Suda51: “Nintendo Has Really Started Caring More About Indies”

Renowned developer Suda51 has recently spoken to Game Informer about development on the Nintendo Switch. He’s pleased that Nintendo has reached out to indies and built a platform that is super friendly to independent developers. He says it’s obvious to him that Nintendo has really started caring about the indie game scene.

“Over the past two years, I’ve seen how much Nintendo has been putting into getting the word out about indies and trying to help the indie community get more popular and get more support,” says Goichi Suda, CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture and director of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. “It’s really obvious to me that Nintendo has really started caring more about indies.”


Thanks to Nintendo First Order Reaver for the news tip!

      1. Hello Commander, a virgin is a female human that has never had sex which is the way humans reproduce. Samus was bring to existence this way.

      2. Dude drop the facade, you are NOT I Repeat NOT this Quadraxis from Metriod! We get it you like the fucking game but micheal’s right you’re giving Nintendo fans a bad name. I don’t know if you’re doing this to get off or your on the Autistic Spectrum as it would appear that way as no matter how much you piss people off you keep fucking doing it so going by that logic you must either be autistic or get a rouse over thinking you’re something you’re not.

          ||Michael Ponder Jr, your life must be empty if you are this desperate, but what to expect from a human other than pure irrelevancy as usual…||

          1. dude I know you like your persona but come on no matter how much you want to be you will never be a bunch of ones and zeroes, I know alot of fans dream of being in the game they like playing but then again who doesn’t. and i’m not Micheal Ponder Jr i’m simply agreeing with only some of what he said. now i may not have been on this site for very long but i think from what i’ve been reading you do take your rp a little too seriously. Try and calm down a little if you really want to play a role like that why don’t you try developing an indie game then nobody can say “here we go again mr RP spewing his rp superiority Complex bullshit” I know you don’t really want that do you? I mean I rp on D&D on a Thursday as a dungeon master and i’ve been doing that for 8 years but you do have to understand people have the right to play what they like be it xbox, playstation or pc. you may not like others opinions but this is the internet where opinions are not just to one select fanbase as you hope it would be, plus if everybody liked the same thing it would be one boring place to live. Like the saying goes it takes all sorts to make a world. I’m sure you’re not a bad person at all.

              1. Excuse me but i’m no bodies slave please stop acting so high and mighty , your not the “overlord of the internet” you’re a regular guy that likes roleplay that actually prefers to look down on people that think that your way isn’t the best way. You need to understand it’s not just your opinion that counts.

              2. so kindly stop labeling me like something you scrap of your shoe. I’m a pretty reasonable person so i kindly ask you act like an adult not a child.

                  1. I’m trying to be neutral on this but it appears to me now that you only think so highly of yourself and think Fuck everyone else because i’m a fictitious boss that isn’t even real i might add that was actually killed so why be something that actually died? I thought i coul actually talk to you like a normal person instead of making you feel bad, but it would seem that is beyond your capability isn’t it unless you can prove me and everybody else wrong that you are a reasonable person and not a stuck up douche.

                  2. and i think you mean to say begone from my sight or be destroyed if you want to be a Villan you need to read up on your evil monologues and speeches and get a bit better. And don’t always assume everyone on here is a child.

                      1. You’re not going to listen are you? I have dealt with people that are just like you, so im just going to ignore you if you don’t accept somebody who is legitimately trying to be a friend to you. give me a message when you’ve decided to talk more sense, I’ll be waiting.

                          1. i play board games not the xbox nintendo or sony. i’m solely board games only I was actually sent here by a friend who left after saying some rather hurtful and offensive things about you. so you can’t label me with a gamer title/faction as you lie to use. i’m just a board game and comic nerd that tries to help others or those that are subjected to bullying.

                          2. to be perfectly honest i have never played a videogame in my life and in 32 and still never picked up a controller.

                              1. Unless you count a vhs game which with a man called the gatekeeper that was a good game. I have been interested in trying a game but i have a lot of work i need to do i only use my pc to relax and read up on current events like politics and situation with poverty and things like that. I tend to spend my free time helping people instead of playing games.

                            2. i mean when i first saw the post by micheal ponder jr i actually felt sorry for you. don’t make me regret my kindness to try and console you

                    1. Would you mind if i asked you as to why you chose to push people away? Do you have a certain reason or you was ridiculed for how you saw things?

                    2. If so i can relate people made fun of me for never touching a videogames console, like people ridicule you for your roleplay persona.

                  1. Thanks for pointing that out. I suffer from a rare disorder that sometimes makes me think my body has been possessed by the ghost of Iwata. Nintendo keeps asking me to stay off their conference calls but you tell me why I can suddenly speak Japanese and always know the codes to get on those calls in the first place!

                    Anyways, it also seems to make me forget that this is the comment section of a fansite and not the internal discussion boards over at Nintendo. So again, thank you for setting me straight. Super helpful. I’m sure Nintendo will introduce a ton of Indie characters into Smash. Definitely their next move.

            1. i’d love shantae in smash drop pikachu and the extra poke reps and a few mario and ad some indies not freddy fazbear though or sans those games suck

              1. Why would they drop all the Pokemon and a portion of the Mario games in favor of third party indie games played by a relative small percentage of their fanbase, when compared to the literal top two selling game franchises of all time?. Yes we’ve had some guest characters and some of those made more sense than others (Mega Man and Pac Man versus the likes of Snake, Ryu, Bayonetta), but the idea of reducing their two best selling franchises in favor of a couple relatively unknown (but good!) indie games is absurd.

                And you pointed out the exact problem with picking which indies to use. You don’t like some popular indies, I don’t like some popular indies, how on earth would they pick appropriate characters that the majority would both recognize and enjoy? I promise that all my in-laws who love Nintendo wouldn’t know or care about Shovel Knight, but they would love to see more Mario characters like Waluigi, Boo, etc. And their a pretty good representation of the non-hardcore but super Nintendo loving fanbase.

                1. i think shovel knight would of been fun aswell as yooka and laylee i just feel they had too many pokemon fighters is all.
