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.
