Miyamoto To Keynote Digital Contents Expo
Mario creator to speak about game production work.
This year's annual Digital Contents Expo will be held from October 22 through October 25 in Tokyo's Odaiba area. A part of the CoFesta series of events, this event offers visitors a chance to see the latest in digital contents technology through exhibits highlighting recent research and artwork. It's split into a number of sub events, including ConTEX, Asiagraph, International 3d Fair, and Digital Contents Grand Prix.
That's all swell, but here's the real area of interest for gaming fans. Set to give the keynote to commemorate the opening of Asiagraph is none other than Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto! The creator of Mario and savior of the modern game industry and, indeed, the world, will speak about his game production work over the past 30 years.
Miyamoto's speech will be held at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (the same venue as last month's Final Fantasy XIII Premiere) on the 24th starting at 13:30.
