Splatoon 2 gets an inked-up Nintendo Direct this Thursday

Nintendo announced today that the upcoming splat-em-up Splatoon 2 will be getting a Nintendo Direct livestream this Thursday at 7 AM PST/10 AM EST. You can watch the stream on the official Nintendo website.

While not much detail was given out regarding the contents of this week’s direct, Nintendo promises that it will provide a re-FRESH-er on new features, weapons, and styles of the new game. While the last Splatoon-centered Nintendo Direct shared the spotlight with Arms (and, by extension, surprise appearances for a lot of other titles), we’re hopeful that Splatoon 2 will get a lot more love this Thursday.

Splatoon 2 will be released on July 21 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. Check out Kyle’s impressions from the Global Testfire event launched a while back, and stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
