Nintendo Gamescom 2016

Recently, Nintendo has shown more information about their upcoming games this Gamescom 2016. While the Nintendo Die Haus Party didn?t focus solely on updates, Nintendo has certainly announced new content for their upcoming games this year. Here?s what we know so far about the Nintendo Gamescom 2016 updates, trailers, and other additions.

Pokemon Sun and Moon

The Nintendo Die Haus Party on Gamescom 2016 revealed a new Pokemon, Turtonator, on the stream. While this single Pokemon reveal might be underwhelming, his stats and moves might be interesting for the game?s long time fans. Turtonator is a Fire/Dragon type which is a type combination that most players can only find on Mega Charizard X and Reshiram. With a regular Pokemon having this type revealed, players can easily enjoy a slightly easier Pokemon to breed for perfect stats. Additionally, this Pokemon seems to be focused on Defense and Counter attacks. If Turtonator turns out to have magnificent stats and performance in fights, he might become a staple strong Pokemon for both newcomers and competitive players alike.


Recently, Yooka-Laylee has also been revealed on Gamescom 2016. While the game covers most of the current-gen consoles, having an adventure puzzle platforming game on the Nintendo console will definitely be a good choice. The developers of Yooka-Laylee were mostly former Rare developers who developed Banjo-Kazooie series. In the current game market, platforming games are often difficult to find as AAA companies stopped making these games after some time. Yooka-Laylee may possibly be a breath of fresh air for the video game genre that?s been untapped for awhile.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

As seen on the Zelda Informer footage, the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild yet again incorporates more systems to an interactive open world experience. Features confirmed in the video were stackable items on hand which could be used for puzzles and crafting in the game. Cooking food for extra effects was also shown in the footage, which may help players have alternatives to generic potions. Lastly, this footage from Nintendo Gamescom 2016 shows that the Woodcutter?s Axe can be cut down tree to make turn them into bridges, but there be might other uses for logged trees in the game. All of these mechanics have already been confirmed at E3 2016, and the clip might actually be from one of the 50 selected attendees who were able to try out the upcoming Zelda at Gamescom 2016.
