gamescom 2016 is right around the corner and Nintendo just sent out a press release announcing their full lineup and plans for the show.

The biggest highlight is probably a live gameplay demonstration of Pokemon Sun & Moon by Game Freak’s Shigeki Morimoto. This will only be the second ever live gameplay of Sun & Moon, after its initial demonstration at E3 in June. The gameplay demonstration will be streamed live on Nintendo’s German Twitch channel this Thursday, August 18th, at 17:00 CEST.

Nintendo has a few things in store for Gamescom 2016 later this month, aside from playable games. The company has now shared a bit more about its plans.

Pokemon developer Shigeki Morimoto, Splatoon developer Hisashi Nogami, and a developer behind Dragon Quest VII will all be appearing as guests. Tim Feldner is set to moderate the Nintendo houseparty on stage which will feature guests, signing session, live demos, contests, and more.

A select group of fans will be able to try out Zelda: Breath of the Wild at Gamescom. To have a shot at playing the demo, you’ll need to win a spot in the current contest (until August 8 for those in Germany, Austria or Switzerland) or win in the Pokken Tournament, Splatoon, Super Smash Bros. or Mario Kart 8 tournament at the Gamescom. Players who are victorious in the tournaments will also receive a trophy.
