Once again this year, Nintendo will be attending Gamescom, the biggest video game trade shows in Europe, which is often considered something of a European counterpart to E3. This year the event will be held from August 14th through the 17th in Cologne and several major publishers including Microsoft, Ubisoft, Bethesda and EA will be represented there.
Nintendo attended last year’s show as well, where they had won a few awards. We got previews of games like A Link Between Worlds, Professor Layton, Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, and Super Mario 3D World.
For some reason though Nintendo skipped the 2012 show. Despite this, we still managed to get some Nintendo news out of the show; with previews of Wii U games ZombiU and Rayman Legends being shown at the event.
So, what do you think Nintendo will be showing off this year at Gamescom? What games will we see any new information on? Hyrule Warriors? X? Sonic Boom? Do you think they’ll be any new game reveals? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
