Gamescom organisers announced that Nintendo will be participating in their upcoming gaming convention, set to take place in late August in Cologne, Germany. With an estimated 300,000 attendees annually, the presence of the gaming giant is no surprise and this marks the second year in a row that Nintendo has participated in the event.
The biggest gaming convention in the world, Gamescom, is scheduled to take place in Cologne, Germany later this year, and Nintendo has been confirmed to attend. After skipping the convention during the pandemic in 2020, Nintendo made a comeback in 2022, so fans worldwide will be overjoyed to hear that they will be making an appearance.
Nintendo’s plans for Gamescom remain a mystery as there have been no hints as to what the company will showcase. While it has been confirmed that Nintendo won’t be attending E3 2023, many are still hoping for a new Nintendo Direct around June to unveil upcoming releases for the next year. If any new games or hardware are announced during this speculative Direct, it’s possible that they could be on display at Gamescom in late August. The news was announced via Gamescom’s official Twitter account as seen below:
Speculation Is All We Have For Now
After the box office success of The Super Mario Bros. Movie this month, Switch owners are eagerly anticipating the release of a new Super Mario game, whether it’s 2D or 3D. The Japanese giants are said to be developing several games for the Nintendo Switch, according to rumours. Among these rumours is a new Donkey Kong title that could be in development. Furthermore, it has been seven long years since Mario Kart 8 was released for the Wii U, making it possible for Nintendo to announce a surprise sequel at any time.
While nothing has been confirmed, there is speculation that Nintendo might make an appearance at Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest. It’s possible that the company will unveil its plans for first-party software in the near future, especially since the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom on May 12th marks the end of the company’s current slate of upcoming games. Fans are eagerly anticipating news on what Nintendo has in store for the future.
