Over 50 Indie Games Using Unity Coming To Wii U eShop

Damon Baker, Senior Manager of Marketing at Nintendo’s of America’s Licensing department, has confirmed to Siliconera that there are over 50 indie titles using Unity coming to the Wii U eShop. Baker promised that there’s plenty of Unity content on the way.

“Over the course of this show, we have nine games on display. We have 17 that are currently in the pipeline, that have been submitted. So they will all be out within the next two months. And then, we have another fifty that are waiting in the wings, that are coming; so we’ve got a lot of Unity content on the way.”

Thanks, N-Dub Nation

    1. That would be genius for Nintendo, it’s hard to find cheap old games on GC and GBA. I would love to replay Emarald.


      Here’s why it’s important:

      Have you ever imagined playing an old classic that you loved and wanted it to be online to show off your skills or even play with friends and family that live to far away to play the game with them. Imagine Super Mario World with online and voice chat, Mario kart with online and voice chat or even super smash bros! from N64 with online multiplayer and voice chat the list can go on and on this can be something that I know will be a hit! We together can make this happen if we show nintendo that we really want this! This would be amazing!

      1. Yeah cause every other indie game is a shooter. Makes so much sense. And I also never knew full blown 3d games are shooters.

  1. ps4 has infamous second son while xbox one has titan fall. what does wiiu offer… just indie games. am just bored tekken on wii u everytime because there nothing good. may be i should get an ac 4.

      * Shovel Knight
      * Cubemen 2

      …and more.

      1. How can you forget Mario kart? Easily one of the best out at least one of the best games that will come out this year and for Wii U, I can’t wait to play against my friend and have some of the best times of my life like I had with Mario kart Wii.

        Heck, I don’t think I need more games to keep me amused the rest of the year

        1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

          Did you see the latest pictures of a new track?…

          The tracks this time are going to be something else…

      2. 1) Agreed
        2) Agreed
        3) Agreed
        4) MEGA AGREED
        5) Agreed
        6) That game is coming out on all platforms
        7) That game will be on PS4/X1/PC too ….
        8) Isn’t out yet
        9) Isn’t out yet
        10) Isn’t out yet
        etc etc etc

      3. You also might mention that some of those games are not available yet. There should be a larger list for a console 2 years old now. Let’s get in the way back machine to remember the SNES… It was must have right off the batt! Super Mario world is legendary! A link to the past.. Up there in the greatest games of all time. I love Nintendo, but they’ve been sucking a bag of dicks for the most part. Exceptions: a lot of 3ds games and the wii had some solid games

    2. Super Mario 3D World – metacritic score: 93

      Infamous Second Son – metacritic score: 81

      Titanfall – metacritic score: 86

      What does the Wii U have to offer? Nothing but the BEST next gen game out there LOL!!!

          1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis


            It was always an overrated franchise but even lower than a Alpha Stage release Titanmess…


              1. I have never seen anyone as stupid and ignorant as you guys are. I am a HUGE nintendo fan and I’d go to hell and back for Nintendo, but are you seriously calling Infamous “rehashed” “dudebro shooters” and saying that it sucks because it got 81 average on metacritic (which is amazing). I wouldn’t have gotten a problem if you at least had some constructive criticism. Infamous isn’t either a shooter, nor a dudebro game. It is one of the most amazing games I have ever played (Didn’t play SS yet but I played the first 2. SS looks wayyy better than the first 2) I am 99% sure you never touched the games and if you did, then the fanboy inside you consumed your mind making you detest every game that’s not Nintendo. A good commander would see the errors in the ways of his country and accept the accomplishment made by the enemy.

    3. I’m just butthurt that they won’t let me have a rehashed Naruto game on the Wii U because Nintendo knows Naruto games are rehashed shit, but I refuse to accept it because I’m a narutard and did I mention that I loved sucking Sausgay’s dick?


  2. Nintendo………continue making indies come to you also.
    some like shin’en,(makers of amazing fast racing neo to come and others like art of balance and nano assault) will become much much bigger.

  3. I know for a fact that Scholastic is geting ready to port Vesper Hunt to the WIIU some time between the end of the year to mid summer 2015 . A mod confirmed it for me on The offical 39 clues website( which Vesper Hunt is based off of). The reason is they have to remake it from the PC and Kindle versions to the WIIU, also to put in the TV mode, the offline, and put in new missions and locations

        1. Don’t worry chief. He’ll be taken to the station for inspection and will be beaten with a Wii Remote.

    1. Tomas commander Kyle

      agreed but some of the xbots are also Vespers (the sworn emeny of the cahills and they are deadly) and the SQ . And they have become allys so they can take over the world. the Xbox is one of the ways of geting their money geting money for their plans

        1. Lucian commander Zack

          no the Vespers really want to end the world by finding trying to get some ring that can power the doomsday machine. Xbox and EA is their flow of cash

    1. Trools…… ohh the trolls! Get a life faggot! All i see you do is cry like a fucking bitch. Now hide in a corner and take iwata’s dick like the social reject you are. Your a joke and the only people that love you is your parents.

