Following the Japanese Global Testfire earlier this month, Nintendo Wii U gamers in the United States and Europe can play Splatoon for an hour a day for a week from August 22nd to 28th.
The bad news is that quite a few of the hour slots are during the day when many gamers will be at work, but at least you can grab an hour at the weekends. Here is a list of the times the Testfire will be live.
9:00 – 20:00 GMT on Saturday 22nd
19:00 – 20:00 GMT on Sunday 23rd
09:00 – 10:00 GMT on Monday 24th
09:00 – 10:00 GMT on Tuesday 25th
15:00 – 16:00 GMT on Wednesday 26th
15:00 – 16:00 GMT on Thursday 27th
15:00 – 16:00 GMT on Friday 28th
You will need to visit the Nintendo eShop and download the Splatoon Testfire demo to participate.
