240 Upcoming Wii U Indie Games (updated with 100+ new titles)

NE:

Back in February, we put together a massive feature detailing over 120 upcoming indie games for Nintendo’s Wii U platform. Today we have updated that list to double that number – 240 titles. The flood of Indie content to the Wii U is rapidly approaching.

In our original article we mentioned Nintendo’s HTML5 Web Framework and their support of the Unity game engine as key elements that leant themselves to the massive number of indie titles heading to the system. Today we also count Impact JS and Construct 2 to the growing library of game engines that support indie efforts on the Wii U.

For a deeper look at the business behind this indie revolution we suggest you read the original article by Nintendo Enthusiast founder Menashe.

So, without further ado, check out our thirteen lists of 240 Upcoming Wii U Indie Games. (Wii U)

But Wii U has no games xD
randomass171  +   124d ago
Oh of course. The dozens upon dozens of games the Wii U has gotten since launch or completely nonexistent. NO games whatsoever! *coughMarioKartandindiescough*

I don't count indies. I can get those on my iPhone. I respect people who like them though, so good for them that they get this many.
Metallox  +   124d ago
Why do many people call indies "phone" games? Because many of them aren't that and their 7.99-14.99 prices are justified.

many of those indie games are much better than some great AAA titles...

Trine 1 & 2, Journey, Outland, Bit.trip games and many more

This scares me actually. A lot of fluff or is there any meat on these bones? If a mass majority of these are garbage, I fear it will not help the Wii U positively. Maybe short lived boost, but in the end this could walk the same path the Wii did in the end.

The WiiU needs more meaty big seller titles. There are some great games coming soon, but past those few titles, as for now, it's a mass of possibly forgettable fluff.

I think the Wii U needs more and BETTER marketing rather than more games, I mean, yeah, it needs a lot of games but for now a good marketing would be better for the console, I think it wouldn't be selling like it's doing right now and at least it would have a better reputation. Like many people say, there are still persons that think the Wii U Gamepad it's an add-on for the Wii. That's not good.

So yeah, it needs games but it has already got a bunch of very good games as well.
randomass171  +   124d ago
^This. Better marketing would be a huge plus. Nintendo is just not advertising Wii U properly.

I give Nintendo credit for at least trying. I look forward to seeing more indies games for the Wii u. keep up the good work Nintendo.
randomass171  +   124d ago
They've clearly setup a solid framework for indies to build upon. Right now they need to encouragement as much Wii U development as possible while releasing more first party stuff for the system. And market the dang thing better.
jhoward585  +   124d ago
Yes, Nintendo has certainly done a great job setting up a solid framework for indies.
Oh,Since Nintendo has finally opened up their door to any dev(including indies) who's want to make game using ther AAA franchise was smart. So, I guess we expect a jaw dropping 2-d metroid game developed by one of those indies. As for 1st party games I'm sure Nintendo have some in the works. They'd be crazy to show up at E3 with a bunch of indies game and very little 1st party games. I can't wait for E3 to come because I have faith that Nintendo will do their best to turn things around.

Nintendo is basically trying to make Indie Devs their next big third parties.
aragon  +   124d ago
Nice
antikbaka  +   124d ago
If I needed indie games I wouldn't have bought WiiU for it, 'cause you can play them anythere else and usually for cheaper price.
LightDiego  +   124d ago
Indie games? No, thanks.
diepdiep  +   124d ago
Then you're gonna miss out big time.
X1PS4WiiU  +   124d ago
The Wii U has too many games!

The best part about indie developers, is, they have the freedom to create what they want. Unlike these risky AAA 3rd party games that cant take many chances, and sell you the typical violence, sex, guns, ect..
