Nintendo is well-known for its high quality first party titles but without the help of ‘Nindies’, the eShop probably wouldn’t be as vibrant as it is today. Engadget recently spoke to a Nintendo rep who reiterated that they know the importance of independent developers saying:
“Nintendo greatly values its collaborations with indie developers across the world, and is working closely with them on a wide range of content,” the representative says. “We look forward to discussing more as we approach GDC 2017.”
Nintendo have over the recent years tended to embrace smaller studios and often hold annual events to show just that. With the Nintendo Switch launch just a few weeks away, it’s good to see that their goals are still set on providing a good amount of games to play on their new system. Let’s just hope that quality prevails over quantity.
