Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata will for the first time in three years hold a keynote speech at the upcoming Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco. His speech titled "Discovering New Development Opportunities" will open the three main days of GDC on Wednesday 25th March 9.00 AM (PST).

Here's a quote from the event director Meggan Scavio:

"The Game Developers Conference is thrilled to welcome Satoru Iwata back to the keynote stage. His previous talks at the GDC can be credited with setting the stage for much of the huge growth the games industry has since seen, and attendees continue to talk about how both lectures impacted their perspective on development. We are confident that Iwata's keynote this year will be added to the list of memorable GDC talks. Attendees are eager to know how he will inspire them this year."

Back in 2005 Iwata chose to use his keynote to reveal the first information on the technology in Nintendo's "Revolution", the console we have come to know as Wii. Whether this year's speech will hold any big revelations or not remains to be seen...
