With the Splatoon 2 Testfire set to get underway tomorrow, a little earlier today, official Japanese details and videos regarding the available weapon sets made its way to the internet. Fast forward a good few hours, the English details have followed suit and since there’s a ton of information, it’s only natural we’d want to compile it all into one place.
Love Splatoon but unable to participate in the Global Testfire this week because you don’t own a Nintendo Switch? Not to worry, Nintendo has you covered.
The Nintendo Treehouse team will be on hand to live stream the very first event, which kicks off at 12:00 p.m. PT (15:00 p.m. ET/19:00 p.m. UTC for the UK,) on Friday the 24th of March. So even if you can’t play yourself, at least you can get a proper look at the game is really like and what you can expect from the full game. Make sure you save the link below:
But if you do own a Switch, in that case be sure to study the image below as it contains the controls you will need to commit to memory if you expect to win and remember, Stay Fresh!
As far as the Inkling world is concerned, Staying Fresh, inking everything in Turf Wars, keeping up with the latest trends and music are four majorly important factors.
In fact they’re all so equally important (especially music) that Splatoon 2 has quite a few musical acts and now the Squid Research Lab has taken it upon itself to tell us all about the musical act, Wet Floor! So we’ve taken it upon ourselves to share that information right here: Continue reading [Feature] Splatoon 2’s Totally Inkredible Wet Floor
After keeping everyone in Europe waiting long enough, the Global Testfire demo is now available in the European eShop.
So just in case you are in Europe and haven’t downloaded the demo just yet and don’t know how to get it, here’s the most direct way how to. Turn on your Switch, head straight to the eShop and you should see it in the middle of the top row. Click on it and then click to download the demo.
Just remember that just as soon as it comes through, you will not be able to access it until the 24th of February, which is when the testfire gets underway and ends on Sunday of next week.

While the Global Testfire demo still hasn’t come to the European eShop, it is available in the North American and Japanese eShop and in preparation of next weekend, more details have come to light.
The time to get our ink on is almost upon us, are you ready?
With the first Splatoon 2 Global Testfire set to dominate all next weekend, the downloadable demo is available now from the eShop, for North America and Japan. Granted you can’t actually do anything with it as soon as it’s downloaded until next weekend, but it’s small in size anyway so it won’t take up too much space on your Switch if that’s something you were worried about.

Set 2 years on from Splatoon 1, time has moved on in Inkopolis as a new era has been ushered in and with it, a brand new Ink Tank!

Once again the Japanese Twitter account for the Splatoon series is back with another image promoting Splatoon 2 and this time it’s of a Spawn Point.
While Splatoon 2 is indeed getting a whole lot of new content, such as hair styles, weapons and some fun looking arena, it still has plenty of old arsenal that fans couldn’t get enough of in Splatoon 1. Continue reading [Feature] A Quick Lesson in Splatoon 2’s Returning Weapon Classes
Just in case a new setting, a new story, new weapons and arenas wasn’t enough to properly establish Splatoon 2 as a true sequel, maybe this well.
That tweet you see above is the reveal of a brand new clothing brand for Splatoon 2, one that is described as being a casual, sporty street fashion that combines various cultures, such as art & music. I don’t know about you but this new line sure is one way to Stay Fresh with Splatoon 2. I will need to see more of it though before I fully commit to it. How about you our delightful readers?
