Starting at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET, Nintendo will host its latest Nintendo Direct presentation. The stream will focus on ARMS, the upcoming motion-based brawler exclusive to the Nintendo Switch. We have the presentation right here, so dig in.
Stick around until after the show, too, as Nintendo announced that they’ll take the time to step away from ARMS and drop a new trailer for Splatoon 2.
As far as banner Nintendo Switch titles due for the first year go, ARMS seems like it has the biggest potential to slide in as a dark horse hit. The game has been sort of ignored by those beyond the Nintendo faithful. It looks interesting, sure, but many likely wouldn’t mark it as a major system seller.
This Nintendo Direct presentation could work to change that image, turning ARMS from a stand-in to a pure contender.
ARMS is due to launch on the Nintendo Switch on June 16, 2017.
