Nintendo has announced that 'Missions' and 'Rewards' have been added to Nintendo Switch Online.

These elements can be accessed by navigating to the NSO icon on your Switch home screen then selecting the 'Missions & Rewards' section. Here, you'll find a list of available missions, which are related to (as Nintendo puts it) "things you’re probably already doing with your Nintendo Switch Online membership, like playing online or trying out the library of classic games."
