The news comes as part of the Nintendo Switch Online 7-day game trials program, which has featured popular titles such as Among Us, Two Point Hospital, Overcooked! 2, and many more in the past.

Earlier in the month, Minecraft Dungeons was already live for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers in Japan from August 9 to August 15.

If you are on the fence about whether or not you’d like this game, and you’re already an NSO subscriber, it’s an excellent opportunity to give it a go. While Minecraft Dungeons is admittedly not for everyone, it’s an overall pleasant game that makes for a good relaxing local co-op game.
