Nintendo Details Gamescom 2018 Activites

Visitors to Nintendo’s booth at gamescom in Cologne, Germany this year are in for a treat, as they’ll be the first to try some of the fun new minigames in Super Mario Party, as well as being able to go hands-on with other upcoming Nintendo Switch software, including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and more.

Coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch on 5th October, Super Mario Party brings the original board game mode back to its roots as four players race across the board searching for Stars, taking advantage of deeper strategic additions like specific Dice Blocks for each character to use. Additional game modes, such as Toad’s Rec Room that pairs up two Nintendo Switch consoles, plus the Online Mariothon minigame gauntlet, make this one party where everyone can enjoy themselves, and visitors to Nintendo’s booth in Hall 9 can try out five of the new minigames themselves as a taster of the fun that awaits.

Other playable titles available throughout the show’s run from Tuesday 21st August until Saturday 25th August include:

Those who can’t attend the show in person can get a deeper look at a selection of already-announced upcoming games on Nintendo’s YouTube channel, with a series of videos recorded at its RedCube studio on the gamescom showfloor throughout the week. Fans can tune in to see new gameplay from a selection of games, including Super Mario Party, Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country, and DAEMON X MACHINA from Marvelous, featuring the game’s producer Kenichiro Tsukuda.

Visitors to Nintendo’s booth in Hall 9 at gamescom in Cologne, Germany from 21st to 25th August will be able to play Super Mario Party for the first time, as well as go hands-on with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, FIFA 19, and more. Meanwhile, fans at home can expect a series of videos throughout the week of gamescom that show new gameplay for a selection of already-announced titles, including Super Mario Party, DAEMON X MACHINA, and more.

      1. I’ve got a feeling the next direct (which I guess will air in late Aug / early Sept) they are going to announce another Mario title coming out this year. Could be a 3D World port but I’m thinking that the release might be too close to Odyssey coming out last year – but my bet would be Odyssey DLC or a Mario Maker port.

        I’m also gonna predict a Wonderful 101 port and would be over the moon with a Metroid Prime Trilogy port (although I think that’s less likely at this time but hoping I’m wrong..)

      1. Indeed and as already God Sakurai said we don’t have to expect many new characters.

        So I think we will have only 3 new characters

  1. Every year since the Wii, people always like ‘yes this time or gamescon or wait till E3. This is going on for years and all these new customers come here how this time it’s all gonna change, this time they will announce all the games, sign.

  2. While there is always the hope Nintendo will show something or show a lot of stuff, it’s best to stay more of a realist and expect shit rather than gold. Then when they show something that isn’t shit and is at least silver, you can be at least a little happy with what you did get. Doesn’t make Nintendo’s showing any less underwhelming, though.

      1. You must understand that the majority of the most important games was already announced prior to E3 2018 and are not out yet. That being said, there is no reason why N should report on the same games over and over again like Sony does. Also, unlike other western companies, Nintendo approaches E3 like an opportunity for small Direct, while other companies make an “all-out” approach, which results in these companies showing more stuff at the E3. With that kind of approach to E3 by N, it’s possible that we will see more (games/details about announced games) in Direct later this year and in 2019.
