How to play Ys VIII for free after being announced as a Switch Online sample game by Nintendo Japan

Nintendo Japan continues with its sample game programme. In this case, we have confirmation of the next title included in this promotion.

We’re talking about Ys VIII, which will be free to play for those with Nintendo Switch Online and a Japanese account (you can learn how to create one here) between 17 and 23 May 2021. Progress earned in this free version will be upgradeable to the full game if purchased at a later date.

In addition, the title will be discounted by 30% during this period on the Japanese eShop.
