Organizers behind Gamescom 2021 have shared an early list of participating companies for the online event.

Just like last year, Nintendo will be absent – likely due to a lack of a physical venue. There are some notable participants though, including Bandai Namco, Ubisoft, and more.

Here’s the full lineup:

We’re just about to enter the madness of gaming events. Summer Game Fest is happening again, E3 is back, and Gamescom will be held digitally in August.

Unlike last year, most of the major events will take place over the span of a couple of weeks – starting in just a few days from now. Beyond that though, a few extra ones are planned for later in the summer.

We’ve rounded up notable gaming events that have a chance of offering Nintendo-related news below. The schedule will be updated as needed.
