Wii U Non-Violent Shooter Splatoon Getting Nintendo Direct Next Week

Nintendo has announced the next Nintendo Direct video briefing.

Scheduled to take place on Thursday, May 7, at 7 AM PDT, this livestream event will focus on the company’s upcoming family-friendly Wii U shooter Splatoon.

On-hand during the event to talk about the game will be Nintendo’s “expert team of scientists at the Squid Research Lab” (not a real lab).

Nintendo didn’t provide any specifics about what it will show or announce during the event, saying only that viewers can expect all manner of “squid-tastic action.” One thing you can bet on is Nintendo developers making a lot of squid puns.

You’ll be able to watch the livestream right here on GameSpot.

Splatoon launches exclusively for Wii U on May 29. For lots more, check out GameSpot’s interview with the game’s director, which touches on the project’s origins and even its eSports potential. You can also see a variety of Splatoon screenshots in the gallery below.
