But here’s a bit of extra info for you.

Firstly you will need a Nintendo Online Subscription, which costs only $19.99 for a year and comes with other benefits, like free content for Nintendo games, free NES and SNES titles and the ability to play certain games online.

Once you have a subscription you should then be able to download the CTR demo when it becomes available.

Speaking of the demo it will only be available in the US, Canada and Mexico, sorry players in Europe and other parts of the world.

Finally, we aren’t sure how the demo will work.


The wording is that you can “trial the full game”, which best case means you can play everything with no barriers!

Though it is possible that the demo will lock certain content or could come with some kind of time limit, so watch out for that.

Otherwise, we hope you have fun enjoying Crash team racing for free on Nintendo Switch Online!
