We’re making our way to the end of the year, and Nintendo’s latest eShop update has a lot of great content in store for fans.

For starters, Fire Emblem Heroes is hosting a special event to celebrate next month’s release of Fire Emblem Engage. You can vote for your favorite Fire Emblem character to join Engage as Emblems. Get in quickly because voting ends December 25. Who will you choose?

Nintendo is hosting a bunch of other activities to end the year, including double gold points for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass members. Time to take advantage of those sales! There are also new My Nintendo physical rewards to check out, including luggage tags, keychains, and a 2023 desktop calendar. Plus you can enter the Fire Emblem Engage sweepstakes for your chance to win great prizes ahead of next month’s launch of the game.

As if that wasn’t enough, there’s the usual long list of new eShop games to try, with titles ranging from the intriguing-sounding Kaiju Wars to the extra-lengthy Drone Race Simulator Pilot Flight School Airplane Games Jet 2023 – yes, that’s its full title.
