Splatoon 2 Global Test Fire Weekend

Let’s get this out of the way quick before we begin….it should be called Spla2oon. Either way, Splatoon 2 is having a global test fire this weekend. Some of you may say “yay can’t wait” However you should hold the excitement back till you see how wonky Nintendo does its, what is essentially a beta. Here are the times:

Friday, March 24
12-1 p.m. PT / 3-4 p.m. ET
8-9 p.m. PT / 11-11:59 p.m. ET

Saturday, March 25
4-5 a.m. PT / 7-8 a.m. ET
12-1 p.m. PT / 3-4 p.m. ET
8-9 p.m. PT / 11-11:59 p.m. ET

Sunday, March 26
4-5 a.m. PT / 7-8 a.m. ET

For those keeping track at home, yes, each test fire time is only an hour long and if you are all too familiar with Splatoon (1?) then you know you can probably get in 3 games in an hour maybe 5. Then what Nintendo does is they make you wait another 6 hours to play again. Splatoon, which was one of my top shooters of 2015 had a similar beta back in 2015, which I never played because I would consistently miss the hour window they would give.

If you own a Switch I would try and set aside one of these hours this weekend and give Splatoon 2 a whirl. It’s a charming and intuitive shooter than is completely unique to the genre but also a whole lot of fun at the same time.

Splatoon 2 is slated to come out this summer, although no date has been announced at the time.

Will you be hopping into the beta?
