Nintendo confirms its attendance at Gamescom 2023
At a time when we have only heard absences and then cancellations, as has been the case with E3 2023, now we finally have good news for another of the important appointments of summer video game events, the largest in the world. in terms of assistance.
The organizers of gamescom just confirmed that nintendo will attend to the Cologne fair in person. The company had been absent from the last few appointments, both face-to-face and digital (it hasn’t attended since 2018), but it seems that this year it has good reasons to set up its stand.
Logically, it could be an assist to boost their releases for the second half of the year, once they Tears of the Kingdom earthquake has passed. But there are those who point out that the German fair would be the ideal setting to make an announcement as transcendental as the successor to Nintendo Switch would be, although the Kyoto manufacturer has always preferred to make this type of revelation in its native Japan, at the now-defunct E3. or at your own events. That said, we must also remember that the Nintendo Europe headquarters is in the German country, barely two hours from the event, and that it is in the process of unifying subsidiaries such as Nintendo USA under its control.
It will also be interesting to see if Nintendo’s presence is limited to the public showfloor (usually in hall 8 of the koelnmesse) or if it will also have a space behind closed doors in the private areas where they can show their secrets to the press and offer interviews. We will have to wait until the next August 23rd to find out, when Gamescom 2023 kicks off.
