Ryan Winslet at cinemablend.com has an interesting take on the relationship between Nintendo and the Indie Game development community. Let’s hope the good times roll on:
According to Nintendo, their dedication to making the Switch a home for indies will remain as strong in year two and beyond as it has over the past 12 months.
The Nintendo Switch had a killer first year, but that wasn’t solely due to big first party games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, or even major third party offerings like Bethesda’s ports of DOOM and Skyrim. While those games may have provided the console’s skeleton, indies were the connective tissue. That’s a relationship Nintendo hopes to keep growing in the years ahead.
