Arms - Nintendo Direct

If you’ve been dying for more details on Nintendo’s upcoming fighter, Arms, you’re in luck. Nintendo has announced an event from tomorrow that will have you flailing out in joy.

Bring Your Eyes To Catch Some Arms Tomorrow

Nintendo tweeted the following just a few hours ago to get the massive Arms fan base in a frenzy:

That’s right. Tomorrow, May 17th, Nintendo will release a brand new Nintendo Direct at 3:00 p.m. Pacific, 6:00 p.m. Eastern to showcase more of Arms. You’ll notice that Nintendo also mentions that there will also be a brand new trailer attached for Splatoon 2 as well. Which is quite the smart move.

The general gaming community didn’t know what to expect from Splatoon a few years ago. But it turns out that the game hit with the right community and the right time, and it was a hell of a success for Nintendo. The vibe feels exactly the same with Arms. So it’s pretty damn smart that Nintendo is pairing the two of these up like this. Hoping to lull over fans of Splatoon and Splatoon 2 to encouraging them into being intrigued by Arms. We’ll have to wait and see if it works.

You can check out the Nintendo Direct – directly – on the Nintendo page here. Arms releases on June 16th for the Nintendo Switch. Splatoon follows soon after on July 21st.

Growing up a 90's kid, Jeff found his love for gaming during Nintendo's heyday. Because of that, you could call him a "Nintendo Fanboy" (albeit a rational one) to this day. Outside of his passion for the gaming industry, he’s also an avid sports enthusiast (New York Giants and Philadelphia Phillies mainly) and enjoys quality/popular TV shows and movies.
