It’s amazing how a situation can turn around in the span of a generation. Whereas developers were constantly down on Nintendo’s handling of WiiWare, praise couldn’t be higher when it comes to the eShop.
Capybara Games’ Nathan Vella is the latest to speak positively about Nintendo’s approach to indies. Vella told VG247 that the company is ” making a big move to try and get smaller, unique, independent games on Wii U downloadable.” Vella also spoke highly of Dan Edelman who is essentially in charge of all things downloadable at Nintendo of America.
“I’ve seen personally, first-hand, Nintendo making a big move to try and get smaller, unique, independent games on Wii U downloadable. They have a really great team there; Dan Edelman who runs that division is one of the raddest dudes in video games, and I would say easily one of the most respected people by the independent community. Nintendo is reaching out and trying to do something. They’re playing catch up, obviously, and that’s a hard spot to be in when it comes to getting the new stuff, but they’re really putting in.”
