Smash Bros. and Kirby's Masahiro Sakurai to Headline This Year's CEDEC


This year's CEDEC (Computer Entertainment Developers Conference, formerly CESA Developers Conference) will, like always, have three keynote speakers. Heading up the bunch, as far as gamers are concerned at least, is Sora's Masahiro Sakurai.

Sakurai, who's currently working away on the new 3DS and Wii U Smash Bros. games, will deliver a speech on August 20. CESA did not share the topic of his speech in its announcement today.

Before you start anticipating a Smash Bros. trailer, CEDEC conferences tend to be totally industry focused. There probably won't be any news or announcements, but we may get some insights into Sakurai's development methodology.

The other two keynote speakers are Yuichiro Anzai, chairman of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, and Yuusei Uesugi, senior artist at Industrial Light & Magic. For a full schedule, see the CEDEC official site.
