Splatoon 2 Global Testfire available to download from the Switch eShop

Posted on March 14, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Update: Bumped to the top. Splatoon 2 Global Testfire is now up on the North American eShop as well.

Original: The Splatoon 2 Global Testfire is taking place at the end of next week. To prepare for that, it’s already available for download on the Japanese Switch eShop.

Note that you can’t actually do much with the demo currently. You’ll need to wait until next weekend for the festivities to begin.

    This should help maintain interest in the system in Japan.

    Sucks I won’t be able to participate in this. No close friends have the system…

      You don’t have it either, right? You only need one Switch (which you probably know, but your comment can be interpreted in different ways).

      You play with random people in the testfire, not locally.

    I was super excited for this demo when it was announced… until March came, Walmart cancelled my Switch pre-order, and I couldn’t and still can’t find one anywhere else.

    Thanks Nintendo!

      why is it Nintendo’s fault that Walmart cancelled your preorder?

      • NintendoPSXTheSecond

        It’s always Nintendo’s fault didn’t know?

      • Switchling

        Not Walmart’s fault that Nintendo didn’t make enough Switches.

          Nintendo should have made a billion Switches for the launch window and just hoped that everyone bought one?

    But I can’t find a Switch 🙁

    I had my mom play the first Global Testfire back in 2015. It was all good footage, and it would have been better if my capture software didn’t vomit on itself and take all that footage with it. Hopefully that won’t be a problem this time.

  • Taun

    I wonder if I’ll be able to walk into a store & buy a Switch before the testfire happens?

      Doubt it:/
