Epic Games’ high-profile design director Cliff Bleszinski has become the newest entrant to GDC’s line-up of industry speakers.

The March event will hear Bleszinski talk a broad variety of subjects. He will argue that “marketing and PR are not only important to a game's promotion, but to its actual design and implementation.”

Also confirmed to speak at the show will be Nintendo 3DS producer Hideki Konno, who will discuss development matters on the upcoming handheld.

These are the latest of a rush of developers set to speak at the GDC as the event celebrates an impressive 25 years since its debut.

To mark the occasion, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata will give a keynote at the event.

GDC runs from March 3-4 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

The full package of events begins February 28th.

Early registration discounts ends January 24th.
