NCL President to address TGS, even though his company is not exhibiting at the expo.
According to Famitsu's website, Nintendo Co. Ltd. President Satoru Iwata will be giving a nearly one hour address to the Tokyo Game Show on September 17 at 11:00 AM. Iwata may be using this high-profile event to announce more details on the Revolution system, even though Nintendo is not exhibiting at TGS this year (as usual). Incidentally, Microsoft exec Robbie Bach is speaking just one hour earlier than Iwata.
Iwata last spoke at TGS in 2003; his new keynote will address the current state of the industry and the future of gaming, twenty years after the Famicom. He is expected to discuss the perils of modern game complexity and Nintendo's strategy to save the Japanese game industry. The Tokyo Game Show is held September 16-18 at the Makuhari Messe convention center, near Tokyo. The second and third days are open to the public.
