Nintendo has released its handheld 3DS console and unveiled its next-generation Wii U console this year, but neither has changed the fortunes of the video game giant, which has seen its once-dominant position challenged. Has a change in the industry toward lower-priced games for smartphones or tablets caught the Kyoto firm flat-footed or will one of Japan’s greatest corporations again find its way? Dan Sloan, author of Playing to Wiin: Nintendo and Video Game Industry’s Greatest Comeback discusses the outlook of Nintendo with moderator Jamin Warren, Founder, Kill Screen.

Followed by a book signing and reception.
