Nintendo Reveals the Splatoon Global TestFire demo offering the chance for players to dive in at set times and receive a discount on the eShop

If you’re as excited as me for Splatoon, you’ll be pleased to know that Nintendo has unveiled what is essentially an open beta for Splatoon. The Splatoon Global TestFire demo will allow players to dive into the colourful world of Splatoon at specific times to get a feel for Nintendo’s ambitious shooter, as well as receiving a discount on the game when purchased from the Nintendo eShop.

So, you can head to the Nintendo eShop right now and download the Splatoon demo to prepare for the Global TestFire which is set to take place this Saturday, May 9 and will consist of three separate events:

  • 04:00 – 05:00 BST
  • 12:00 – 13:00 BST
  • 20:00 – 21:00 BST

And you can be damn-sure that I’ll be getting up at 4AM to play Splatoon.

Those who download the TestFire demo will also be able to receive 10 per cent off of the price of the game via the Nintendo eShop too, so if you love it that much, you can grab it for £31.49

So what are you waiting for? Grab the Splatoon TestFire Demo right NOW.
