That’s right everyone! About a week from now, GDC 2011 will finally be here! For those of you who have no clue what it is, the Game Developers Conference is an event held once a year where many video game developers and media companies gather together to share and discuss their latest developments including hardware and software; many companies show off their upcoming video games during this time.
More after the jump!
Nintendo President, Satora Iwata, will be delivering the keynote as usual. The event will take place on Wednesday, March 2nd from 9:00 to 10:00 am. It will be titled “Video Games Turn 25: A Historical Perspective and Vision for the Future”, which indicates that Iwata will most likely focus on other material besides the 3DS (which has been stealing the spotlight the past few months) including video game anniversaries like Metroid and Zelda.
In the past, a few special video games were announced at GDC, including Phantom Hourglass, and the latest entry in the series, the announcement of Spirit Tracks.
And finally to get to the main point, we hope this event would be a chance for Skyward Sword to shine and finally be fully revealed! There should be a high chance for anything new to be revealed regarding Skyward Sword since its predecessors in the series were shown at GDC. We shouldn’t have our hopes up too high to avoid any possible disappointment, but since the Zelda series has just turned 25 years old a few days ago, we couldn’t shake the feeling that Nintendo has something special planned up.
What are your predictions for GDC? And what would you expect to be revealed from Skyward Sword? Perhaps a new trailer, new demo, or the official release date announcement? Let us know what you think in the comments below and stay tuned for next week as we cover the event.
