The first Monday of May is here, and Nintendo Switch Online members can spend points they have earned through My Nintendo on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and new Animal Crossing: New Horizons user icons. The selection of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe designs will be refreshed each week on Monday throughout May, and the first wave will be up until May 9th, 2022. They include characters, layouts of stages, and a variety of patterns.
Additionally, Nintendo has continued the tradition of offering Animal Crossing: New Horizons icons. Different designs from the title will be available each month based on residents who have birthdays during that month. The current lineup for these Animal Crossing icons will be live until June 6th, 2022.
Any Nintendo Switch Online member can redeem these icons if they have enough Platinum coins. Prices tend to cost either 5 or 10 Platinum Points. Even if your Nintendo Switch Online subscription runs out, you will be able to keep the icons you pick up permanently.
Also, it is worth noting that April featured two games, and that was Splatoon 2 on Mondays and Kirby and the Forgotten Land on Thursdays. We will see if May will also provide an additional game to feature on Thursdays, but we will keep you updated when that information comes in.
