Splatoon demo available this weekend, but with a catch

Splatoon is one game I’ve really been looking forward to on the WiiU and this weekend players will have an opportunity to get some early hands on time with the game during the Splatoon Global Test Fire demo, but there is a catch. The demo is available for download now from the Nintendo eShop on the WiiU but you will only be able to play it for 1 hour periods during specific times.

Locally the times will be:

13:00 AEST Saturday 9th May
21:00 AEST Saturday 9th May
05:00 AEST Sunday 10th May

During these time you will be able to experience the 4 vs 4 online Turf War battles against other player online from around the globe.

As an added bonus players who download the Global Testfire demo before 05:00 AEST onSunday 10th May can also claim a 10% discount off the price of Splatoon on Nintendo eShop, with the offer starting 30th May and lasting until 4th June.
