One of the biggest indie titles hitting the Wii U eShop in the future is Playtonic’s gorgeous 3D platformer Yooka-Laylee. The game seems like the perfect title for Nintendo to help promote as it fits in with Nintendo’s family friendly image. The Executive VP of Sales at Nintendo of America, Scott Moffitt, was asked whether the company would give the game additional support by The Examiner and Moffitt basically said never say never.
We’ve really been embracing the independent development community and there is a lot of really great indie content coming to our platform, more so than [before] on Wii or predecessor systems. Our eShop is stocked with great indie games, so we try to rotate them through and promote them from time to time with developer support.
We’ve show a much more open stance to indie developers, so never say never.
