem their Gold Points for a handful of acclaimed indie games on 3DS and Wii U, allowing them to download the games for free.
Four new games are available for the two consoles. On the 3DS site, My Nintendo members can get the platformer / racing game Runbow Pocket for 110 gold points; the arcade beat – 'em-up Noitu Love: Devolution for 80 Gold Points; and the stylish dungeon crawler Separated for 110 gold points. Meanwhile, Wii U owners can download the Sonic-like platformer Freedom Planet for 110 Gold Points.
All four games will be available on My Nintendo until September 26, so you can save a lot of time if you do not have enough gold points in your account. Full game downloads are still a pretty rare sight on the program; Only a small selection of games were offered on My Nintendo, all intended for Wii U and 3DS.

Members now have the option to use their Gold Points for selected Switch games when they buy them on the Eshop or Nintendo website. You can read more about how this process works on My Nintendo.
