Nintendo Switch Online subscribers – whether or not they’re Expansion Pack owners – can now play an iconic game, usually priced at $9.99, for free. The offer is not a free download, but a free trial. However, it is a trial version for the full game, UNand lasts until January 29, giving you several days to get the UN itch out of your system. That said, you’ll need to be a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber to access this trial.
Developed by Ubisoft Chengdu and originally released in 2016, the Switch version of the game – which came out a year later in 2017 – has a 69 on Metacritic, with a similar User Review score. Meanwhile, user reviews for the game over on Steam are in the same ballpark. In other words, digital UNO may not be the best way to play the classic card game, but it’s currently the free version.
“One of the most iconic classic games we’ve all come to know and love,” reads an official pitch from the game. “UNO returns with a range of exciting new features, such as added video chat support and an all-new theme system that adds more fun! Combine cards by matching color or value and play action cards to change things. Race against others to empty your hand for everyone else in Classic Play or customize your experience with a variety of house rules and match settings to ensure you and your friends never play the same game twice! that really change the way you play the game!”
If you don’t have Nintendo Switch Online, don’t want to pay for it, just want to play UN free, you can currently nab a seven-day free trial of the subscription service. In addition to the free trial, the subscription service is available in 12-month increments that cost $20 each unless you get the expansion pack. For an additional $30 per year, you get exclusive benefits and offers, and more importantly, access to N64 and Sega Genesis games.
