Whether it is fair or unfair, Nintendo has gained a reputation over the years for not cooperating with independent developers and small studios. With all of the harsh criticism that WiiWare received over the years, people tend to forget that it was Nintendo’s first time ever doing a mainstream digital distribution service. No wait, scratch that. The Wii/DS era was the first time ever that they significantly pushed online, period. It was obvious that some mistakes would be made along the way, and based on past announcements since E3 2012, I think Nintendo has proven that they are taking digital distribution very seriously.
