Nintendo has been loving the last-minute announcements and specific game Directs lately, so it's not a huge surprise to see that they warned us of a Splatoon 3 Direct just two days before it was due to happen on Wednesday, the 10th of August. Even with only two days to go, Nintendo of Europe managed to mess up, and almost accidentally revealed the Direct a day earlier than planned.
The squid-filled shooter is scheduled to launch on September 9th, exactly a month from today... and maybe Nintendo forgot that the game was due on the 9th (of September), but the Direct was due on the 10th (of August).
As GoNintendo spotted earlier today, the UK, Australian, and Belgian YouTube channels went live with a ten-minute countdown to the Direct, before Nintendo seemed to notice with only three minutes and 34 seconds to go. Other reports seem to imply that more Nintendo channels were involved, including Spain, and Germany.
Nothing serious was leaked, though, so no harm done.
