The Nintendo Switch eShop is full of indies and that isn’t stopping any time soon.
In a recent Nintendo shareholders meeting, senior executive officer Susumu Tanaka talked about working with indie devs on both Wii U and Switch. In the future, Nintendo is looking to release 20 – 30 indies on the Switch eShop per week.
“We started working with indie developers during the Wii U generation,” said Tanaka. “For Nintendo Switch, we set up a development environment that supports Unity middleware, which is used on smartphones and other platforms. We are also actively engaging with indie developers at video game-focused shows and other events in different regions. We also had a Nintendo booth at the BitSummit indie game event held in Kyoto, where we showcased some games. Some of the indie games already released have gone on to become million sellers worldwide. In the future, we are looking to release around 20 to 30 indie games on Nintendo Switch per week, and we definitely expect to see some great games among them,” he added.
