Nintendo News | Game Convention Conferences Announced

With the Game Convention approaching fast, taking place in Leipzig, Germany on 23rd - 27th August, the organisers have decided to release a list of conferences. We've rounded up some of the more important ones for you below. All times are in 24-hour formatted Central European Time, and they are all scheduled to take place on the 23rd August:

  • Electronic Arts | 09.15 - 10.00 | "Highlights 2006/2007"
  • Nintendo | 10.15 - 11.15 | "Wii Prove Our Promise"
  • Konami Digital Entertainment | 11.30 - 12.30
  • Ubisoft | 12.00 - 13.00
  • Microsoft Xbox | 13.00 - 14.15
  • Electronic Arts/Nintendo | 14.00 - 15.00
  • Square Enix | 16.45 - 17.15
  • Sony Computer Entertainment Europe | 17.00 - 18.00
  • We believe that CET is currently two hours ahead of GMT at that time in the year, so subtract two hours from each of these times for the UK time (thanks, TimeZoneConverter!).

    It's uncertain what Nintendo will be announcing, or even if they'll show us anything new (we suppose it depends on how they're feeling at the time), but with them supposedly not showing up at the Tokyo Game Show in any way, shape or form then it's likely we'll hear something new. Apparently, the French Official Nintendo Magazine has declared five new titles will be on show, too, though this can't be verified at this time and must be taken as rumour.

    It's very interesting to note that, in case you didn't notice, both Electronic Arts and Nintendo have two conferences, their latter ones being a collaborative effort. Could EA and Nintendo be planning to unveil even more titles, or could they just be demonstrating the already announced ones in more detail?

    You can see a complete list of the conventions, including ones not listed here, in all their German glory here.

    Stick with C3 for more as it comes!

    There's a possibility, but the last official word was still 'September' for launch date and price.

    ~Getting on C3's massive tits since 2K5.~

    And I'm Dutch, what's your point?

    just saying that english is not my mother language..

    I swear it was on at a completely different time last year.

    Ah, I thought they said by September. My bad.

    Actually, I've just looked into it a bit for you. Seems some sources are saying 'by', others saying 'in'. I always thought it was just the latter. We shall see...

    It's been accounted for with that website I used I think. I think that's why it's two hours ahead (I'm sure it's usually one).

    EA Nintendo collabration is Nintendo confirming that they have bought out EA....Smilie

    I'm hoping we're going to see Pikmin Wii or Kid Icarus Wii. I'd also like to see a bit more from Pok

    Me also hopes for them games Mason, as well hopefully a Donkey Kong game on either DS (New Donkey Kong Country) or a follow up to DK64 and begs for some new SSBB footage along with Metriod and Zelda ooh i feel like such a slut
