This is one of Nintendo's many Game Trial events, where NSO members are able to try out games they may have otherwise been on the fence about on their Nintendo Switch. Many popular games have been awarded the Game Trials treatment, such as Mario Tennis Aces and Pokkén Tournament DX.
In Overcooked 2, players can take control of one of a diverse cast of chefs and work together to create dishes, all while staying sane. Communication is the real name of the game, and success can be best achieved by delegating tasks and working together to keep the customers happy. Can you stop the kitchen from catching fire, though?
The Nintendo Switch Online trial starts on February 10th from 9 a.m. PST and will run until February 16th at 11:59 p.m. PST.
