Switch owners will soon have another chance to try out one of the system’s best multiplayer games. Nintendo has announced it is holding a free, limited-time demo for Splatoon 2 next week, letting you sample the colorful online shooter at no charge. That’s not all: the game will also soon host its first Splatfest event since last summer.
The demo client is already available to download from the Switch Eshop, but it will only be live from 11 PM PT on April 29 to 6:59 AM PT on May 6. During that time, you’ll be able to try out all of the game’s online modes, including the signature Turf War, the more competitive Ranked Battle, and the cooperative Salmon Run.
Inkoming! A Special Demo event for #Splatoon2 is on the way! You’ll be able to play Turf War, Ranked Battle, Salmon Run, and more beginning 4/29 at 11pm PT, to 5/6 at 6:59am PT. pic.twitter.com/U8tYN4SAVn
