    hi all,
    um I recently saw that the free demo for the new Yoshi game is out and I would like to try it
    (I don't want to buy the game, just play the demo).

    1) if you download the demo, you can keep it for along as you want?

    2) you can delete it from system memory or SD card if you're bored or it?

    3) when you download a demo, you don't get stuck or such with having to buy the full game?
    (is it like on 3ds where you can try a demo without buying the game?)

    4) how big are the demos in size usually?

    1: Yes!
    2: Yes!
    3: No you don't have to buy the game at all, that's what the demo is for :) To know *if* you want to buy it later or not.
    4: It totally depends on the game. anything from 100 MB for small indie games, to 2 GB or more... I have no idea how big the Yoshi demo is

    1) You can keep it for as long as Nintendo want you to keep it. Usually forever.
    2) Yes
    3) No need to buy
    4) Depends on the game

    Do you not understand the concept of a demo (demonstration)? Anyways, it's ~500MB in this case.

    hay all, thanx for the tips, I dl'd Yoshi's crafted world and to my surprise I loved it,
    it's reminds me fondly of those Saturday morning cartoons and all it's childlike stuff ahah, makes me a kid again :)
    im gonna pick this game up when it comes out in the 29th/3!

    also I tried out the pokemon let's go demo and the megaman 11 one,
    the free demos on switch are nice to see what the game is like and if you're interested in buying the full game or not.

    I hope Nintendo makes more of these "awesome FREE demos" for more games :) to try out!
    a great free way to know on what game to spend your money or not too.
