Starting from next week, Nintendo Switch Online subscribers in Japan will be able to enjoy Celeste - in its entirety - at no extra charge.
The game is the latest to be offered up in a string of free, limited-time releases available to subscribers, which has already included the likes of Fire Emblem Warriors and Dead Cells. Celeste will become playable from 12:00 JST on 18th May, and players will be able to access it up until 18:00 JST on 24th May, providing them with a full week to play as much or as little as they like.
For anyone who likes what they see and wants to add the game to their library on a permanent basis, a sale will also be held. During the promotion, Japanese players will be able to buy the game at 50% off (1,080 yen instead of 2,160 yen).
If you're not from Japan but want to try Celeste for yourself, there are workarounds. We made a guide on the topic for the Fire Emblem Warriors offer, and the same tricks will apply for Celeste when the promotion goes live. Celeste's an absolute cracker by the way, so we'd urge you to pick it up regardless:
The Nintendo Life Review: "Celeste is an exemplary amalgamation of style, mechanics and character. A devilishly brilliant action platformer with enough skill required to excite genre purists and the speed running community, while at the same time featuring a breakdown of gameplay elements to customize and cater for all audiences."
