Splatoon 2 Brings Backs the Global Testfire Event
With the Nintendo Switch releasing worldwide in less than 3 weeks (18 days for those counting), more and more information gets out as we get closer to the big day that is March 3. Even games not releasing at launch like Splatoon 2 is getting more info! As announced by Nintendo yesterday, Splatoon 2 will be bringing back the Global Testfire, a downloadable demo that can be played at certain times to test out Splatoon 2. The original Global Testfire for Splatoon was held the weekend of May 8-9, 2015, as well as May 23, 2015, just a few weeks before the release on May 29, 2015.
This time, with Splatoon 2 currently holding a summer 2017 placeholder release date, the game’s Global Testfire demo will be held considerably early, March 24-26, assuming that Splatoon 2 will still be releasing this summer. There will be six 1-hour playtimes for the event:
Friday, March 24, 2017:
#1: 12:00pm-12:59pm (PT) 3:00pm-3:59pm (EST)
#2: 8:00pm-8:59pm (PT) 11:00pm-11:59pm (EST)
Saturday, March 25, 2017:
#3: 4:00am-4:59am (PT) 7:00am-7:59am (EST)
#4: 12:00-12:59pm (PT) 3:00pm-3:59pm (EST)
#5: 8:00-8:59pm (PT) 11:00pm-11:59pm (EST)
Sunday, March 26, 2017:
#6: 4:00am-4:59am (PT) 7:00am-7:59am (EST)
With this Testfire and the new Nintendo Switch online services, hopefully this will be even better than the Wii U Testfire and online mode. Be sure to check out the press release below as well as a trailer for the upcoming Splatoon 2 Global Testfire.
