Nintendo has joined forces with video games and digital media university DigiPen. This new partnership will allow independent games from Singapore to be published on Nintendo platfroms. The new studio is titled DigiPen Game Studios (DGS) and it will enable developers in Singapore to produce titles for the Nintendo 3DS and possibly other formats. NX? DigiPen Singapore will organise its own conference which will allow local developers to submit their ideas for video games. If chosen, the game will then be developed and published on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Select developers will be mentored in the program by Digipen and it is expected that around ten games will be developed by next year.
DGS will provide our aspiring game developers with new opportunities to realise their dreams of making great games.
