Gamescom 2023 welcomes Nintendo back to the event after being absent for nearly four years. 2019 was the company’s last appearance at this event before COVID-19 forced Gamescom to format into a digital-only event until 2022, at which time Nintendo, Sony, and other prominent developers and publishers all opted out.

Nintendo has not made a live on-stage presentation since E3 back in 2012, as it has shifted to making its announcements online through its Nintendo Direct broadcasts.

Following the cancellation of E3 this year, Gamescom now has the spotlight. It is a gaming trade fair that has been hosted every year in Cologne, Germany since 2009. This year it is set to run from August 22 to 27 and Geoff Keighley will kick off the first night with his traditional Opening Night Live show. Tickets are already on sale!

Nintendo’s exhibit at Cologne will follow the July 21 launch of Pikmin 4 which suggests it may have new material to announce.

Will you be planning a trip to Gamescom this year? What do you hope Nintendo’s exhibit will feature? Let us know in the comments!
