It appears the Splatoon Global Testfire went better then Nintendo expected. Not only did the servers hold up very well but it also got a lot of people interested in the game. So much so that apparently the game is climbing pre-order charts on Amazon globally. Here in North America, Splatoon is already at the top of the Wii U list and even climbed into the top 20 list for all games. It seems the Global Testfire has payed off for Splatoon.
