Nintendo Not Ducking Out Of Gamescom This Year

After ditching the world's biggest convention last year, Nintendo has learned its lesson and decided to make a triumphant return to Gamescom in 2013.

Last year, the company opted to host smaller "sampling events" that apparently weren't as effective as they hoped. It's also worth noting that Microsoft, who skipped out on the expo last year as well, still has yet to confirm whether or not it will be in attendance. The list of confirmed publishers include Bethesda, Deep Silver, EA, Konami, NCsoft, Ubisoft, WB, and Wargaming. 

Gamescom will be held in Cologne, Germany, and will take place from August 21st to the 25th.
