    Hello, Japanese readers! Are you interested in video game development? Programming? Art? Music? Sound effects? Do you like Nintendo? Well, it's your lucky day, because Nintendo Game Seminar is back and it wants you to participate!

    This year's foci will be CSS, HTML5, JavaScript and Nintendo's Web Framework for the WiiU, the free seminars will be held in Tokyo and Osaka, however you can also participate Online.

    What awaits you there are lectures from Nintendo's staff in Nintendo's classroom, culminating in your very own, published Nintendo games! Last time, Nintendo Game Seminar games were distributed freely via Download Stations in Japan - perhaps this time around, yours will be made available on the eShop?

    The seminars will take place from July until March 2014 every Friday from 18:30 to 21:00 JST.

    Have fun, lucky Japanese members!

    Translation:
    "Come and pay us lots of money to make games for us! We will get all of the profits from the games you make, get lots of profit from you suckers who actually pay us for this "camp", and we will not give you a single dime for anything you make for us! Join today! Who wouldn't want to pay us tons of money, work hard on making games, then get absolutely none of the profits?"
    Yea, no thanks. I'm sure it'll attract a ton of people that can't see through this scheme though.

    Nevermind all of the above. Just found this:
    Since it's free, it'd actually be a very good idea.

    Do you know the concept of an "internship"?

    I'm glad we agree. I probably won't understand eff-- all, but I might steal a peek every now and then, just to see what's up. This is going to be interesting, I like this kind of events.

    To be fair, I forgot to mention that those are free myself - I've edited the news post since so that there's no further confusion. :P

    Someone who would participate online should record this and add subtitles (make a Nintendo Game Seminar Diary).

    Would be fascinating to watch.

    I feel I could really use that seminar. CSS? As in Cascading Style Sheets*? I really thought that was just to make it easier for websites to have a uniform look. And also: isn't HTML5 for...y'know...websites themselves? Sure, the extensions allow for programming of games (probably without having to resort to things like flash), but...is any nintendo game actually written in CSS/HTML5?


    Please don't make fun of me if I'm totally missing the ball here. I really don't know this. :unsure:


    *my guess is they're not learning counterstrike source

    You can do quite a bit with a sliver of dynamic CSS and it does handle image placement. HTML5 is for multimedia type things including games. I can not speak to any being made already but ask it the other way- could you make a Nintendo game (probably classic or handheld style) in it?

    Is there someone here at GBAtemp that can participate Online in these seminars (and also register/record them somehow..)?

    I think I remember a HTML5 dungeon crawler of some sort...

    EDIT: BrowserQuest by Mozilla is powered by HTML5

    I reckon some HTML5 skills would not go amiss so see if you could get the skeleton of an 8 or 16 bit era game going on

    Alternatively


    No flash, silverlight, java or anything needed for this one.

    OP forgot to mention Javascript. I'm guessing this is to get devs accustomed to the Nintendo Web Framework mentioned before.
