Nintendo will be attending Gamescom this year, event organizers have announced. This will be the first time since 2019 that Nintendo will appear at the German mega-show.
Nintendo’s presence at Gamescom suggests it will have something worthwhile to show there. But what? The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Pikmin 4 will both be released around the time Gamescom opens in late August. Could Nintendo have some hardware related to unveil to the world?

With the all-conquering Nintendo Switch in its sixth year of life, it certainly feels about time the Japanese company at least talked about what’s next.
While the Switch sold an astonishing 120 million units, surpassing the Game Boy and PlayStation 4 to become the third best-selling console of all time, sales are down 21 percent year-over-year.

Nintendo’s decision to participate at Gamescom comes hot on the heels of Eurogamer parent company ReadPop’s announcement that E3 has been cancelled. It was supposed to happen in June.
