Super Mario Party highlights Nintendo’s gamescom lineup


Visitors to Nintendo’s Gamescom booth later this month in Cologne, Germany will get a chance to see some of the developer’s most anticipated titles up close.

Super Mario Party, which is coming to Nintendo Switch on Oct. 5, will be the focus of the show for Nintendo. Gamescom will be the first place in the world where fans of the series will be able to try the game out after its reveal at E3 2018.

Other playable titles at the show include Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, FIFA 19, Dark Souls: Remastered, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, DRAGON BALL FighterZ, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, and Killer Queen Black.

Visitors attending Gamescom will be able to find Nintendo in Hall 9 from Aug. 21 to 25. Gamescom will only be open to press and trade visitors on Aug. 21, with fans allowed from Aug. 22.

Nintendo will also be running a livestream on its YouTube channel for the entirety of the show to show off a selection of titles in more detail including Super Mario Party, Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country, and DAEMON X MACHINA from Marvelous, featuring the game’s producer Kenichiro Tsukuda.

Nintendo usually has a few surprises up its sleep during Gamescom, however, so be sure to keep tuned to the livestream at all times to see what Nintendo has up its sleeve.
