These are the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire times coming up on Nintendo Switch

TODO alt text

The Splatoon 2 Global Testfire is coming up next week and you'll need to know the play times before you can get started. Unlike most multiplayer beta events, you can't just drop in whenever you want. The testfire's is actually a series of hour-long sessions because a) Nintendo and b) that way you get a critical mass of players for each event (and presumably more useful testing data). The Global Testfire for the original Splatoon was the same way.

You should be able to start downloading the client from the eShop right now; here are the times that you can actually play.

Whether you missed out on the ink-flinging, multiplayer exploits of the first game or you're a veteran squid kid, you'll want to get in on at least one of the hour-long play sessions if you own a Switch. I'm definitely going to participate in at least a few of them; I have a deep, abiding love for the Splattershot Jr., so I want to see how the Splat Dualies compare in terms of close-up mayhem and inking potential. See you out there!
