Nintendo Gamescom 2017 Showcase Includes Super Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Metroid: Samus Returns and Fire Emblem Warriors will also be present.
Along with other publishers, Nintendo will be attending Gamescom 2017 in Cologne, Germany to showcase its upcoming big name games. It will hold a livestream on August 23rd at 3 PM CEST to where Super Mario Odyssey producer Yoshiaki Koizumi will demo the game and also provide commentary. Attendees will have a chance to play the Metro Kingdom and Sand Kingdom worlds on the show floor.
August 24th, 12 PM CEST will see Metroid: Samus Returns showcased with producer Yoshio Sakamoto and creative director José Luis Márquez. Furthermore, interviews and shows for Fire Emblem Warriors and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 along with new footage of these games will be streamed live to all.
While Super Mario Odyssey will arrive in October for the Nintendo Switch, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be out this Holiday season. Perhaps Nintendo will actually use Gamescom to confirm a release date for the later, especially since it’s one of the biggest Switch games of the year.
