Nintendo Space World

Nintendo Space World

Nintendo World, formerly called Nintendo Space World, Nintendo 64 Space World, Super Famicom Space World, Famicom Space World, and Shoshinkai (初心会?), is a video game trade show hosted by Nintendo, typically to unveil new consoles or handhelds. Unlike most other video game trade events, Nintendo World is not held annually or at any other set interval; Nintendo usually makes a decision to hold the show or not by mid-July. It has historically always taken place inside Japan, in either Kyoto (where Nintendo is headquartered) or Tokyo. The event was first held in 1989.

Notable events

At the 1995 Shoshinkai show, games in two of Nintendo's most familiar series were unveiled to the public, along with a short test of the Nintendo 64 console; Zelda 64, the working title for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Super Mario 64. Super Mario 64 was near finished and was soon due for release. Zelda OOT, however, was not to release for another three years, due to delays of both in-game development and hardware (delays with the Nintendo 64DD).

During the 2000 Space World, a compilation trailer of Nintendo licenses running on GameCube hardware excited many fans. Some games revealed then were Luigi's Mansion, Metroid Prime, Meowth's Party, Super Mario 128, and The Legend of Zelda 128.[1] The last Space World occurred in 2001, featuring the then recently released Nintendo GameCube and Game Boy Advance. Some speculated another Space World would be held in 2005 for the formal unveiling of Nintendo's next console, Revolution (the development name for the Wii). This speculation was incorrect as Nintendo chose to fully reveal the details of the Wii at E3 2006. However, they did hold an event called Nintendo World 2006 that showcased the Wii and Nintendo DS.

Nintendo later held an event in Tokyo from the 8th-10th of January 2011 called "Nintendo World 2011." The company gave the specific details on the Japanese launch of the Nintendo 3DS at this exhibition.[2]
