But what if I still want the first one?
Nintendo had the first Splatoon 2 Global Testfire not long ago and folks got to try out the game. The global testfire is generally like a free demo where people can get a peek at the game and I imagine gives Nintendo a lot of real time data and a chance to see the game perform online in a sort of practice run before the game is completed.
Honestly it’s a great idea and while I’m usually cold on concepts like Early Access games, these Global Testfire are so limited that it feels more like a proper demo but it’s also free! Strange to think that for a time, that was normal.
