retro area

Stay tuned!

We are happy to welcome you this year at the retro area of gamescom again. You can expect popular classics from the past, new games for your retro console, interviews, live music, technology and much more.

But 2021 you can not only look forward to the retro area. Because both retro area and cosplay village will go live at WildMics. Each of the two fan-favorites will host part of the day. First it's all about cosplays, music, arts & props and workshops. After that it will continue with game developers, collectors, fans and connoisseurs of classic games as well as new games in modern retro style. In addition, there will be familiar faces of the scene and of course there will be gaming with and against each other.

Mháire Stritter from OrkenspalterTV hosts the cosplay stream, Joachim Hesse is the host of the retro show. They will be supported by Tommy Krappweis & Band as well as Sven Vößing and the creative team of 'bumm film'.
