After not bothering to turn up to the world's largest gaming convention last year, Nintendo have learned from their mistakes and plan to go big this time round. Their playable Gamescom lineup includes Mario Kart 8, Sonic Lost World, Wind Waker HD and Super Mario 3D World, while Pokemon X and Y will be available to test on 3DS. For starters.
With only 10,000 Wii U consoles sold in Europe in Q1 2013, it's clear that Nintendo needs to get the word out over here. This is a very positive first step - full details below.
