Although E3 today is not a guarantee, video game fans in Europe have always been able to enjoy Gamescom. However, this year will be different, since a key figure of the event will not participate in the 2022 edition. We are talking about Nintendo , who has confirmed that he will not have a presence in this German celebration.

In a shared statement for the German medium Gameswirtschaft, Nintendo has confirmed that he has no plans to participate in this year’s Gamescom. However, yes they intend to carry out several events for fans in Germany . This was what was said about it:


Gamescom is a central event in the Nintendo calendar. This year, however, after a careful consideration, we decided not to participate in Colonia.

On the other hand, players can try the games for Nintendo Switch in numerous events throughout Germany. The events that have been firmly planned so far include Roadshows with our Airstreamer and our Bulli, for example, in places like the Swr Summer and the Stuttgart Children’s and Youth Festival.

For Japan and video game fans, we have decided to participate in the Matsuri Japan Frankfurt Festival, as well as in the Dokomi in Düsseldorf and the Animagic in Mannheim. More stops and actions of the tour are planned. We hope to see our fans again in many regional events.

However, This does not mean that Nintendo has not planned to carry out an event during the summer . Although at the moment there is no confirmed, rumors suggest that we will see a new Direct in the coming weeks. Along with this, the company’s presence is not ruled out at the Summer Game Fest.

Regarding Gamescom, This event will take place between August 24 and 28 in Colonia, Germany . In related issues, Gamescom this year will be face-to-face. Similarly, Nintendo gives new information about Super Nintendo World in the United States.

Editor’s note:

What plan to carry out Nintendo in the summer? Although the details are not specific, it is clear that the company already has plans in progress, the only thing missing is a Direct that shapes all these plans. Hopefully next week we have more information about it.
