Unfortunately, it's not just a rental offer, either. If you want to play through the full game on Nintendo's hybrid system you'll need to fork out $59.99 USD or your regional equivalent. In terms of the installation, you will have to first install the app, which takes up around 59MB of space, and then test out the experience.
These games obviously aren't the first cloud games to be released on Nintendo Switch. Square Enix released the entire Kingdom Hearts series via the Cloud on Switch, and other games like Control and certain Resident Evil entries have also made their way across to the system this way.
