Shigeru Miyamoto Giving GDC Keynote

January 22nd, 2007 . by Josh

Legendary developer Shigeru Miyamoto will be giving a Game Developers Conference keynote. According to this will be Miyamoto's first keynote since 1999.

"The Game Developers Conference is a place for developers to learn from one another, and I think it is safe to say that every member of the community has at one time or another fantasised about having Shigeru Miyamoto as a mentor and teacher," said Jamil Moledina, executive director of the GDC.

"By guiding us through his creative vision with a keynote at this year's GDC, Miyamoto is allowing all attendees this incomparable privilege."

For those who are unaware of who Shigeru Miyamoto you need to pull your head out of the ground. He is the man who brought us Donkey Kong, Mario Bros. and Legend of Zelda. One could even say he's the reason why Nintendo focuses on game play and innovation, rather than features and graphical boosts.
