A free Splatoon 3 Splatfest World Premiere demo is set to take place as of Wednesday's Splatoon 3 Nintendo Direct.

This means that you can play the game before it launches and compete in a multiplayer event.

Splatfest World Premiere Demo will feature a portion of Splatoon 3’s 4 vs.4 Turf War battles, as well as new 3-way Tricolor Turf Wars.

You'll find some of the new weapons in the game and a choice of side: Team Rock, Team Paper, or Team Scissors.
