Game publisher Devolver Digital announces Summer Game Fest celebration showcase

The always so crazy Devolver Digital has announced another showcase for this year and this time it will be to celebrate the birthday of its mascot Volvy.

The strange looking mascot was introduced at the 2023 show as the returning retro mascot and will now turn 15 years old.

The exhibit is another one from June and will take place on June 7 at 5 pm Pacific Time and is expected to last 20 minutes. It will be part of the Summer Game Fest.

In previous years, Devolver Digital events have included parodies of other gaming conferences, strange countdowns, and a malfunctioning Suda51 mechanism. So while they’ve said it will be to celebrate and say happy birthday to Volvy, there’s no telling what other surprises the video game publisher will make during its brief time in the spotlight.

What we can expect from Summer Game Fest

The Summer Game Fest is where Devolver Digital will be hosting its birthday party, along with a host of other game developers and publishers.

The festival will stream live from the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles on Friday, June 7, and will feature world premieres, special guests, and a look at what’s next in gaming.

Several events have already been announced and the festival will take place in just a few weeks. A couple of days later, on June 9, Xbox announced that a Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 live stream will follow its annual Game Showcase.

Xbox will reveal what’s next and delve into an upcoming game.

Future of Play will also be present, and its live description says it will be “a harmless showcase that will be fun for the whole family.”

There will also be a separate exhibition that will “celebrate emotionally resonant video games that inspire optimism, joy and introspection.”

This will be followed by more than an hour of world premieres, exclusive trailers and announcements from Latin American game developers. Then, female-led studios will take center stage with the promise of deep dives and release date announcements.
