After the launch of ARMS last month, the next big Nintendo title coming to Switch is Splatoon 2. We’ve heard quite a lot about this game since it was revealed back in January, but it looks like we’ll get one more burst of information this Thursday. On July 6 at 7 AM PT/10 AM ET Nintendo will air a Splatoon 2 direct. This direct will likely be rather short, probably 8-15 minutes in length, and give us some last minute details on the upcoming game. Splatoon 2 will launch globally on July 21, 2017.

There’s a little bit of speculation about what might be revealed during the direct. It’s unlikely that we’ll see any large new game modes, but they are always a possibility. We’ll probably get some info and footage on a few new maps and weapons. We still don’t know everything there is to know about the social app that will facilitate voice chat, so more details on that seem reasonable. Finally, we might even get news of a second testfire, one that is a little bit closer to launch date. That should give Nintendo time to ensure that the servers will be up to par and give Switch owners another opportunity to see if the game is for them. If you can’t watch live on Thursday, make sure to check back and we’ll let you know everything that happens during the direct.
