Nintendo didn’t attend Gamescom last year, missing out on Europe’s biggest gaming trade show, but it is returning to this year.

"Nintendo's return is an absolute highlight for our community, exhibitors and trade visitors from around the world,” Gamescom project manager Tim Endres told Gamesindustry. “We are also in very promising talks with other key players in the industry with regard to Gamescom 2013.” 

Nintendo will be joined by a plethora of other developers including Bethesda Softworks, Konami, Riot Games, and Ubisoft, just to name a few. 

Gamescom takes place on August 21 in Cologne, Germany.
