Reggie affirms Nintendo's indie love

Nintendo is working hard on building an infrastructure to support independent developers on its 3DS and Wii U platforms, says Reggie Fils-Aime.

Speaking to IGN, the Nintendo of America president said the firm, which in the past has been criticised for its indie support and lack of online focus, is spending more time than ever on learning how to support developers.

“The independent developer, especially those developers who have experience, who’ve shown real capabilities, we love those independent developers,” said Fils-Aime. “And what we’re doing is creating even more of an infrastructure for a brand-new independent developer, someone who’s never created content before, to be effective on our platform.
 
"So it’s an area that we’re spending a lot more time and a lot more energy to create the infrastructure to help these developers publish their content and be effective. It’s something that we have had to learn how to do. Because our systems aren’t straightforward for a developer who hasn’t had a lot of experience.”
