Nintendo to introduce “Game Trials”

Nintendo is planning on giving those on their Online service the chance to play certain titles for free on a limited time basis. The first game in this service will be Mario Tennis Aces which will be available from 9am (UK time) on August 7th until 11:59pm (UK time) on August 13th. Unlike PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold, players will not be able to keep Mario Tennis Aces afterwards unless they purchase the game which itself will be 33% off from 7th August til the 20th August and those who check out the trial will be able to transfer their progress if they buy the full game.

There is speculation that Nintendo is doing this to sweeten their subscription model as it gets compared unfavourably to Sony and Microsoft’s equivalents even though it is cheaper (£17.99 as opposed to PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold being £49.99 each for 12 months)

If more games from Nintendo’s library get this treatment, then players will start to come around to Nintendo Switch Online.
