The game's 10% for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers as well which isn't a huge discount, but the game itself only costs around $40 anyway and isn't going for the full $60 price games typically do right now. That discount will last a bit longer than the trial itself and expires on October 4th.
For those who aren't familiar with the farming, town-building simulator, you can check out our review of the game as well as a rundown of its core features below.

New Adventures Off the Beaten Path
