Gamescom 2017

Nintendo has given a more detailed look at its livestream schedule during Gamescom. You’ll be able to watch these streams here when they go live. A variety of first-party and third-party games are going to be featured. Here’s the schedule (all times are in BST):


EA prepared a new FIFA 18 trailer for the game’s presence at Gamescom 2017. View the video below.

The nominees are in for this year’s Gamescom Awards. In terms of Nintendo games, Super Mario Odyssey and Mario + Rabbids are nominated in several categories. Metroid: Samus Returns is also given a nod as well.

We’ve posted the Nintendo-related nominees below. Winners will be announced this Thursday. 

The Zoink-developed Fe is on the way to Switch, EA just announced at its Gamescom 2017 media briefing.

Here’s a brief overview:

Fe is a new type of wordless platformer full of sounds. Through Fe, a small cub that suddenly awakes in the forest, players will discover a world they will never want to leave as they use sound to communicate, connect with nature, identify friendly and unfriendly creatures and interpret their own narrative along the way.

Fe isn’t the only new Switch game from Zoink. The studio is also working on Flipping Death for Nintendo’s console.

Fe will be available on Switch in early 2018. View a trailer for the game below, along with today’s full announcement.

THQ Nordic sent out the opening animation for Battle Chasers: Nightwar last week. At the end of the video, a message appears stating that the Switch version of the game will be launching “slightly later”.

So here’s something interesting. Airship Syndicate posted an update about the Switch version on Kickstarter, and suggested that there may not actually be a delay. While the team has “hit a few issues that are slowing things down,” a delay is not officially set in stone. And if it does happen, the Switch version likely won’t be pushed back too significantly. The Kickstarter post adds “we’re doing everything in our power to make the October 3rd launch date”.

If you’re planning on attending Gamescom next week, you’ll be happy to hear that Away: Journey to the Unexpected will be playable. Even better, a demo will be available on Switch.

The official Twitter account confirmed earlier this week.

Other upcoming games will also be playable on Switch for the first time at Gamescom. These include Monster Boy, Nine Parchments, and Battle Chasers: Nightwar.


SEGA announced its lineup for Gamescom 2017 today. Along with Sonic Forces, Total Warhammer II will be playable at the Koch Media stand, located in Hall 9.1, Booth no.011.

The Sonic Forces demo will contain three stages. Gamescom attendees can play as Modern Sonic, Classic Sonic, and the customizable Hero character.

FDG Entertainment has provided a brief, first look at Monster Boy running on Switch with a new gameplay clip. Watch it below.

Monster Boy will be playable on Switch for the first time at Gamescom next week.

A new blog post went up on the official Monster Boy blog this week covering the game’s map features. In the game, you’ll have a map that shows an overview at all times.

The image above offers a look at the map, which is only partially filled in to avoid spoilers.

Players will start out at the beach, leading up to a lighthouse with the first boss encounter. The map “not only shows the pathway, but many more details.”

Here’s a rundown of map features you can expect:

Back in June, THQ Nordic announced that Battle Chasers: Nightwar would be launching on October 3. While that mostly still holds true, the date no longer applies to the Switch version.

THQ Nordic quietly announced the delay in the animated intro video published today. At the end of the video, text appears stating that Battle Chasers: Nightwar will be on Switch “slightly later”. A specific date was not mentioned.
