After the huge success of the 2008 Edinburgh Interactive Festival (EIF), Nintendo has announced that it is once again partnering with this ever-popular Scottish event.
Nintendo's presence last year proved to be a huge success with the general public wowed by Nintendo's Cooking Guide: Can't decide what to eat? And the Japanese giant will no doubt be hoping for a similar response.
David Yarnton, General Manager Nintendo UK, said:
"We are very pleased to be a part of the Edinburgh Interactive Festival once again this year. The festival is unique in that it brings together all the different aspects and facets of our business under one roof and provides the perfect opportunity for us all to celebrate our industry's rich creative diversity. Edinburgh is an important platform for interactive entertainment and showcasing software to the public alongside TV, film, literature and comedy highlights the cultural worth and credibility of our industry to the UK and the world."
While Edinburgh Interactive Festival Chairman Chris Deering added:
"We are delighted to be partnering with Nintendo again. It's a free festival for the public and a great chance for everyone to come and take a look at some genuinely exciting developments within the industry. Nintendo's involvement as a partner will certainly add another dimension to the experience for anyone attending."
