Those who missed out on the global test-fire for Splatoon earlier this month can rest easy as they will have another chance to try out the highly anticipated ink-based shooter for Nintendo Wii U.
Players will get a second chance to try out the Splatoon global test-fire starting on Saturday, May 23rd. The previous test-fire allowed players to try out the 4v4 Turf War mode. The test-fire is set to go live at 3PM PT and end at 4PM PT. Yeah, players will sadly only get one hour to try out the Splatoon test-fire, but hopefully fans will enjoy it. Nintendo announced on their page that the demo is still available for download in preparation for the event and you can even check out the controller layout.
Fans will be required to have a broadband internet connection as the game is online. The object of the game is to cover the map in your teams corresponding ink color. Although it sounds rather simple it also sounds quite fun as mechanics change as ink covers the map, players can move through it in a quick fashion by sliding through the map and climbing on walls.
Splatoon will be available exclusively on Nintendo Wii U in North America on May 29th. Stay tuned for our continued coverage.
