A Splatoon 2 Nintendo Direct announcement is coming very soon. With the game launching in nearly no time at all, it’s tough to say what Nintendo could have in store for Splatoon 2. Whatever it is, fans of the game should stay tuned. If you’re wondering what time to watch the Splatoon 2 Direct and where, we’ve got you covered.

We’re not sure what we’ll see that hasn’t already been announced during E3 and past Nintendo keynotes. We’ve already learned about the game’s single player mode, horde mode and the ridiculous headset configuration that you’ll need for voice chat and game audio. The Splatoon 2 Direct could bring news of yet another global testfire to let fans try the game out before its release date, or perhaps some last-minute gear options. We’ll have to wait for July 6 to know for sure.
