I wonder why they didn't just wait until E3. Unless these are all just small announcements to prepare for the big storm.

its mainly focused on ARMS which releases the same week as E3, it makes sense to get the info out sooner.

They won't throw something too big so close to E3. This will mostly be an Arms+Splatoon trailer, and mabe an indie announcement.

Possibly other stuff? Don't set yourself up for disappointment. This is not even called a Nintendo Direct, it's just a straight up Arms Direct, it's not gonna have anything else besides the one trailer for Splatoon.

I could see them possibly talk a bit about SF2 and Disgaea 5 as well.. but other than that, I dont expect much else than the stated.

 

Nope, it's specifically an ARMS direct, much like the Pokémon Direct and the Splatoon Direct the only game they'll talk about will be ARMS excluding the Splatoon 2 trailer they specifically mentioned...



So I can expect Nintendo's E3.



Guessing we will see new characters and stages and possibly even new game modes for ARMS and I'm guessing the Splatoon 2 trailer will show off the game's story mode.



If Stars is a real thing I hope they hold off for E3. Definitely a big enough announcement to be worth the greater exposure.

Their Directs have thus far been mostly to update people on things they've already announced. I don't think people should always expect an E3 type of presentation, it's more like a status update lol

Stars theorists have tomorrow to be proven right. 

 

Huh? Don't really see what this has to do with Stars other than making it more likely to be revealed at E3.

Anywho, hype!



So, any guesses what new characters will be announced for Arms? Think springy thoughts people. I say a robot with energy beams as his arms.



   

Hey! They got SONY on my amiibo! Wait a minute. Two great gaming tastes that game great together!

Sometimes developers will announce a few new titles  before a big event just so they don't have to spend as much time on it at the conference. Generally they are low or middle tier so honestly I would expect the Rabbids RPG over Pokemon Stars at this event. But I would love to be proven wrong LOL
