As we found out yesterday, a demo for Super Chariot has gone live in Europe (North America will follow next week). Take a look at some footage of the trial below.

Update (4/11): Microids has confirmed that the demo will be available in North America on April 18.

Original (4/10): Super Chariot won’t be ready until May 10. But if you’d like to see what it has to offer ahead of time, you can download the new demo from the European Switch eShop.

Any Switch owner can download the demo so long as they have a European Nintendo Account. However, it should eventually be added to the North American eShop as well.

The Super Chariot demo takes up 466MB of space.

It’s unclear if the Switch title Gal Metal will ever head west. Still, if you’re interested in seeing what the music / rhythm game has to offer, you can nab a free demo on the Japanese eShop.

Finding the demo won’t be entirely easy, since you need to type in Japanese characters to search for it. The easiest way is probably to just use the default search tab and continue going down the page until you see the thumbnail pictured above. Click on Gal Metal’s eShop listing, then select the second option underneath pricing (5,378 yen) to begin downloading the demo.
