Splatoon Global Testfire Set to Return This Weekend

Splatoon has become an undeniable hit for Nintendo, but it seems the Japanese company isn’t quite satisfied with the game’s already substantial attach rate. The Splatoon Global Testfire, originally available for only a few select days prior to the game’s launch, will return this weekend, from August 21 through August 23. On each of those days, from 2 PM PST to 5 PM PST, Wii U owners will be able to get a taste of Splatoon’s splat-tastic competitive gameplay, choosing from a simplified selection of weapons and inking a small rotation of maps with in frenzied 4v4 matches.

If you have a Wii U and have yet to taste Splatoon’s sweet, sweet ink, this weekend’s Global Testfire is a golden opportunity to find out what you’re missing. If you need additional convincing, check out our review here.
