Nintendo Will Air a Splatoon 2-Focused Direct This Thursday

If you're looking forward to Splatoon 2, you might want to plan to watch Thursday's Nintendo Direct.

Splatoon 2 is set to launch later this month, but before it's available to the public, Nintendo is going to showcase that game in a new Nintendo Direct this week. Nintendo has announced that it will broadcast a Splatoon 2-focused Direct this Thursday.

The broadcast will kick off kind of early for those in the US, beginning at 10 AM ET / 7 AM PT on Nintendo's YouTube channel. You can also tune in below:

Nintendo said on Twitter [] that it will be showing off some of the game's "new features" in the broadcast.

Splatoon 2 is the follow-up to Splatoo, which was Nintendo's first new major IP since Pikmin. The game will let up to 10 Switch owners link their consoles for tournament play, will have support for Amiibos, and more.

This will be the second Direct for the game, as the first one focused on Splatoon 2's new PvE mode, Salmon Run. Splatoon 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch on July 21.
