What are Catalog Tickets?


As the slogan of “2 for Savings Nintendo Catalog Tickets” implies, it’s a service that allows you to purchase game software at a lower price than the regular cost by buying two titles.

You might wonder about the “buying two?” part, but it means “prepaying for the cost of two game software titles,” hence this expression.

Therefore, it’s a service that says, “If you buy two titles together, we’ll offer them at a discounted price.”

The “Catalog Tickets” can be purchased for ¥9,980, but when divided between two game software titles, it means you can purchase one for ¥4,990.

For instance, if you buy “Kirby and the Forgotten Land” and “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” totaling “¥14,178,” you can save ¥4,198 by using Catalog Tickets.

The validity period for the ticket (redemption) is 12 months (365 days) from the date of purchase, allowing you to use it at your convenience within that period.

Even upcoming games can be redeemed using the ticket within the validity period after their release.

This system allows for cost-effective purchases when acquiring two game software titles simultaneously.

However, there are several points to note when purchasing:

Points to Note When Purchasing

● Payment is made at the time of Catalog Ticket purchase, not during the redemption of the game software.
● The usage of the ticket is tied to the purchased account and cannot be transferred to other accounts.
● As previously mentioned, the validity period is 12 months (365 days) from the date of purchase. If not redeemed within this period, it becomes void.
● Purchases are for the downloadable version.
● Catalog Tickets are available only to subscribers of “Nintendo Switch Online.”
