How to Join Splatoon 3 Demo

Splatoon 3 is already looking like an incredibly fun game and you can get your hands on it even before it launches. Players can download the Splatoon 3 demo from the Nintendo eShop right now as it was added to the store on August 18th.


Although it was added a couple of days back, the playable sample of the demo is now live. Right now the demo only allows players to participate in the game’s tutorial and learn the basic controls.

However, players can also explore some parts of the city of Splatsville to help them decide on which team they’ll be playing as when the game launches. And although the demo is totally free, players will need a Nintendo Switch Online membership in order to get access to the demo.
