Nintendo Direct 'Splatoon' Live Stream: Watch The Colorful Ink Shooter In Action Now

By Matthew Buzzi , Updated May 07, 2015 10:02 AM EDT

The Nintendo Direct stream starring Splatoon is starting now--you can watch via the embedded video below.

If you're unfamiliar, Splatoon is a third-person shooter--though not in the traditional violent sense you would think of. Players shoot colored ink at one another and the stages, with the ability to change between human and squid forms. A Wii U exclusive, Splatoon is set to release on May 29.

Just recently Nintendo hosted a livestream for Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U, a title we had seen less of than Splatoon. Walking through a game with developers is always helpful, though, and we haven't seen an extensive amount of the title that debuted at E3 2014.

There's no telling exactly what we'll from the Nintendo Direct today, but there will likely be some live gameplay sessions and feature demonstrations. The bigger Nintendo Direct videos (such as the one that has replaced Nintendo's E3 keynote) are a collection of news pieces and announcements with some gameplay footage, but the streams focused on one particular title tend to be more relaxed gameplay sessions.
