Earlier today Konami announced details for its upcoming Gamescom booth which, sadly, will not include any new pachinko machines. Instead, we’ll just have to make due with playable demos of PES 2019, Hyper Sports R, and Zone of the Enders The 2nd Runner: M∀RS.
In addition to showing off video games, Konami announced that Yu-Gi-Oh! will also have a presence at the games fair. Appearing outside of the Konami booth, the Yu-Gi-Oh! booth will offer fans the opportunity to participate in tournaments, check out new cards, and play the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links mobile game.
Konami’s Gamescom booth marks the first time that the general public will be able to get its hands on Hyper Sports R. Posturing itself to be the spiritual successor to Wii Sports, it’ll be interesting to see if the party-style sports game can find the same massive success as Nintendo’s twelve year old classic.
If you’re going to be attending Gamescom in Germany this August, you can check out Konami’s booth at hall 8.1/A033 and Yu-Gi-Oh!’s booth at 5.2/E039. Additionally, if you’re going to be in Germany this August, you should eat as much currywurst as possible because it’s delicious.
