Nintendo has confirmed that it will not be participating in this year’s Gamescom event in Cologne, Germany. Gamescom Opening Night Live kicks off on 23rd August and so far only a few publishers have been confirmed for the event such as Bandai Namco and THQ Nordic. Nintendo of Europe said in a statement that it will be attending other events in Germany, but it will be a bit of a bummer for the organisers of the event. Here’s what the company said in a statement:

“Gamescom is a central event in the event calendar for Nintendo. This year, however, after careful consideration, we decided not to participate in Cologne. Instead, players can try out the games for Nintendo Switch as part of numerous Germany-wide events. Previously firmly planned events include roadshows with our airstreamer and our bulli, for example at locations such as the SWR Summer and the Stuttgart Children’s and Youth Festival. For the 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 promotions are planned. We look forward to seeing our fans again at many regional events.”
