During Monday’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo of America confirmed that the company would have a big presence at this year’s IndieCade festival in Culver City, CA this year. They’ll also be hosting a panel for indie game developers on the steps needed to bring their works to the Nintendo eShop both for the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. According to Steve Singer, Nintendo of America’s vice president of licensing, some of the titles that will be showcased are the best indie developers have to offer.
The Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games showcased in this year’s Nintendo IndieCade booth represent the cutting edge of creativity and innovation for indie game development. They also represent some of the highest rated and most respected games currently being produced. Nintendo is embracing developers who are extremely passionate, letting them freely harness the tools available on Nintendo platforms to create fantastic and unique experiences. We are helping independent developers bring their creative visions to life and into consumers’ hands to enjoy.”
