Nintendo Direct April 12th

I was telling a friend, just a couple hours before the announcement, that a Direct would make perfect sense this week, I could feel it in my bones!
The focus on ARMS and Splatoon 2 is logical, and I'm pretty sure there will also be a big focus on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The way most of their Directs work is always to give all the juicy details for the games coming out in the next 2 months, plus the occasional shadow drop/surprise reveal.
So yes, this Direct will focus mainly on everything coming out between now and E3. Any big Switch announcement will be kept for E3 itself, except maybe VC. Probably some release dates for indie games too (Stardew Valley, Overcooked, etc.)
On the 3DS front, I expect a quick talk about Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, but they've already been promoting that one heavily so I doubt they'll spend too much time on it. We'll probably see more of that 2D Pikmin game, and new info on Ever Oasis.
I'm moderately excited for this one!

I dont think we'll see much of MK8D, if we do it will probably be a quick look.
As for the 2D Pikmin game I have a strange feeling its either getting a dual release on 3DS an Switch or its getting stealth dropped that day on 3DS, with a Switch version later

@DMCMaster I'd even bet that it might end up being scrapped altogether. I don't know why I just have a feeling about it.

@Churchy I've had that feeling for a while too. I'd say if we don't hear anything about it in this Direct, it's as good as dead.

@Churchy I doubt it will get outright scrapped.
This is Nintendo we're talking about, not Microsoft

Overall this was a pretty good direct. It was nice to have more footage, details and release dates than in January. Although, why bother mentioning Rayman Legends if they're just going to give us a vague release of 2017?!
