Special offer for Nintendo Switch Online members! Try Overwatch for a limited time.

Try Overwatch

The world could always use more heroes! Starting today, Nintendo Switch Online* members will be able to download and try the full version of Overwatch and play it until Oct. 20 at 11:59 p.m. PT. It’s a great way to sample the exhilarating 6v6 team-based combat!

This trial includes access to all of the game’s heroes, maps, and game modes, but does not include the bonus content that comes with Overwatch: Legendary Edition. If you decide to purchase Legendary Edition during or after this offer, you’ll also receive additional skins and a redeemable code for a 3-month Individual Membership for Nintendo Switch Online. You’ll also keep your save data from the trial version, so you won’t have to worry about losing your progress!

It’s Alive! Halloween Terror Is Here

Get ready to get scared—Overwatch Halloween Terror is back! Group up with your ghoulish pals by celebrating this horrific holiday with chilling new cosmetics, weekly rewards, and some spooky spins on Junkenstein’s Revenge, the action-packed co-op brawl, with new challenges.

Good luck, squid squads!

Try out Pikmin 3 Deluxe with a free demo!

In the Pikmin™ 3 Deluxe game, you’ll grow a squad of adorable, plantlike Pikmin and use a combo of exploration and strategy to find food for your home planet. While this may seem like second nature to Pikmin fans, it’s perfectly normal for newcomers to have this reaction: Buh?

Luckily, there’s now a way to try it out! To get a feel for the game, please download the free demo and give it a whirl. You’ll be able to play Story Mode through the first boss, get a sample of Mission Mode, and experience local multiplayer with another person. Also, your demo save file will transfer over to the full version of the game if you decide to buy it, giving you a head start.

Longtime fan of the series? You may want to play the demo as well. And if you beat the boss in the demo, a few things will immediately unlock in the full version when you start playing it: 1) “Ultra-Spicy” difficulty (normally, this is unlocked by completing the “Hard” difficulty in Story mode) and 2) Mission Mode stages No. 6 through No. 10 of “Collect Treasure” and “Defeat Enemies” (normally unlocked by finishing Mission Mode stages No 1. to No. 5 of both).

You can download the demo or pre-order the game on the official game page today. The game comes out on October 30th.

About Pikmin 3 Deluxe

Command a capable crop of 5 different types of Pikmin™ to strategically overcome obstacles, defeat creatures, and find food for your famished home planet! You can even bring a second player along to divvy up tasks as you explore a world that seems larger than life from a pint-sized perspective.

Indie highlights! Check out indie games that recently made their way to the Nintendo Switch system.
A ton of great independent games (also known as indies) are coming to the Nintendo Switch™ system every month. Below, you’ll find a few of the most recent releases.
