If you are as excited as us about the upcoming Splatoon 2 Global Testfire event then you'll be interested to learn that you can download the demo right now from the Japanese Nintendo Switch eShop and stare at a placeholder screen until the event starts on 24th March.

The demo takes up 408MB of space and will most likely be available to download from the North American and Europe eShop later today if you haven't got a Japanese account.

Are you excited to take part in the Global Testfire for Splatoon 2? Will it kill you knowing it's on your console but you can't play it until the 24th? Let us know with a comment.
