Christmas is almost upon us, and you know what that means – it’s time to get those special gamers in your life those ultimate gifts, like the SNES Classic Edition and the Nintendo Switch. But what if you can’t find those items in stock?
Well, Nintendo has an alternate plan where you can win those items, amongst others, for free, as part of a new promotion called the My Nintendo Holiday Sweepstakes. The details on the contest can be found here, but here’s a quick rundown on how it works.
The giveaway, which is currently open for My Nintendo members, enables fans to pick the five things they want to acquire this holiday season, ranging from Nintendo Switch systems to SNES Classic Edition systems to video games like the highly-acclaimed Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Each person that enters is then eligible to win a prize pack that will “make your holidays bright,” according to the company.
While the specifics of prize packs still have to be nailed down, it appears that quite a few good ones are up for grabs in the giveaway, including the following:
