The game design conferences, or GDCs, are held each fall to promote the game design process.
They are held at a few major U.S. game companies, including Electronic Arts, Sony, and Square Enix.
Game designers typically pitch their games to them before they decide whether or not they want to work on them.
The games are then shown off at trade shows.
It’s a lot of work, especially for a small game company like Nintendo, which has just five employees.
Nintendo is currently working on its first-ever console, which will feature the Wii U’s GamePad.
Nintendo has yet to make an announcement on when the new console will launch.
Game design conferences also help game developers understand the market and how they can sell their games.
They’re also a great way for game makers to gauge their fans and market share.
The Nintendo Switch is slated to be a console with a much higher graphical fidelity than any console in the past.
Game designer Tomoaki Maeda says the Switch is the best console that Nintendo has made.
GameDesignCon2017, in the United States, is set for Oct. 5-7 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
