Two months ago at the Games Developers Conference, Nintendo announced the Nintendo Web Framework for the Wii U, supporting application development on the console through the use of HTML5, JavaScript and CSS. Alongside this announcement also came news that the Wii U will support Unity, an integrated development environment with a sole focus on games, used by over 1.2 million developers worldwide.

The good news for Nintendo and its huge fan base is that indie developers have jumped at the chance to develop software for the console, with Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata stating.

“We have received great feedback. We have been in contact with more than a thousand parties.
Even though software for dedicated gaming devices has become advanced and complex, we have been working on those new approaches to expand the range of developers for the platform. As digital business expands, there will be even more opportunities for us to do business with small, independent software developers.”

As more indie developers get involved, the more innovative ideas and concepts will be brought to the table, with hopefully not too long of a wait before they start appearing on the Wii U’s eShop.
