Nintendo Direct April 12

The time has come once again for another beloved Nintendo Direct. We weren't sure if we'd get another before E3 2017, but it look likes the usual early April direct has been confirmed. The direct will air on April 12 at 3:00 p.m. PT/6:00 p.m. ET. The direct will features games and announcements for both Nintendo Switch and 3DS, but the focus of this direct will be on the upcoming Switch games ARMS and Splatoon 2. You can watch the full direct on Nintendo's website when it goes live on the twelfth.

I wouldn't be expecting any major new game announcements, especially with E3 right around the corner. Alongside new trailers and gameplay footage, we will likely get release dates and price confirmations (almost definitely $59.99) for both ARMS and Splatoon 2. There likely won't be much else shown, but we might get more details on the upcoming 3DS game Fire Emblem Echoes and possibly some announcements for 3rd party or indie Switch games. Stay tuned for a full recap following the direct on the 12th!
