Though one time a rare thing, now all major consoles have strong indie gaming presences. In fact, one might argue that those presences are just as important as the AAA titles, as they help not only bring in more gamers to the platformer, but also provide the major companies a chance to possibly use the indie teams for bigger games in the future.
During the Unite 2015 Tokyo Event, it was revealed that Nintendo is taking the next step into bringing indie developers to their platforms by announcing that the New Nintendo 3DS would be getting Unity support (via Twitter).
This is a huge development for Nintendo and its handheld, which already had some big indie titles, but with the addition of Unity, this will no doubt open the door to more indie games coming in the future.
The Wii U has already taken full advantage of Unity support, during a recent interview Nintendo of America executive Damon Baker said that over 50 games for the Wii U were using Unity.
Nintendo has been working hard in the last few years to bring more independent developers to their platforms, even earning the fun title of “Nindie” games for those that did. Truly, this will be the start of a new age of indie games for the company.
