Nintendo of America didn’t air it, but the European Nintendo Direct Conference this Morning showed off a wonderful montage of indie games that will be available on the Wii U console in the coming months.
Indie development is by far the most exciting field of play nowadays. Development through adversity, limited budgets, time restrictions, and a need to emotionally connect with an audience the way a AAA game might not be able to. Sounds like the development of a Super Nintendo game.
Nintendo and Sony have seen the importance of this new movement and are heavily pushing the idea through their consoles. Microsoft has finally caught on too in the recent weeks.
With the Wii U already out and with titles available right now, it would seem that Nintendo is currently leading the charge on the console scene. Any standouts in that montage look fun to you? Festival of Magic, Little Dew, Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails, Teslagrad and Wooden Sen’Sey all look up my alley.
Give the trailer a look and let us know what you think.
