Nintendo has announced that its Direct livestreams will return once again this week.

Nintendo will be dropping a new Nintendo Direct on everyone this week, focusing on Splatoon 2 and Arms for the Switch, as well as some 3DS games. Make sure to tune in at or Twitch to catch the latest Nintendo news, or tune into GameZone who will undoubtedly be covering the event.

According to Nintendo, the Direct will begin on Wednesday, April 12th at 6:00 PM ET, and will focus on Splatoon 2 and ARMS - two Switch games which will launch by this summer.

Now that your time in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is winding down, Nintendo wants to pitch you on some future Switch games.

Interest in ARMS has grown significantly since the game's unveiling in January. An extension of the bug bounties program it launched for the 3DS a few months back, Nintendo has partnered with HackerOne to find vulnerabilities in the Switch. Again, along with ARMS, its release date remains vague. While the PlayStation 4 outsold Xbox One, the newly released Nintendo Switch swept them both under the rug, taking the number one spot for console sales. We could get a more specific date out of the stream. If you'd like to submit a report and try your luck with Nintendo's reward system, you can go to the HackerOne campaign page by clicking the source link below. And, while we're at it, Virtual Console for Nintendo Switch would be a welcome surprise before E3. Let us know in the comments.
