Nintendo opts out of Leipzig GC 2008

Nintendo has decided not to attend Leipzig, preferring to focus on smaller events and national tours

Nintendo has announced that it will not be attending Games Convention 2008 in Leipzig this year.

In a statement, Nintendo of Europe indicated that it had many positive experiences with smaller, local events and national promotional tours.

The company intends to start a road show in Germany upon the conclusion of E3 2008, rather than attending "one central fair."

Nintendo did not rule out attending Games Convention 2009 in Cologne, however, saying it would analyse the situation before making a decision.
