Playable stages included The Reef and Musselforge Fitness. The Inklings players were able to play as wore a preset of different outfits that are from the same ones on promotional images and renders. All headgear had Ink Recovery Up, all clothing had Quick Respawn, and all shoes had Special Saver.

- Players were able to start log on to the Global Testfire as early as five minutes before the scheduled time. Some players were also able to get into matches a few minutes after the designated end time.
- This demo was localized into Russian and Dutch, a first in the series. This was also the only Splatoon application to have all localizations packaged into one download, without the need to download other versions from other regions.
