Splatoon 2, ARMS-focused Nintendo Direct to take place this week

Apr 12, 2017, 02:42

What do you hope to see at this Nintendo Direct? When is the next Nintendo Direct?

Just before Nintendo released its Switch console earlier this year, the company revealed that the system's online service will cost somewhere between $17 and $26 following a trial period.

Since Nintendo will focus on discussing the new details of "Splatoon 2" and "ARMS", they will most likely reveal their release dates.

Note for the diary, the next Nintendo Direct will be broadcast on Wednesday April 12, 2017. An extension of the bug bounties program it launched for the 3DS a few months back, Nintendo has partnered with HackerOne to find vulnerabilities in the Switch.

Nintendo is offering up to $20,000 to those who discover vulnerabilities in the Nintendo Switch.

There are two new games coming out this week on the digital eShop for Nintendo Switch users.

Following the success of the first title, Splatoon 2 is shaping up to be one of the best offerings on the Switch.

Both of the games will be great party plays and will keep fans satiated until the release of Puyo Puyo Tetris and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Switch owners have already had the chance to preview the game firsthand thanks to the Testfire event in March.

Hopefully, Nintendo will provide us with an explanation soon.

This week's Nintendo Direct live-stream will also feature Splatoon 2, the sequel to Nintendo's hugely popular paint-based shooter.
