If you haven't tried out Blizzard's hero shooter Overwatch yet, next week is the perfect chance. Just like Japan, Nintendo will be offering a trial to Switch Online subscribers here in the west. It allows you to try out the full game from 13th - 20th October.

There's no word on a sale just yet (like in Japan), but you will be able to transfer your save data from the trial to the full game. The download for the trial is available now, so you can pre-install and be ready to go when it goes live.

Back when we reviewed Overwatch, we awarded it seven out of ten stars and said it was at its best in handheld mode:

If you intend on playing it plenty when undocked, we can’t recommend it enough, but if you intend on mostly playing on the TV, consider first buying it elsewhere.

Nintendo previously held a trial for Pokkén Tournament DX. Would you like to see more trials made available to NSO subscribers? Will you be downloading Overwatch and trying it out? Tell us down below.
