In recent times Nintendo has been extremely supportive of independent developers. We’ve had indie focused Nintendo Directs and the support of these games by the Kyoto-based company has really encouraged indie developers. Game Informer recently interviewed Tommy Refenes who said to the publication that Nintendo is pushing harder than Sony is for independent developers games to shine.
“It used to be Sony was the one that was pushing the indie devs so much. I think Nintendo is pushing harder than Sony is now. […] I think right now they’re just offering more exposure.”
