Gamescom is the world’s biggest video game conference there is. This year it was held in Koelnmesse, Cologne, Germany from Monday, August 19, 2019, to Friday, August 23, 2019. If you like to be informed about video games, this is one of the most important conventions there is. However, most of us don’t have the money to drop everything and fly out to Germany to hear about some video games. That is why this list was prepared to keep you up to date on all things video games.

Nintendo:

This year has already been great for video games, especially for Nintendo. The company has already announced multiple titles such as “Link’s Awakening” and “Pokemon Sword and Shield” that are to be released later this year. However, this year is great for indie games as well with the release of games like Celeste, and the number of new indie games coming to the Nintendo Switch is only going to rise. Nintendo announced 29 new titles to be ported to their console soon. This list includes “Hotline Miami Collection” and “SuperHot” which are to be available for purchase on August 19th, 2019.

Google:

In the past few years, Google has been slowly increasing its interest in the gaming market, and 2019 is no different. This year’s Gamescom Google has announced a handful of new titles. These include: “Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle,” “Orcs Must Die! 3,” “Cyberpunk 2077,” “Kine” and “Superhot.” However, the full Stadia, Google’s gaming platform, panel has not occurred yet, so this list could double in size by the time the convention is over. 

Other Games:

A few other games that have been announced for this year are “Kerbal Space Program” for PC and Xbox, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (Updated)” for Playstation 4, and “Erica” for Playstation 4 as well.

However, what a lot of people were looking forward to was Hideo Kojima, a legendary Japanese game developer. Specifically, the audience was excited to hear updates on his new horror game “Death’s Stranding” since there has been little known about it for a while now. Kojima delivered with three separate videos on some mechanics, storylines, and the release date: November 8.
