Nintendo Leaving SpaceWorld?

Rumors continue to fly that Nintendo Co. Ltd. is leaving its private SpaceWorld Expo for TGS.

Nintendo's Yoshio Hongo gave some insight into Nintendo's future game show plans in the latest issue of Japan's The 64 Dream.

Q: Will Nintendo be joining the next Tokyo Game Show? A: We think we should. Zelda will be out by this fall, and the next TGS will be held just before its release. It's good timing. I can't say that we will definitely join the next TGS, but we are thinking about it positively, because TGS-goers are completely different from SpaceWorld attendees.

Ed. Note: For the record, and until Nintendo makes a definitive statement one way or the other, SpaceWorld is scheduled for this November at Chiba's Makuhari Messe. The next Tokyo Game Show will be held on October 9 and 10 at the same location.
