Nintendo is banking on ARMS to be its next big-hitting new IP, and a title to utilise the various capabilities of the Joy-Con controllers. A potentially unique spin on multiplayer and motion gaming, the big N will be giving it a pitch in an upcoming Nintendo Direct - or 'ARMS Direct' - on 17th May.

It's taking place on 17th May at 3pm Pacific / 6pm Eastern / 11pm UK / midnight CEST, with the announcement below.

The press release doesn't go any further, like the tweet above it promises a 'deep dive' into the game, and as you can see it'll end with a new trailer for Splatoon 2

As always we'll be hosting the stream with a live blog and chat here on Nintendo Life. Are you looking forward to this ARMS Direct?
