A new Splatoon 2 demo is available now in preparation for a week of Turf Wars.
The Splatoon 2 Special Demo will net players access to the multiplayer aspects of Nintendo’s popular shooter from today through May 6. That includes, four-on-four Turf Wars, plus Salmon Run and Ranked Battles.
Players who download this demo will also get a free seven-day trial of Nintendo Online. The subscription service allows players to engage in online play. But, you’ll also be able to check out Tetris 99 and a host of NES and SNES games during the free trial.
A Splatfest, which will pit Mayo vs. Ketchup, is scheduled for May 23. If you like the game, you can grab a 33 percent discount (extremely steep for a Nintendo game) from now until May 10, and stake out your condiment allegiance when the time comes. A 25 percent discount is also available for a bundle including the base game and 2018’s Octo Expansion.
Thankfully, any progress you make during the demo period will carry over if you opt to purchase the full game.
