Subscribers to Nintendo Switch Online on Switch Online, Switch Lite, and Switch OLED now have access to a new freebie that GameCube enthusiasts in particular will enjoy. Furthermore, this deal is not locked behind the Expansion Pack tier, in contrast to several other free Nintendo Switch Online offerings. You can take advantage of this new freebie whether you own the Expansion Pack or are only a standard-tier subscriber, but you must act quickly.
More precisely, customers to Nintendo Switch Online can download a selection of Metroid Prime Remastered icons to use as profile images between now and March 9. Two waves will be present. The first wave is currently accessible through March 9, while the second wave will be accessible from that date through March 16. It’s strange why Metroid Prime Remastered only has two waves when games typically have at least four.
These icons cannot be redeemed without using Platinum Points, each of which costs 5 or 10 points, depending on the icon. They are yours to keep after being redeemed. But you’re out of luck if you miss the boat.
For those who don’t know, Metroid Prime is the fifth installment in the Metroid series and an action-adventure game created by Nintendo-owned Retro Studios. Even though it wasn’t the series’ initial title, the Prime subseries’ debut was notable. It was remastered for the Nintendo Switch this year after being released in 2002 on the Nintendo GameCube, which explains the timing of these icons. It is regarded as one of the best video games ever developed.
