1,000 Indie Developers Possibly Interested In Developing For Wii U Web Framework

black_wii_u

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata claims that the company has spoken to over one thousand indie developers about bringing their titles to Wii U. Iwata says they were approached regarding the Nintendo Web Framework which was announced during the Games Developers Conference in March. The Nintendo Web Framework uses a number of open web technologies, including HTML 5 and JavaScript. Here’s what he had to say.

“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.”

Thanks, Eric

  1. Indie developers are the start of new third party talents, and even whole new third party companies.
    Any company that helps them survive and thrive stands to get themselves a certain amount of clout with said up-and-coming devs, so for all three of them, supporting indies is a form of future-proofing for future epic third-party titles.

    It’s great to hear that Nintendo is getting serious about this particular field.

    1. Ignoring 3D Mario on 3DS has sold 8 million copies. Never under estimate Mario. Mario sells world over, remember the big blue marble we live on is not America only. PS4 should watch the Wii U cautiously, now that we know the graphical fidelity between the Wii U and PS4 is but a neighbors fence away.

    2. Almost 50 million 3DSs sold, 4 million PSVitas, Almost 4 million Wii Us sold. Crawl back into your cave basement dweller in mind and see Nintendo rise. By the way FFXV and KH3 is on the xboxdone. Cut you down to size didn’t I?

      1. there is a rumor that Iwata confirmed that he says that are several games from third party that will be on WiiU. The WiiU had the problem of having a slow start
        The Vita was the successor of an already dead console, so it is obvious to be low selling
        Ps4 may increase the sell due to connectivity
        let it be KH3

    3. U do realize nintendo has the 3ds which either way will out sell the ps4. also sony spent no time to talk about the vita they pretty much ignore it, Sony has not revealed release dates for their games and system, They have almost have nothing to apeal to japanesse market (final fantasy and kingdom hearts will not come til late 2015 or 2016), They don’t have the best killer exclusive that sells Gran Turismo is what sells on playstation but they putting it on 3 instead, but over all they don’t have that much either but a few games that are ports, multiplatform and few god exclusives but its almost in same position as the wii u, the market has changed. moblie even though i hate is on the rise sony also will also find them selfs fighting the tablets and crap as well.

  6. Nintendo should make a Nintendo Direct solely for the Indie games once it reaches critical mass (high quality indie games I should say). It will help in the promotion of these games in Wii U.

  8. certainly like your web site but you have
    to check the spelling on several of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I
    in finding it very troublesome to tell the truth then again I’ll
    certainly come back again.
