Japan’s BitSummit Event Returns In May, Here Are All The Details

The fifth annual BitSummit, a Japanese indie game-focused event, is just a month away, and we now have many of the details about what it has in store for attendees.

Taking place May 20-21 in Japan, BitSummit–which gets a different name and theme each year–has been dubbed A 5th of BitSummit. Platinum Games veteran Atsushi Inaba will deliver the keynote, while both Nintendo and Twitch will serve as the event’s main sponsors.

Noted Japanese developers Koji Igarashi (of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and now Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night fame), Masaya Matsuura (PaRappa the Rapper), and Suda 51 (No More Heroes) will all be at the event and are said to have “exciting news about their upcoming projects” to share. BitSummit will also see the return of musician Professor Sakamoto, who plays 8-bit music while wearing a Famicom on his head. It’s pretty great.

This year’s event will again be located at the Miyako Messe in Kyoto, Japan. It’s open to the public, with a two-day pass for adults being priced at only 2,000 yen (about $20).

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
