Splatoon 2 Demo Lands with Free Online Trial

If you haven’t had a chance to try out the popular online shooter Splatoon 2—or you’ve been trying to convince a friend to give it a go—there’s no better time than now! Nintendo is offering a free online trial of Splatoon 2, with the full game available including Salmon Run, Ranked Battle modes, and Turf War battles… and you’ll also get a 7-day trial of the Switch Online service.

To play Splatoon 2 online you do need a Switch Online service subscription, so this 7-day trial is a way to give you a taste of the whole darn thing. If you’ve already had a previous trial of the service, you can still take advantage of this offer. Check your email account for the code after the demo is downloaded to your Switch.

One last thing—this demo is available to download now, but doesn’t go live until tomorrow. However, getting ready today means jumping right into gameplay when it goes live, so take advantage and get set up now!
