What do you hope to see at this Nintendo Direct?
The Nintendo Switch is available now.
The Nintendo Direct presentation will air from the company's YouTube page in the U.S. at 3pm pacific time, 6pm eastern time, and in the United Kingdom at 11pm.
Although the event is supposed to focus on Arms and Splatoon 2, there's always a chance that some 3DS or other Switch news will also sneak into the lineup.
The publisher is promising to focus primarily on previously announced Switch games Arms and Splatoon 2.
Most of the Splatoon2 and ARMS fans will be keen to know about the exact release dates for the games.More news: North Korea launches missile into Sea of Japan
"ARMS" is slated for a spring release, while "Splatoon 2" is scheduled for launch on the Nintendo Switch this summer. The company is also believed to talk about Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. As much as I highly doubt it, I have heard there is more to the game when you actually play it, so it there might be something to it.
The action will kick off April 12 at 11pm United Kingdom time and you can follow the action on the Nintendo YouTube page, as well as the Nintendo Direct website. Read our Nintendo Switch review.
"We were due for a pre-E3 Nintendo Direct".
According to reports, the upcoming "Splatoon" sequel will come out with the same team-based action of the original game where players will be equipped with guns that shoot inks to defeat their opponents. But hackers have been finding exploits in the Switch's software and Nintendo is trying to nip it in the bud with up to $20k in rewards to those who track them down and tell them. "Shifty follows a teleportation-fueled heist to break into the world's most secure facility". It can be hard to get the hang of it at first, but it is enjoyable once you master its controls.
However, while those two games will take up the lion's share of the time in this Direct, they won't be the only things discussed.
