Been thinking about getting into Splatoon but still on the fence about it? This weekend is your chance to pick which side to climb down from as Nintendo will be doing the Splatoon Global Test Fire once again. Head over to the Wii U eShop to download the new Global Test Fire program (not sure if the old one will work), then from August 21st through the 23rd from 3-5 PT you can check out some multiplayer ink-spraying mayhem.
If it's the same as the GTF prior to the game's launch, you'll be put on a random team of four players in a four-on-four turf war in a random stage and you can choose from four different weapons. Since the email I got said you have to download a new GTF app, they may have changed a few things. Still, if you've been thinking of picking up Splatoon, definitely give the Global Test Fire a shot this weekend. More information can be found here.
