Miyamoto to share secrets as keynote of this year’s GDC

As if this year’s Game Developers Conference already wasn’t a hot ticket for those of us in the industry, now comes along the announcement that Nintendo main man Shigeru Miyamoto will deliver the keynote speech on Thursday, March 8. From the GDC:

Shigeru Miyamoto is perhaps the world’s most recognized video game developer, creator of industry icons like Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong and Nintendogs.  In addition, he is the behind-the-scenes engine of innovation for many other notable Nintendo breakthroughs.

In his keynote address at the 2007 Game Developers Conference, Shigeru Miyamoto will reveal how a singular creative vision drives his work, not only in terms of his world-renown software, but also in generating key technologies, including the current global phenomena, Nintendo DS and Wii.  And he will challenge the audience to apply his approach in their own distinctive styles.

Don’t worry guys and gals, plans on getting Miyamoto to wear the robot helmet are already in motion.
