Today, Nintendo announced plans to sponsor a new exhibit at Seattle’s EMP Museum. EMP’s Indie Game Revolution Sponsored by Nintendo exhibit begins on November 8, “and aims to explore how the independent game developer community is pushing past conventional boundaries and expanding the definition and cultural impact of this fast-growing medium.”

Those who attend Indie Game Revolution will find playable versions of titles made by independent developers throughout the past year. Shovel Knight and The Swapper – both playable on Wii U – will be featured for the exhibit’s opening next month. Other titles from Nintendo will be included in the museum’s video game programming going forward.

David Wharton, Nintendo of America’s director of Network Business Marketing, commented on today’s news:

“Nintendo’s commitment to supporting games from independent developers has never been stronger. EMP Museum is not only a wonderful venue to showcase this content, but also to dig deeper into the ways creative designers with great ideas continue to deliver their games to the public.”

Patty Isacson Sabee, CEO + Director, EMP Museum, also stated:

“EMP is extremely pleased and excited by Nintendo’s sponsorship of our upcoming exhibition. Indie Game Revolution represents some of the most innovative and creative work in video games and we’re thrilled to see Nintendo’s continued support of the independent game development community.”
