Nintendo has announced in Japan that Ys VIII will be offered as the next Nintendo Switch Online Game Trial in Japan. Those with an active Japanese subscription can play the game entirely for free from May 17th, 2021 until May 23rd, 2021. Progress from the Game Trial can be transferred over to the full version if you decide to purchase it afterward, but if you are a beast and can clear Ys VIII in a few days, more power to you!
If you are without a Japanese eShop account, let me instruct you on how you can make your own! Once you make your own Japanese account, you can easily add it to your family plan from a different region if you want access to all future Nintendo Switch Online Game Trials.
Those interested in Ys VIII can even purchase the game at a 30% discount between May 17th, 2021 and May 30th, 2021. This will still be a Japanese purchase, so please take that into consideration. You will need access to a Japanese eShop point card, which you can buy on PlayAsia among other places. Also, titles typically are a bit more expensive in Japan, so do not expect a major deal. The current asking price is ¥7678 ($70 USD), so 30% off will be roughly ¥5375 ($49 USD).
We hope you enjoy your Game Trial when it goes live in a few more days!
