Nintendo of America Launches eShop Indie Games Site

Howdy folks! So if you haven’t already seen on Twitter, Facebook, or the many other electronic means of spreading the news – Nintendo has launched a new site (http://www.nintendo.com/eshop/indie) dedicated solely to those Indie devs we admire and appreciate so much.  You can see from the screen cap above a carousel that allows you to cycle through just a limited selection of the current and upcoming indie games for the 3DS and Wii U.  You can click the Learn More button and be brought directly to their game page on the nintendo.com site.

If you ask me, I think it’s a great way to bring attention to indies and allow us gamers to focus solely on the indie offerings.  It is my hope that this site will add more and rotate through indie games and eventually increase exposure for all the indie devs out there.

Comment below and tell us what you think of the new site!

About the author:

Jeremy’s love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80’s when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he’ll answer, “the day I beat Zelda 2.” To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers.

Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
