The Nintendo 3DS eShop now has a region-specific section so you can look for locally made games. This is only available in Australia at this precise moment in time, but is due to be rolled out to other regions in due course. The move is to allow gamers to support indie developers in their own country. The majority of Australian games on display for download are from Sydney-based developers Nnooo. Here’s what the developers had to say.
“It’s great for us, the other Aussie devs and Australia to be recognised like this in the Nintendo eShop, not just in Australia but across Europe too.”
“We’ve never seen a separate “Developed in” shelf on the eShop before and we think it’s a great idea. Hopefully we’ll see other countries featured too.”
