Organizers of the fourth Montreal International Game Summit, scheduled to take place November 27-28th, have revealed further speaker line-up details, including sessions by Nintendo's Yoshiaki Koizumi (Legend of Zelda), Braid creator Jonathan Blow, and EA's Randy Smith. The speakers join the previously announced keynote by industry vet David Perry. Koizumi was script writer for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and also served as assistant director of Super Mario 64 as well as contributor to other Zelda titles including Ocarina of Time Majora’s Mask. In addition to Braid's Jonathan Blow, the speaker lineup will also include Bioware's Steven Gilmour, PopCap's James Gwertzman, and Ubisoft's Clint Hocking. The conference will also see sessions by EA's Chris Hecker (Spore), Retro Studios' Michael Kelbaugh, thatgamecompany's Kellee Santiago (fl0w), and former Ion Storm/Looking Glass and now EA designer Randy Smith. MIGS organizers say that this year's summit will include a new business lounge, a personalized meeting management service for industry professionals, and has a "dynamic new look," which it says enhances "Montreal’s reputation as a centre for creativity and innovation." More information on the summit and further line-up and session details can be found at the conference's official website.
