Nintendo Switch Online free trial

Even if you have already tried it before, you can still get a free 7-day Nintendo Switch Online trial.

In addition to the free Nintendo Switch Online trial, fans can now download the free Mario Strikers: Battle League free demo. Nintendo requires an active Nintendo Switch Online membership for online multiplayer. So the free trial will come in handy next week.

Free Nintendo Switch Online Trial

Thankfully, accessing your free trial is pretty straightforward. Just follow these instructions that Nintendo recommends to access your free trial:

  1. Select Nintendo eShop on the Home Menu.
  2. Select your account.
  3. Select Nintendo Switch Online on the left side of the screen.
  4. Select Free Trial from the banner at the top of the screen.
  5. Choose the membership plan you want (Free Trial), then select a payment method.
  6. Select Start Membership to begin your free trial.

Note that the payment method you select will be set up to renew automatically when the trial ends. However, if you cancel the auto-renewal before the 7-day trial period ends, you will not be charged.

Nintendo says that if the free trial option does not appear in step 4, “then you either already have an existing Nintendo Switch Online membership or you have already received the free trial.”

Now you are good to go!
