We're sure most of you know Hollow Knight by now, but those who haven't picked up this great Metroidvania yet can now try it out as part of Nintendo Switch Online's new free trial in Europe.

The trial period begins today (6th of June) in the Switch eShop and you can explore the melancholic map of Hallownest to your heart's content for free until 12th of June. As the name suggests, this offer is only available to holders of an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription.

We don't need to tell you how brilliant Hollow Knight is – and even if you don't know, it's best to find out for yourself. Apparently there's a sequel in the works too? This week-long trial could be the perfect opportunity to dive in before it finally comes out…

Six years after its release, Hollow Knight is still a hit for some of us. If you've tried it before, give it another try. You should be prepared when the game that shall not be named finally falls.
