It's almost time for another Summer
Geoff Game Fest and new details have been released for the upcoming series of events, including details on Day of the Devs: SGF Edition and a partner list of participants who will feature in the two-hour show on Thursday 10th June.
While there are more companies "to be announced in the coming days", you may be disappointed to see that Nintendo doesn't feature in a first-party capacity. Although Nintendo has been a part of Keighley's The Game Awards shows in the past, it's not totally unexpected that the company won't have a presence in this Summer showcase. A Nintendo Direct event around the same period is practically a certainty at this point, and third-party Switch games will obviously feature in Geoff Keighley's event. However, at the time of writing, Nintendo doesn't appear to have anything lined up for Summer Game Fest itself.
The two-hour show — which will stream on Thursday, June 10 at 11 am PT / 2 pm ET / 6 pm GMT — will feature "the most highly anticipated games from more than 30 developers and publishers", as hosted by the organiser himself.
Here's the full list of participating publishers as per the official PR blurb:
Summer Game Fest will include participating from the following partners: 2K; Activision; Atlus; Bandai Namco; Bloober Team; Capcom; Coffee Stain; Deep Silver; Devolver Digital; Digital Extremes; DotEmu; Electronic Arts; Epic Games; Focus Entertainment; Frost Giant Studios; Humble Games; Level Infinite; Mediatonic; MiHoYo; Netflix; PlayStation; Raw Fury; Samsung Gaming Hub; Sega; Skybound Games; SQUARE ENIX; Steam; Studio MDHR; Tribeca Festival; Warner Bros. Games; Xbox; and more to be announced in the coming days.
Additionally, once the main Summer Game Fest show has wrapped up, Day of the Devs: SGF Edition will immediately follow, highlighting a bunch of indie games and hopefully featuring the lovely Tim Schafer from Double Fine. This second showcase — DOTD: SGFE, as we're sure people will be calling it — will feature several world premieres, too. More details below:
Day of the Devs: SGF Edition will feature a world premiere look at a brand new IP from ustwo games (creators of Monument Valley), as well as a world premiere of the next game from Michael Frei (creator behind Plug & Play, KIDS) & Raphaël Munoz. Plus a brand-new trailer and some exciting news about Gummy Cat’s Bear and Breakfast and more announcements from some fresh (and also familiar) developers including: Coin Crew Games, Ewoud van der Werf, Florian Veltman & Baptiste Portefaix, HiWarp, Madison Karrh, Max Inferno, Shared Memory, Soda Den, Two Star Games and Wishfully. The showcase will also feature titles from asobu, a community founded to support and evangelize independent game development in Japan and Japanese games abroad.
Additionally, viewers will be treated to a musical performance from Peter Berkman of Anamanaguchi, featuring music from DIE SOFT’s upcoming Little Nemo and the Guardians of Slumberland.
