In case you were wondering why we didn’t mention anything about Nintendo in our news about next week’s Game Developer’s Conference, well Chris Kohler over at Wired has a bit of information as to why. Check it out:
Due to a pending major stock trade, Nintendo executives and developers will not be able to discuss any “forward-looking” information at next week’s Game Developers Conference, Wired News learned today.
Nintendo developers Shigeru Miyamoto, Eiji Aonuma, and Koji Kondo will be speaking to the press during GDC, but have been given specific instructions to not talk about anything that would constitute new information. For example, Aonuma can discuss past games in the Zelda series, but will not be able to answer any questions about upcoming games like Zelda: Phantom Hourglass.
The same gag order will apply to Nintendo executives Reggie Fils-Aime and Perrin Kaplan.
Gag orders are fun for everyone, huh kids?
