A New Nintendo Direct Announced; Will Focus On ARMS and Splatoon 2

So it seems that Nintendo wasn't overstating when it said that the Switch is its fastest-selling system to date, and at the moment it doesn't look like its fire is only going to get bigger.

The other game, the Arms, is dubbed as the most exciting to watch in Direct as it is a new property from Nintendo.

Even with just the one must-buy game out for the console, the Nintendo Switch is nearly impossible to find in stock anywhere.

Nintendo of America has announced that a new Nintendo Direct will be broadcast later this week. The games will reportedly be revealing at Nintendo's Direct Conference this week. The presentation will air in all three regions, which means we could see a new game or two revealed, as well!

The event will happen on April 12 at 3:00 PM PT/6:00 PM ET. "Will you be staying up late to join us?" Both of the games are now listing under a 2017 release but with no specific release dates. These two new big games are "Splatoon 2" and "ARMS", and they will be shown on Nintendo's new Direct show.

'We feel the increased presence is necessary, ' the anonymous official said, citing North Korea's worrisome behavior. The Japanese government said it had lodged a strong protest against North Korea following the launch.

It's possible Nintendo could also take time to talk about Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which is released later this month on April 28.

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

Give us Virtual Console games already, Nintendo!

Hopefully, Nintendo will provide us with an explanation soon.

I've played a bit of ARMS and it's a fun multiplayer video game.
