For those of you who haven’t jumped onto Splatoon yet, Nintendo is bringing back its public demo to entice newcomers. According to the official Splatoon tumblr, the Splatoon Global Testfire will recommence this coming weekend, August 21st through the 23rd. Each session will last from 3-5 PM Pacific Time (6-8 PM EST). The Testfire will also return to Europe, albeit extended from August 22nd til the 28th.

Splatoon‘s original Global Testfire was conducted over three sessions in May 2015, prior to the game’s release. The sessions were designed to stress-test the game’s online servers, with the final session from May 23rd suffering from server overload. Nintendo kindly extended the play period by another hour. With the full game now out in the wild, the upcoming Testfire could look very different in terms of numbers and server performance.
