It’s here, the day you’ve all been waiting for, as tonight marked the beginning of Gamescom with Geoff Keighley taking to the stage for Opening Night Live. This two-hour programme showed off various upcoming games across numerous platforms. Yes, that includes mobile and Switch.
Naturally, despite our love for all things gaming, we were especially keen to see the Opening Night Live Switch and mobile offerings to kick off Gamescom 2022. Admittedly, some titles, such as Hogwarts Legacy, are multi-platform, but that doesn’t take away from the magic and incredible wave of nostalgia many are likely to feel when we get another look at the legendary school for witchcraft and wizardry.
Then, of course, we know that Sonic Frontiers appeared, a game that clearly takes inspiration from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the World, as it places the blue hedgehog in a vast open world. Another game the PT crew is especially keen to play is Honkai Star Rail, an upcoming game from HoYoverse, the brilliant team behind the hugely popular Genshin Impact.
