Key Japanese designers to feature at Nordic Game

Keiji Inafune and Goichi Suda both slated to give talks at event in May

The organisers of this year's Nordic Game conference have announced that two key game development figures from Japan will be giving talks at the event.

Capcom's Keiji Inafune, producer on the Onimusha and Dead Rising games, and Grasshopper Manufacture's Goichi Suda - better known as Suda 51, the man behind Killer7 and No More Heroes - will be two of the big names at the event in May.

"Having Keiji Inafune and Goichi Suda join Nordic Game this year highlights the strong and growing relationship between the Japanese and Nordic games communities," said Tom Felices, executive director of the event. "It will offer attendees a unique opportunity to meet two of the most exciting game creators today."

Other speakers also confirmed for the conference, taking place in Malmo, Sweden, include key representatives from EA DICE, Insomniac, Media Molecule and Grin. Network members are able to set their attendance at the event and begin arranging meetings now.
