May 7th’s Nintendo Direct revealed a lot of new details about Nintendo’s upcoming release, Splatoon. In the Direct, they announced the launch of the game’s beta test, The Splatoon Global Testfire. The beta demo is currently available for download; however, it will only be playable online during the following times:
- Friday May 8th, 8:00 – 9:00 PM PT
- Saturday May 9th, 4:00 – 5:00 AM PT
- Saturday May 9th, 12:00 to 1:00 PM PT
If you try going online during any other time, you will be prompted with an error message. I am extremely excited to play the game, so I will try to hit all scheduled online sessions. If you find yourself facing off against or partnering up with inklings wearing lab coats, that means you are playing with actual Nintendo employees, so be on the lookout!
We will keep you guys up-to-date on new sessions and announcements concerning the Splatoon Global Testfire. If you haven’t done so already, you can watch the Splatoon Nintendo Direct below.
