Having opted not to attend Gamescom last year, Nintendo have signalled their return to the event later this year.
The event’s organisers have also confirmed further publishers that will be attending, which include Bethesda Softworks, Bigpoint, Deep Silver/Koch Media, Electronic Arts, Konami, NCsoft, Riot Games, Ubisoft, Wargaming and Warner Bros.
“Nintendo’s return is an absolute highlight for our community, exhibitors and trade visitors from around the world,” Gamescom project manager Tim Endres commented.
“The next chapter of gamescom is being written and once again promises the best in entertainment. We are also in very promising talks with other key players in the industry with regard to gamescom 2013.”
Gamescom is held at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, and will run between August 21st to 25th,
