Nintendo devs to talk Wii Fit, WiiWare and Brawl at GDC

Secrets to be spilled

Developers for recent and upcoming Nintendo products will be addressing GDC 2008 attendees this month, specifically speaking about Wii Fit, WiiWare and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Wii Balance Board producer Takao Sawano will be leading the charge on February 20 at around 4pm, no doubt giving a retrospective into exactly how he made the first game controller to grace the cover of Cosmo. Or so we predict.

First thing in the morning on February 22, Takashi Aoyama will give some insight into the internal workings of the Wii.

He'll also talk a bit about WiiWare (Or Wii Software for the UK, for those who want to get all nationalistic) which will hopefully give us some insight into something that might as well be in development in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory for all the information we have on it.

Lastly, Masahiro Sakurai will follow Aoyama with a talk about Super Smash Bros. Brawl and how he managed to cram a couple of hundred Nintendo references just into the title screen, and more.

We're not sure what time zone Nintendo was speaking of when it gave us this information, but we're betting on them being in PST. So for our UK readers, that means midnight on the 20th, and 5pm and 6:30pm on the 22nd.
