Heads up, Nintendo Switch owners! If you haven’t already you need to head to the Nintendo eShop to download the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire, which is starting this weekend and will give you the first taste of Splatoon 2. There’s a handful of new weapons and arenas and if you’re not familiar with Splatoon from the Wii U, here’s a quick primer on everything you need to know.

Event Schedule

This is not a free-for-all log-in whenever you want sort of event.

Controls & Weapons

There will be four weapon types available during this round of testing, including the new Splat Dualies that are new to Splatoon 2. Even veteran Splatoon players will have plenty to explore because each of the familiar weapons now has a new effect that changes the way it plays.

Beyond that, be sure to have fun!
