Available from today, right here, the special demo can also be downloaded from the Nintendo eShop ahead of a special event that runs between 1.00 am AEDT on 20 March and runs until 12.59 am AEDT on 26 March.
“During the demo period, players can experience 4-on-4 Turf War battles as well as Ranked Battle, Salmon Run and League Battle modes with their friends and other players online who own the full game,” Nintendo advised.
In addition to the 7-day Nintendo Switch Online trial, which will be emailed to those who download the demo, players will also receive a 33% discount if they choose to buy Splatoon 2 over the demo period.
Splatoon 2 is exclusive to Nintendo Switch.
