Nintendo to Take Part in Kyoto Games Event
No TGS showing from the big N this year, but a separate showing in its home town.
The Tokyo Game Show is September's big gaming event here in Japan. But, the largest game publisher around, Nintendo, presumably won't be taking part.
A TGS snub is usual fare for the Kyoto giant. But this year, Nintendo will be taking part in a big September event, separate from the Tokyo-based show.
Titled Kyoto Cross Media Experience 2009 (Kyoto CMEX 2009), the event will be held in Kyoto from September 26 through October 4. This event is a part of the larger Japan International Contents Festival (CoFesta), a series of events that also includes TGS.
Nintendo has yet to share specifics on its plans for the event. Details will be announced in a future update at the Kyoto CMEX official site.
