This year's Game Developers Conference, held March 23-27 in San Francisco, will kick off with a bang; event organizers have announced Nintendo president Satoru Iwata will keynote the festivities with an address entitled "Discovering New Development Opportunities," his first GDC keynote since 2006.
Even though the San Francisco-based Game Developers Conference is designed to focus on developers, the amount of worldwide talent gathered under one roof makes for some newsworthy events.
2009's event, taking place March 23-27, will be no different, as event organizers revealed today Nintendo president Satoru Iwata will be hosting the keynote.
Iwata's talk is called "Discovering New Development Opportunities," but no other details about the keynote have been revealed so far. In previous years, however, Iwata has used the GDC platform to provide details worth paying attention to, including key points about what would become the Wii in 2005.
The keynote is scheduled for Wednesday, March 25, 2009 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. PST, and MTV Multiplayer will be there to cover it.
