Nintendo Announces a Second Beta For Splatoon

Posted on May 20, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Nintendo of America has confirmed that they will hold a second Global Test Fire for their colorful upcoming third person shooter Splatoon. If you already have the Global Test Fire Demo installed on your Wii U you should be good to go, otherwise make sure to grab it before the one hour stress test on May 23rd between 3pm – 4pm (Pacific Time).

Splatoon was announced during E3 2014. It is a third person action title for the Wii U where players take the role of adolescent Squids who can transform into humanoid shape. Instead of focusing on the kill/death ratio that other shooters rely on, the Turf War multiplayer mode in Splatoon are all about the amount of ground your team is able to cover with colorful ink.

Splatoon’s full version will be available on May 29th for $69.99 USD.
