Nintendo Direct Presentation Announced for April 12th

The tweet suggests that most of the information about this Nintendo Direct will focus on ARMS and Splatoon 2, a little bit more than a week after the latest Global Testfire server stress test event.

Nintendo will be dropping a new Nintendo Direct on everyone this week, focusing on Splatoon 2 and Arms for the Switch, as well as some 3DS games.

There's the possibility of a new Nintendo 3DS game reveal during this week's Direct, but at this time it's all speculation.

The event will happen on April 12 at 3:00 PM PT/6:00 PM ET. Arms was initially announced for a spring release, so there's a good chance we're going to get a release date during the show.

As for Splatoon 2, information has begun to roll out about some of the features including Ability Rerolls. The more couch co-op games for this system the better, in my opinion. As Splatoon can be described as the multiplayer for n00bs and more experienced players for a bit of competition between friends. You'll be able to tune in and watch via YouTube or the Nintendo Direct website.

What can we expect from ARMS in this Nintendo Direct? However, let's hope that they give some more details and clarification on some of their future games.
