There’s Going To Be Yet Another Splatoon Test Fire Event

Look, you’re clearly not doing your part to help the squid cause, because Nintendo needs your help for another Splatoon “Test Fire.” If you happened to miss the last few opportunities (or simply want to give the game another go), you’ll have at least one more chance.

The next (and possibly final) Splatoon Test Fire will be held on Saturday, May 23. Download the demo now from the eShop so you are ready when the event begins at 3 p.m. Pacific / 6 p.m. Eastern. As with the others, this will last only an hour.

Our Take
For Nintendo’s sake, I hope this testing leads to a smooth launch for Splatoon. People seem to be warming up to the title, but first impressions matter when it comes to retail releases for online multiplayer games.
