Nintendo Switch: list of free games, Game Trials (Nintendo Switch Online), demos, apps, etc.

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

    great list, helpful, there is also the namco museum multiplayer demo

    • 25 August 2017 at 12 h 27 min

      Are you talking of the free download for Pac-Man VS? Pretty sure that’s not really a demo.

      • 26 August 2017 at 5 h 59 min

        Yes that is what I meant, if you don’t find it to be a demo I understand. To me, if the Arms and Splatoon games are listed here as demos, the Pac-Man VS is a demo too. I find Arms and Splatoon’s testpunch/testfire to be limited time online multiplayer stress tests, not real demos. Where as the Pac-Man VS offers an unlimited feature (multiplayer) of the Pac-Man VS game which can make one decide whether or not to buy the full game, a demo. So I don’t see why the Arms/Splatoon are ok to be called demos and Pac-Man VS is not. Just my opinion.

          I thought that was to play with people who own the game outright??

    • 10 September 2017 at 12 h 12 min

      Somehow managed to miss that one. Thanks a lot for the heads up!

    It’s missing ‘Rayman Legends Definitive Edition’.

    • 16 September 2017 at 1 h 10 min

      PS: It’s on the US eshop right now, don’t know about other regions.

      • 16 September 2017 at 8 h 29 min

        No you’re right, it IS available in EU too, I simply forgot to add it to the list after removing it from the “Latest demos” section. Thanks for the heads up!

  • 1 November 2017 at 10 h 21 min

    I wish there would be demos for odyssey and mk8d and breath of the wild even if its timed just like the stores demos. on the switch.

  • 1 November 2017 at 10 h 23 min

    you should take off global test punch and test fire because its not usable any more.

  • 24 November 2017 at 5 h 24 min

    Robonauts currently is not a demo for some reason.

  • 19 April 2018 at 0 h 39 min

    Apparently Super Beat Sports isn’t available as a demo anymore.

    • 19 April 2018 at 12 h 08 min

      Hmm… you’re right. I’ll remove it with the next update, later today. Thanks for reporting!

      • 26 July 2018 at 16 h 34 min

        Zaccaria Pinball, Its on the EU eShop didn’t check the other ones.

        • 26 July 2018 at 18 h 33 min

          I see, it’s one of this week’s new releases. It’s been added to the list, thanks for the heads up!

          • 26 July 2018 at 19 h 31 min

            Thanks for making and maintaining the list!
