Nintendo Space World  (formerly called Shoshinkai  (Japanese: 初心会 )) is avideo game trade show hosted by Nintendo. First held in 1989, it is typified by the unveiling of new consoles or handhelds. Unlike most other video game tradeevents, Nintendo World is not held annually or at any other set interval;Nintendo usually makes a decision regarding whether to hold the show any timein the year. It has historically always taken place in Japan, either in Kyoto, whereNintendo's headquarters are located, or at the Makuhari Messe conventioncenter in Chiba, Japan. Nintendo Power   explains: Q: What is Famicom Space World? A: Space World isa free show for the public that follows the one-day Shoshinkai. Gamers who wishto attend need only pick up an entry pass at any official Nintendo retail locationin Japan. [1]:13 The systems that have been unveiled at the show series include the Nintendo GameCube, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo 64, and 64DD.

Project Reality's name was changedto Ultra 64 . Shoshinkai 1995 [edit] The 7th Shoshinkai show was held on November 22-24, 1995. [10]   Popular Mechanics  described the scene where hordes of Japanese schoolkids huddled in the cold outside an exhibition hall in a small town near Tokyo, the electricity of anticipationclearly rippling through their ranks. [11] The show featured the public unveiling of the newly renamed Nintendo 64 console, with thirteen games. [12]  This included twoplayable game prototypes ( Super Mario 64  and Kirby Ball 64 ) and a videotape containing a total of three minutes of veryearly footage of eleven other Nintendo 64 games. Of all these presented titles, the development of Super Mario 64  wasreportedly the most advanced, though only 50 percent complete. [11][13][14]   Zelda 64  was shown in the form of an abstracttechnical and thematic demonstration video, where Next Generation  magazine said Well, the fact is that the videotapesequences shown at Shoshinkai bear very little resemblance to what the final product will actually look like. Spectacular scenes of a surprisingly large Link clad in polished armor are most likely to end up in cut-scenes rather than representing theactual play. . [15][16] Nintendo made its first announcement of the 64DD peripheral, saying it would launch by the end of 1996, [17]  though releasingvirtually no technical specifications. [11] Shoshinkai 1996 [edit] The 8th Shoshinkai show was held on November 22–24, 1996 [18]  and was located at the Makuhari Messe convention center in Chiba, Japan. This show bore the first demonstration of the 64DD, which IGN reported was one of the biggest items of the show along with first-party titles. [19]  Nintendo's Director of Corporate Communications, Perrin Kaplan, made the company'sfirst official launch window announcement for 64DD, scheduled for late 1997 in Japan. [20] The 64DD system was shown in its own display booth with the hardware specifications having been finalized, according toNintendo of America's Chairman Howard Lincoln. The system played an improvised conversion of the Super Mario 64 cartridge game onto a 64DD disk in order to demonstrate the storage device. The booth also demonstrated the process of rendering audience members' photographed faces onto 3D avatars and shapes—a feature which was ultimately incorporatedand released in 2000 as Mario Artist: Talent Studio  and the Capture Cassette for 64DD. [21][22]  Another 64DD title indevelopment was Creator  , a music and animation game by Software Creations, [23]  the same UK company that had made Sound Tool   for the Nintendo Ultra 64 development kit. They touted the game's ability to be integrated into other games,allowing a player to replace any such game's textures and possibly create new levels and characters. There was no playableversion of Creator   available at this show, but the project was later absorbed into Mario Artist: Paint Studio  (1999). [23][24][25] Reportedly several developers attended the show to learn how to develop for 64DD, some having traveled from the US for the 64DD presentation and some having received 64DD development kits. [26]  Included in the early roster of committed 64DDdevelopers, Rare officially discounted any rumors of the peripheral's impending pre-release cancellation. [27] described the presentation of Zelda 64  as very quick shots on videotape . [21]   Yoshi's Island 64  debuted in a shortvideo, and was eventually released as Yoshi's Story  . [28]   The biggest surprise of the show according to IGN was the debut of the Jolting Pak, [19]  which would eventually launch as the Rumble Pak in a bundle with the upcoming Star Fox 64 . Space World 1997 [edit] The 9th show was renamed to Space World, held on November 21-23, 1997. [29]  It featured a very early prototype of  Pokémon Gold   and Silver  , [30]  featuring two starting Pokémon who don't appear in the final game, and an early Chikorita. Thegame would not be completed until 1999, by which point it would have largely changed.IGN explained that the 64DD's notoriously repeated launch delays were so significant, and the company's software library wasso dependent upon the 64DD's launch, that this also caused the skipping of the 1998 Space World. The event had beendelayed to early 1999 and then again to November 1999, reportedly specifically due to the lack of 64DD launch titles. [31] Space World 1999 [edit] The 10th Space World show was held on August 27-29, 1999, [32]   Paper Mario , EarthBound 64 , and many other games wereannounced and shown. Space World 2000 [edit] The 11th Space World show was held on August 24-26, 2000, [33]  a compilation trailer of Nintendo licenses running onGameCube hardware was displayed. Some games revealed then were Super Smash Bros. Melee , Luigi's Mansion , Metroid Prime , Meowth's Party  , Mario Kart: Double Dash!!  , Kameo: Elements of Power  , Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius , Batman:Vengeance , and the technology demonstrations called Super Mario 128   and The Legend of Zelda 128  . [34] Space World 2001 [edit]    The 12th Space World show was held on August 24-26, 2001 [35]  and was the last Space World consumer event, featuring theupcoming GameCube and recently released Game Boy Advance. A short clip of Super Mario Sunshine  was shown in its earlyform.Some speculated another Space World consumer event would be held in 2005 for the formal unveiling of Nintendo's nextconsole, Revolution (the development name for the Wii). This speculation was incorrect as Nintendo chose to fully reveal atE3 2006, the details of the system which would be renamed to Wii . However, they did hold an event called Nintendo World2006 that showcased the Wii and Nintendo DS.Nintendo later held an event called Nintendo World 2011 in Tokyo from the January 8–10, 2011. The company gave thespecific details on the Japanese launch of the Nintendo 3DS at this exhibition. [36] See also [edit] E3Nintendo Direct References [edit]1. ^   Nintendo Power . No. 79. Nintendo.
