Nintendo Embraces Indie Developers

“Nerdy News” is a mini-news show geared towards gamers, technosexuals, and all other geeky peeps.

In this one hundred and tenth episode of Nerdy News, I’ll be reporting on:

  • Yoichi Wada is stepping down from his position as Square Enix’s president.
  • At GDC Nintendo announced Miiverse as a smartphone and web-based app.
  • Nintendo then continued to bring in web and app developers to the Wii U.
  • And! They removed a rule that required all Nintendo developers have a physical office.

Here’s the new episode of Nerdy News!

What do you think?

Will restructuring Square Enix’s executives actually change the way the company is run? Will you use the Miiverse app to keep in touch with your friends? Do you think reaching out to Indie Developers is a good way for Nintendo to recoup their losses? Or does this move seem more focused on changing their image as a company ‘set in its ways’?
