Update – Apologies, the reported date is a Thursday, NOT a Friday.
We don’t usually cover news, but when we do, it’s got to be exciting, and here we are! We may have had a Nintendo Direct at the beginning of the month (not including the Xenoblade Mini-Direct last week), but it seems they think that we already deserve another direct, this time focusing on Splatoon, next Thursday (7th May 2015)
— Nintendo of Europe (@NintendoEurope) April 30, 2015
You can expect it to air in various regions as follows:
North America – 10am EST
UK – 3pm BST
Europe – 4pm CEST
Australia/New Zealand – Midnight AEST
Japan – 11pm
No news yet how long this Direct will be, it could just be another mini-Direct, but we’ll be sure to have a discussion about the event soon after.
Splatoon will be released on the 29th May 2015 in Europe and North America.
