JFo Posted July 21, 2004 Report Share Posted July 21, 2004 From IGN: First the bad news. According to the magazine [Nintendo Dream], Nintendo will not hold a Space World event this year. This goes against rumors pointing to the contrary. Space World, in case you're not too keen on your Nintendo history, was an all-Nintendo event held yearly in Japan in late August or early September until two years ago. Many years ago, the event was called Shoshinkai and saw the world debut of Mario 64 in the N64's infancy. That's somewhat disappointing, even though there would be no chance of me flying to Japan to attend the event. It was usually a good place to get some updates on soon-to-be-released games and fresh impressions from the general gaming public about them. It is not, however, all that surprising since the Big N hasn't held a Space World since the debut of the Game Cube back in 2001 (if I remember correctly). While we're on the subject, did anyone here ever attend one of those Cube Clubs Nintendo had during the first two years of the GameCube? I went to both of them when they were at the Mall of the Universe (sometimes called the Mall of America) and it was an absolute blast. It was my first real shot at playing such games as Rogue Squadron II, Super Smash Bros. Melee, The Wind Waker and Metroid Prime. Needless to say, I had an absolute blast at them and missed them in their absence last year. I suppose it would be too much to hope for their return this year. They may not have been as big as Space World, but they were good enough for the Nintendo fanboy in me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
