Nintendo Switch: list of free games, demos, apps, etc.

Nintendo eShop Nintendo Switch

Looking for a new game to play on your Nintendo Switch, but not really the kind of person to pay without trying first? Or maybe you’re looking for a game or app you can download for free? If yes, you’ve come to the right place! On this page, we’re going to list absolutely all the demos available on the Nintendo eShop of the Nintendo Switch, as well as games and apps available as free downloads (video services, Free 2 Play, etc.).

Why just the Nintendo Switch? Well, because it’s fully region-free, which means that you can easily try out Free 2 Play games, services, or demos for games that are not going to have an official release outside certain countries (mainly Japan), or a staggered one. This is basically a sister page to our list of games with English (+ other languages) options on the Japanese Nintendo eShop!

Here’s how you can create a Nintendo Account to download demos and other free content from another region:

  • go to the Nintendo Account website, and create yourself a Nintendo Account
  • during the creation process, make sure to select the country of the region you want to access the Nintendo eShop of (for example: Japan for the Japanese Nintendo eShop)
  • on your Nintendo Switch, create a new user
  • link your new Nintendo Account to that new user
  • launch the Nintendo eShop, and choose that new user
