As E3 is quickly approaching, plans are already under way for Game Developers Conference 2017. The conference is set for next February and the floor plans have been updated with information about various developer and publisher floor space. The most noticeable is Nintendo doesn’t seem to have a booth.

The Japanese company has opted out of the booth for the past two years now. This means they won’t be previewing their new NX console, set to release next March.

However, the company does have three business meeting rooms (conveniently marked with Bob-ombs).


Thanks , NeoGAF.

    Nintendo will really need to organise a series of events that will show off the NX. They seem to be skipping all the big Western conferences before the release of their new console. I wonder if they’ll demo it at TGS.

    Nintendo needs to get their shit together and talk about the 3DS because the 3DS is still around and still selling, and it actually has upcoming games THIS YEAR that people are excited for.

    No sense having a booth when you have nothing to talk about

    • azariosays

      you would think being a month before their new console release that they would, guess not

    • Dgnfly

      They have more then enough to talk about its just they’d rather ignore those questions.

    I kinda hope they will release the NX, with no adds, no interview, no conference reveal, nothing. I would laugh my ass off, if we find just randomly the NX in some gaming shops..

    GDC is cancer anyway.
