As with many others worldwide, we took the chance to play the Splatoon Global Testfire demo over the weekend. While Nintendo had the chance to stress test their servers, we had a welcome opportunity to splatter to our heart’s content ahead of launch.
After reacquainting ourselves with the motion controlled camera in Splatoon‘s tutorial, we used each of the game’s weapons – Splattershot Jr., Splattershot, Splat Charger and Splat Roller – before deciding that Splat Roller was the way to go!
It was fairly smooth sailing throughout the hour, and we only ever had one instance where we encountered ‘Error Code: 118-0506’ where matchmaking had tried to place us in a match that was already full.
You can watch how we did in the hour-long video below, and let us know what tactics you found had helped you. I think our most successful match was 72.6 vs. 22.1 percent!
Splatoon will launch exclusively for Wii U in Japan on May 28th, and everywhere else worldwide on May 29th.
