Two changes to the D.I.C.E. Summit speaker lineup surfaced today on the event's official Web site. First is the deletion of Monolith president Samantha Ryan, who apparently will no longer present.
Taking up the slack is a coup for the program: Keiichi Yano, cofounder of indie game development studio iNiS, has been added to the speaker lineup. Yano comes to the event with an impressive background: iNiS is the studio that created Gitaroo Man, Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, and the recently released Elite Beat Agents.
Yano is also scheduled to present at the upcoming Game Developers Conference in March.
