The GDC (Game Developers Conference), has become “the” conference to keep an eye out for these past couple of years. As E3 slowly fades into the distance in terms of importance, other conferences specifically GDC have begun to absorb the limelight.
The past two years, Microsoft and Sony have delivered the keynotes at the GDC and now it’s Nintendo’s turn. During the keynotes of the past couple of years, a couple of renowned games were officially unveiled to the world. LittleBigPlanet and Gears of War 2.
Due to Sony, and Microsoft announcing their big projects, it’s being rumored Nintendo will be dropping a huge new bombshell on us. Will it be a new Zelda game? The Zelda announcement seems to be the major rumor that’s being speculated upon around the internet. The reason being is that the Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass was shown at the GDC, in 2006.
I’m not going to buy into the hype myself, as anything could really happen at the keynote this year. It could very well be a Zelda game. Or perhaps they’ll decide to show off a game that’s already been announced a little more in-depth (Punch-Out! perhaps?).
It’s always fun to imagine what could be, just don’t get your hopes up. Which, by viewing numerous forums and comments some people seem to be doing.
