Just a friendly reminder for all Splatoon players out there and for those who don’t have the game just yet: the free US Testfire event will kick off in a couple of hours.


Nintendo offers these Testfire events to allow those with a Wii U, but without Splatoon, try the game out online.

Kicking off at 3pm PT/6pm ET the demo will allow player to try out several maps in Turf War multiplayer.

If you want to try it, you can go ahead and download the demo so it’s ready to go at the designated time.

The free trial only runs for two hours at a time. The US schedule is below.

8/21 (Fri) 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. PT
8/22 (Sat) 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. PT
