Now Playing: ARMS - Nintendo Direct Trailer

Nintendo didn't suggest there will be anything beyond those two games featured. The two were also given the spotlight in a Nintendo Direct back in April, when we learned that Arms will launch on June 16 alongside a special yellow-color Joy-Con.

Any other announcements Nintendo might have to share are likely being saved for E3. The company recently announced its plans for this year's event, with streams planned to begin on June 13.
