Splatoon 2’s Global Testfire splats into action tomorrow afternoon at 12p.m. PT. But you need to make sure you’re prepared before the clock strikes noon on March 24th.
Before you get to splatting your squid pals, you’ll need to download the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire app. To do this, you have to visit your Nintendo Switch’s eShop where the game lies on the front page as a free download. The Testfire is pretty small—only 408mb—so the likelihood of having to clear up space before you download the software is slim. Once the app’s downloaded onto your console, you can load it up, enjoy the energetic tune of Splatoon 2’s menu screen, and readily await the official starting time for the Testfire to kick off.
Over the entire weekend, from March 24th to March 26th, Splatoon 2 will hold six Global Testfires in total:
- March 24: 12-12:59 p.m. PT
- March 24: 8-8:59 p.m. PT
- March 25: 4-4:59 a.m. PT
- March 25: 12-12:59 p.m. PT
- March 25: 8-8:59 p.m. PT
- March 26: 4-4:59 a.m. PT
We’ll be playing as much as we can of the Testfires throughout the entire weekend. And I, for one, am eager to get a peek at the small selection of new and adjusted ink-splattering weapons and one of its new maps, the sprawling rock climbing gym of Musselforge Fitness. Plus, of course, getting a glimpse of some of the new fashion in store for our squid kids. As Squid Sisters Callie and Marie might say, remember to stay fresh.
