Splatoon 2 comes to Nintendo Switch this summer and the Squid Research Lab is hard at work researching everything that’s new. So far we know there will be new maps, new weapons, new gear – and even a fresh spectator mode, which is definitely going to improve the current research process for the team (and reduce the dry-cleaning bills).

Anyway! On to the important topic of the day: there’s going to be a free Splatoon 2 Global Testfire demo event starting on March 24th at 19:00 GMT! There will be six sessions over the weekend, each an hour long (well, 59 minutes, really) so you can enjoy a maximum of 6 hours of 4-on-4 online Turf War action in Splatoon 2 (well, 5 hours and 54 minutes, really). All you need is Nintendo Switch and a broadband internet connection to take part. Simply head to Nintendo eShop and download* the free demo – or head to the Splatoon 2 gamepage, log in using your Nintendo Account, then click “Download Demo”**.

Here’s the full timetable:


Friday 24th March

19:00 - 19:59 GMT

Saturday 25th March

03:00 - 03:59 GMT
11:00 - 11:59 GMT
19:00 - 19:59 GMT

Sunday 26th March

04:00 - 04:59 BST
12:00 - 12:59 BST

​Ohhhhhhh snap! lol

Heard about it a while ago but heat anyway incase other people didn't

Cold from me I'm afraid, I know I shouldn't complain when its something for nothing and I'm not a Nintendo hater, I have my Switch pre ordered and loved the first Splatoon on Wii U it's just those stupid time slots, I dont get it, why cant they just have a weekend long open beta like normal online multiplayers?

Played Splatoon 2 at the demo event, it's so good! Pretty excited for this

Nintendo just love to be different for the sake of being different. Always leave them wanting more as they say...
