Back in Spring of 2015, before Splatoon launched on the Wii U, Nintendo held special demo events that any Wii U owner could take part in. Two years later, that idea has stayed fresh, and Nintendo is bringing the Global Testfire back once again.

As announced in the video above, the Global Testfire will take place over the weekend of March 24-26, in six hour-long sessions. Nintendo Switch owners will be able to try their hand at Splatoon 2 during this demo, a couple of months before the game officially launches. The times for each of the Testfire sessions are as follows:

March 24, 2017
12:00 p.m. – 12:59 p.m.PST
8:00 p.m. – 8:59 p.m. PST
March 25, 2017
4:00 a.m – 4:59 a.m. PST
12:00 p.m. – 12:59 p.m.PST
8:00 p.m. – 8:59 p.m. PST
March 26, 2017
4:00 a.m – 4:59 a.m. PST

 
If past Global Testfires are any indication, this event will hopefully be just the first of its kind for Splatoon 2, with another event or two to follow leading up to the release this Summer.

Are you excited to try out the new weapons and sub weapons of Splatoon 2 this March? We sure are! Stay tuned to Nintendo Wire for more Splatoon 2 news as it becomes available. As always, “Stay Fresh”!

While Jaxson's time is currently filled with writing for Nintendo Wire and making sure he remembers to bring his 3DS absolutely everywhere, the greatest occupier of his time will always be anxiously waiting for Luigi's Mansion HD to be announced.

    My only question is are we going to need the app to play, or are we going to be able to join from game? Also, will tablets work for the app if I don’t have a smart phone?

    That’s a good question. The Switch app should be ios and android, and work on any devices that support those operating systems. But the Global Test Fire for Splatoon 2 will happen way before the Switch app is ready, so I have no idea how Nintendo will do this.

    Looks like I will be staying up late that Friday night. I will put my new Switch through its baptism of ink. Only then will it be worthy.
