Nintendo will not be present at Gamescom 2022

    Nintendo released a statement through a Nintendo of Europe spokesperson, confirming that the company will not be present at Gamescom 2022. Those attending Gamescom 2022 may still try out various Switch games from partners, and Nintendo will participate at various events in Germany.

    Here’s what the Nintendo of Europe spokesperson had to say to outlet Games Wirtschaft:

    “Gamescom is a key event in Nintendo’s calendar of events,” the statement reads. “This year, however, after careful consideration, we have decided against participating in Cologne. Instead, players will be able to try out the games for Nintendo Switch at numerous events throughout Germany.

    Events that have been firmly scheduled so far include roadshows with our Airstreamer [tour bus] and our [VW] Bulli, for example at locations such as the SWR Summer Festival and the Stuttgart Children and Youth Festival.

    For Japan and video game fans, we have decided to participate in the Main Matsuri Japan Festival in Frankfurt as well as the DoKomi in Düsseldorf and the AnimagiC in Mannheim. Further tour stops and activities are being planned.

    We look forward to seeing our fans again at many regional events.”

    Gamescom 2022 runs from August 24th to August 28th at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany. Although the company will not be present at Gamescom, a Nintendo Direct is expected very soon during Summer 2022.
