Masahiro Sakurai, the man behind Kirby, the Smash Bros. franchise, and Kid Icarus: Uprising, will be headlining the CEDEC (Computer Entertainment Developers Conference) on August 20th in Japan. It’s currently unknown what the contents of this speech will be.

Even after Nintendo announced that Sakurai’s team will be working with Namco Bandai on the next Smash Bros games, there are people that want to know more about the game. Unfortunately, you’re probably going to have to keep waiting for any more info to come out. CEDEC tends to be completely industry focused, so Sakurai’s speech will most likely be about his development strategies.
