Splatoon 2 Global Testfire Announced!

Postby Merky Water » Sun Feb 12, 2017 12:31 pm

So, the Switch hasn't even hit store shelves yet but, that's not stopping Nintendo from telling us what's in store! Yet another bonus for those able to secure a system early

Nintendo has not yet narrowed down the full game's release date from "Summer 2017" but, a testfire in late March would point to sooner rather than later. If you recall, the testfire for the original Splatoon occurred just over two weeks before it's release. So, when does "Summer" really begin to the pen holders at Nintendo?

This is great news. I remember playing the original test fire and it only made me want Splatoon that much more. So glad it's happening again :D

As for a release, didn't the original come out in May... yup, according to the googles, it did. I wonder if May counts as summer in Japan??? If so, and if it was released in roughly the same time frame, that'd be frickin fantastic :D

So far, I'm three for three. Not looking likely I'll make the one this afternoon but will definitely be on this evening. Will I wake up early on a day off again tomorrow? Jury is out ...but there is a lot of fun to be had.

I'm even more anxious to hear when Splatoon 2 will be released. We were talking about some tweaks we'd like to see in the game on Discord voice chat last night. Namely, to allow for both motion aiming and stick aiming at the same time for best precision. But, on the whole, the game seems near done. Not sure they'll want to trump MK8Deluxe to release this in April but May or early June seems like a very real possibility. Hoping we hear some concrete word at the close of this event

Late may or early june would be a blessing for me. Other people are anticipating july/august and even another testfire before it comes out.

Speaking of, the testfire almost seemed region locked for me, didn't see a japanese symbol during my sessions at all.
But I heard there were a better mix the first session, does that mean they gave up on the whole global concept because it got too bad?

I had a blast with the testfire though, no problems at all, although I was gunned down by a guy I had killed a second earlier once, nice delay there.
I'm impatiently waiting for a release date, but it seems far off for me.