      1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

        At least his parents loves him unlike your life were nobody loves you and your cocaine stuffed parents abandoned you on the freeway…

      2. All I see you doing is hiding behind an anonymous post to not show your identity. Also you’re the one on a Nintendo fansite to attempt to make the fans feel bad about themselves; so you stop being a homophobic social reject and go back under the bridge where you belong.

      3. And we actually care about your gay opinion because? Yeah get a life and go find your parents who abandoned you when they saw what a freak you are

  4. 50 shovelware Baby U games lololol, that all that the underpowered baby toy excuse of a console is capable off. Baby game this, baby game that. Mario baby game this, Mario baby game that, Pokemon baby this, Yoshi baby that. Baby Donkey Kong this, babies will mention any other baby game that lolololol. Only babies still get excited for their rehash baby Mario games lololol. Babies said that when their baby Wonderful 101 would release the Baby U would sell like hotcakes, nope nothing. Babies said that when their baby Pikmin 3 would release the Baby U would take off, nope nothing. Babies said that when Baby Zelda Windwaker HD would release sales of the Baby U would increase, nope nothing. Babies said that when Mario 3D released the Baby U would sell like crazy, nope nothing. Babies said that when Donkey Kong Tropical baby Freeze would release the Baby U would sell more than diapers lololol. Only ones into the Baby U are the loyal niche babies that are still into those baby games, yet fail to BUY them lolololol. Let the shovelware indie game influx on the Baby U begin lolololol!!!

    1. Baby, baby, baby, oh, right!
      Oh wait, I hate that song.
      I don’t need to validate my manliness to you. I do what I want.

    2. You know the saddest thing ia you think you’re matute because you play “mature” games when in fact you’re one of the most childish people I’ve ever witnessed. You think you’re the epitomy of adult because you play games with guns, violence, sex etc. You’re a sad excuse for a human just like every one else with thag mindset. Games are called GAMES fir a reason, for fun. To take us out of this reality, yet you try to be cool while doing it. You’re a homo, just admit it. You are uoset with yourself so you try and put others down. And you are a cancer to gaming, its not all about specs either. It may be more underpowered than your precious “next gen” systems, but at the end of the generation I bet all Ninty exclusives metacritic scores will far outshine the suckbox and ps4. You can hold me to that

  5. So pretty much the only third party games coming to Wii U are cheap little low-budget titles available on everything else. Pathetic. Nintendo needs to take some of that cash they have stored up and start bribing developers and publishers to put games on Wii U exclusively. Worked for Microsoft with Titanfall.

          1. Bayonetta sold just over a million copies between two systems with install bases ten times that of the Wii U. Titanfall will sell a million copies in the month of March on Xbox One alone.

      1. Indie games should just be an added bonus when owning a console, not the only thing worth buying ESPECIALLY on a Nintendo console…

      1. Three games Woo Hoo! Meanwhile, X1 and PS4 get FF XV, AC Unity, KH3, Destiny, Batman Arkham Knight, the Division, and a host of other games. And the other systems get those games too.

  6. Hopefully they won’t be like Percy’s Predicament… It’s not a bad game, but it just seems like the developers JUST got out of college, if they’re not still in it…

    But sweet, loving the indie support.

  7. Indie Titles >>> AAA Titles, and by this been said, I can also add, Indie Titles = More Creative than AAA Titles.

  8. oh great more indie games that I either already have or don’t care about woo thats exactly what the Wii U needs, more ports

  9. Loved these news, it’s simply marvelous to see this support since indie developers don’t give the same, tiresome and shameful excuses from the big companies to not make something for Wii U.


  10. It’s great news for the Wii U. But I’ve never cared about indie games. They remind me too much of all that casual shovelware crap I’ve been buying for Wii. And what’s worse, they’re digital. I can’t get my grubby collector hands on them.

  11. WiiU is becoming indie games machine.. i don’t know whether it’s good or bad? i dont think indie games are going to sell consoles.. but it looks like there are no new triple-A games coming to WiiU at all. it seems like not only 3rd party but nintendo has also given up.


    1. You are rubbish. You don’t even have a legit mother because your prostitute mother dumped you in the trash, asshole. I got an idea. Why not stay away from your computer, go outside, and actually be valued in society?

  13. Ok everyone i got a really really big rumor or joke
    titanfall is possibly coming to the wii u(unlikely)
    it is to be announced next week and release with the xbox 360 version
    Why microsoft allow this sense nintendo isnt in competition with them
    The article below says that Nintendo spent a TON to get this on the wii u. It also says that this might mean nintendo trying to regain 3rd party support and renew there friendship with EA
    heres a link
    oh yeah one more thing it is being made by the team that is doing the xbox version
    My take on it: This is very unlikely BUT if it does happen this might lead Nintendo to grow friendships with third party developers and maybe get some exclusives from them that are QUAILITY

  14. WiiU is becoming indie games machine.. i don’t know whether it’s good or bad? i dont think indie games are going to sell consoles.. but it looks like there are no new triple-A games coming to WiiU at all. it seems like not only 3rd party but nintendo has also given up.
