18 New High-Profile Indie Titles Arriving on Nintendo Platforms

Just how indie friendly are Nintendo's platforms? We think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Nintendo is actively reaching out to indie game developers and offering them a home on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. At this year’s IndieCade, the annual international festival of independent games in Los Angeles, Nintendo will be highlighting a wealth of indie games in its booth, as well as hosting a panel on how independent game developers can bring their creations to the Nintendo eShop. (1001 Spikes, 3DS, Armillo, Forced, Knytt Underground, Pier Solar and the Great Architects, Q.U.B.E., Scram Kitty and His Buddy on Rails, Shovel Knight, Treasurenauts, Wii U)

Nintendo is going out of their way to provide indie games to their platform.

It's a shame that this goes unnoticed from the folks here as they fight about Indie's on PS4 or Xbox One.

It's due to the gaming public not knowing they exist. There's a reason why Sony announced indies on stage at E3 and Gamescom, because potential customers were paying attention to those conferences. Exposure is important for a game to get an audience and the Wii U is suffering from a lack of exposure. It's great to see support from Nintendo's part, but it will only succeed if gamers buy them.

I'm also curious as to what constitutes a high profile indie title. From that list, there were only a few games that I would consider high profile indies. Shovel Knight, Retro City Rampage, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, 1001 Spikes, and Q.U.B.E. are the the games I would consider. Again, good to see Nintendo indie support going strong.

don't forget there's a slew of titles on Kickstarter right now - Mighty No. 9, a new Shantae game, The Fall, and some others all with Wii U support as well. Indies do seem to love the Wii U, so that's great news for Wii U owners at least.

and the gaming community ignore Nintendo effort with indie.
