To update [Tue 24th Jan, 2023 04:00 GMT]: The same UNO trial has now been confirmed for the North American region. In this location, the test will run from January 24 until January 29. During this time, the game will also be 60% off on the local eShop. If you decide to purchase it, all your save data will carry over to the trial version.
original story [Thu 12th Jan, 2023 17:45 GMT]: Nintendo has announced that UNO will be the next free trial for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers in Europe. The giveaway is available to download from the Switch eShop right now, but won’t be playable until the trial begins on January 19.
Chances are, you’ve come across UNO before and don’t need us to tell you how the game works (yes, we’ve also been a part of those long family game nights that get a little too competitive). In one of the few differences between the Switch version and the OG card game, the power of online play allows you to play alone against others from around the world, perfect for working on your skills before the next family event.
This is, unsurprisingly, a test by name and a test by nature and subscribers will once again have just one week to play for free before the virtual cards are ripped from our virtual hands. However, all save data will carry over to the full game if you decide to purchase it, so there’s always that!
