Iwata: Nintendo eager to provide opportunity for indies
Nintendo’s pursuit of encouraging independent developers to publish their games on Wii U has been well documented this year, especially alongside their Nintendo Web Framework announcement at GDC 13.
Satoru Iwata has reaffirmed such commitment, stating that they “received great feedback” regarding the initiative and that they have been in contact “with more than a thousand parties.”
He continued, “Since then, we have received great feedback. We have been in contact with more than a thousand parties.
“Even though software for dedicated gaming devices has become advanced and complex, we have been working on those new approaches to expand the range of developers for the platform. As digital business expands, there will be even more opportunities for us to do business with small, independent software developers.”
