Nintendo Direct Focused On Arms And Splatoon 2 Coming Wednesday

Mark your calendars: information about Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS games is coming this week in a new Nintendo Direct presentation, focused mainly on ARMS and Splatoon 2.

To tune in, check out YouTube or the Nintendo Direct website this Wednesday, 12th April at 23:00 (UK time) 3:00 p.m. PT/6:00 p.m. ET, where the broadcast will be streamed.


        1. Just try out the next test fire, I’m sure they’ll at least have one more before the game release. Personally, it was my favorite game on the Wii U. And, unless you really love motion controls I’d recommend turning them OFF.

  1. Awesome…..I’m off from work so I can’t wait. Hopefully the info shared about ARMS could really make it a must-have title

      1. Well I haven’t been following any news regarding Nintendo because I’ve been really busy. It’s nice to get a chance to take a break and see what Nintendo has been up to :P

          1. No not yet… I’m holding out as well lol. Tbh I’m perfectly fine with my Wii U at the moment, especially since I have BoTW. I’m not in a rush.

            1. ||So you’ve learned too, I guess you do posses some higher level of intelligence compared to the cattle…||

              1. You know, I was going to say something but I’ll just take the damn compliment :P

      2. Yea neither one of these games interest me honestly. They are both multiplayer focused and I’m just not into that..

        Plus they both feel like last gen Win U titles.

        1. Honestly, it seems like we just got the first Splatoon not very long so, so it is weird to be getting a new entry do quick. In that sense, it does seem like a last gen game. Not as bad as the yearly release franchises, but still. But it has its following, so good for all those fans. Arms feels like another Wii Sports game, but with only one category of game rather than multiple sports. Definitely not interested.

          1. Just in case you weren’t aware but from what I understand the motion control in ARMS is optional, so we should be able to play it more like a traditional fighting game. I’ll give the motion controls a try but I’ll most likely be using the pro controller most of the time.

            1. Actually I think I did hear that once now that you mention it. I forgot. Either way though, I don’t have a Switch, so it doesn’t affect me either way. Maybe next year when I decide if I want to invest in a Switch.

  2. Meh not that bothered about these tbh. Splatoon was awesome to begin with but the novelty quickly wore off tbh.

    Offline Turf Wars would be nice though.

  3. Both Arms AND Splatoon 2 in this Direct?

    Excellent news. Please, more info on Arms as it does seem genuinely interesting, plus it’s supposed to come out soon, isn’t it?

    And don’t they usually do Directs for games that are near release?


  4. Predictions
    1:Splatoon 2 and arms release date
    2:5 new arms character
    3:Splatoon 2 story mode trailer and new weapons.
    4:Arms story mode trailer
    5:A new kirby game
    6:A new super mario odyssey trailer
    7:A new xenoblade chornicles 2 trailer
    8: More info on project octopath and a title octopath
    9: A new fire emblem warriors trailer focused on ike,marth,lucina,robin,and roy
    10:Indies section
    11:Some third party support mostly from ubisoft
    12:A hint of what is to come at e3 and they are playing a new metroid game with cool music!
    Nintendos E3 conference will be huge!

      1. No they say they will focus mainly on splatoon 2 and arms and other nintendo switch games and 3DS games so I think a lil footage of super mario oddesey is very likely as that game is huge.

      2. No it’s direct on Nintendo 3ds and switch games meaning only a few new games will be announced but most of viideo will be mainly focused on splatoon and arms

    1. I have a feeling they’ll at least talk about the pikmin platformer for the 3DS. Probably not as exciting for you, but hey, at least it’s something pikmin related lol

  5. King Kalas X3 {Greatness Awaits at Sony PlayStation 4! Please, Nintendo! Blow me off of the fence at E3 onto your side so I can say the same for Switch, too!} says:

    Like the Switch, I was excited as hell for ARMS. Sadly, the hype for both dissipated after only 2 weeks. Now I’m just okay. Switch is okay, not fine, nor good, nor great, nor any other term that’s better to use than okay. As for ARMS itself, I’m just meh, whatever, good for those that still are excited… So with that said, I’ll just wait for MNN to give separate articles on each thing the direct talks about. I’m just not interested enough in ARMS & Splatoon 2 to watch the entire direct. That & my internet has been crap since last month so trying to skip all of the shit in the Direct I don’t give a damn about would just be more trouble & effort than it’s honestly worth.

      And I realize today is Wednesday so MNN most likely already has these articles up. xD
