The Nintendo Switch might not be getting some of the big AAA titles from various publishers and developers but they are having no trouble securing indie titles on the system. As we all know, the Nintendo Switch has been a big success for indie developers and consumers seem more than happy to play great titles such as Hollow Knight on the platform. Nintendo has said that they are now looking to have around 20-30 indie titles release on the Nintendo Switch each week.
“We started working with indie developers during the Wii U generation. For Nintendo Switch, we set up a development environment that supports Unity middleware, which is used on smartphones and other platforms. We are also actively engaging with indie developers at video game-focused shows and other events in different regions. We also had a Nintendo booth at the BitSummit indie game event held in Kyoto, where we showcased some games. Some of the indie games already released have gone on to become million sellers worldwide. In the future, we are looking to release around 20 to 30 indie games on Nintendo Switch per week, and we definitely expect to see some great games among them.”
