Here's How To Play Splatoon 2 For Free Before It Even Comes Out
Can the Nintendo Switch just get here already?!
As yet, there’s no confirmed release date (although it’s expected some time in the next six months or so) for the full release, but at least the playable demo will whet our appetites while we wait...
The playtest - which will be available globally between March 24 and March 26, 2017 - provides six opportunities to trial an hour-long sample of the hotly-anticipated sequel. Times aren’t always super convenient to those of us in Europe, but pft, sleep’s overrated, right?
Here’s when the trial will be live:
7pm GMT March 24
3am GMT March 25
11am GMT March 25
7pm GMT March 25
4am GMT March 26
12pm GMT March 26
During the demo, you’ll be able to check out four main weapons and access the same stages Nintendo’s currently offering during its tour of the UK, which has players giving the Nintendo Switch a go in London, Birmingham, and Manchester throughout February. You’ll also be able to check out Splatoon 2’s new feature, the spectator mode (e-sports, anyone?)
The Nintendo Switch is available from March 3, 2017 and seriously, we cannot wait. Speaking of which… did you know Zelda: Breath of the Wild has gone gold now?
