As cancellations and no-shows continue to plague the gaming industry, there is a glimmer of good news for one of the summer’s most anticipated events. Gamescom has just announced that Nintendo will be present at this year’s convention in Cologne. The company’s absence since 2018 has left many speculating about its reasons for returning.

It is likely that Nintendo will showcase its upcoming titles for the second half of the year, following the massive success of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. However, some industry insiders such as Jeff Grubb and Nikkei believe that Gamescom would be the perfect venue to unveil the successor to the Switch.

We will have to wait until August 23rd to see what exactly Nintendo has in store for its return to Gamescom. Nevertheless, it is almost certain to be a fun-filled event that gamers will not want to miss.
