Nintendo has released a free Splatoon 2 Special Demo on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch, offering the chance to splat some ink in Turf War, Ranked Battle, Salmon Run, and League Battle modes for the next week.
This online event runs from 2pm GMT (3pm CET) on Tuesday 19th March until 1.59pm GMT (2.59 CET) on Monday 25th March.
You can play online with those that own the full game, and for those that don’t have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, you will receive an email with a Nintendo eShop code to activate a seven-day free trial. That code expires on Monday 25th March, but will be made available to those that have previously used a free trial.
Those that enjoy the all-out ink-stravaganza can receive a 33 percent discount for Splatoon 2 if bought on the Nintendo eShop before Sunday 31st March, or a 25 percent discount on the Splatoon 2 + Octo Expansion bundle.
You will be able to transfer some of your demo progress over to the full game, which includes your Rank, Coins, Super Sea Snails, Level, Gear, Weapons, Salmon Run rewards, Tickets, and Ticket Effects.
Splatoon 2 is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
