Nintendo’s Damon Baker continues to sing the praises of independent developers on the Nintendo Switch eShop, saying that these “strong” indie titles have allowed the service to flourish.
Baker noted that last July, Nintendo knew of 150 third-party releases headed to the Nintendo Switch eShop. By the end of 2017, just a mere give months later, 320 titles had already been released.
“A lot of the fact that we’ve grown the digital business so significantly with this platform compared to others was on the back of the strong indie titles,” he said.
Looking forward to the rest of 2018, Baker said that Nintendo will be looking to expand its audience on Nintendo Switch, regardless of whether gamers want to enjoy M-rated content or “automation cardboard construction projects.”
