Over 1000 indie developers and studios have shown an interest in developing for Wii U, according to Dan Adelman, Nintendo's manager of business development.
During Game Developers Conference in March this year, Nintendo launched a new Wii U developer website where indies could register their interest in making games for Wii U.
In a new interview with Gamespot, Adelman said the response from developers has been "overwhelming".
"We've gotten probably over 1,000, I don't know if we've hit 2,000, developers with really wide-ranging levels of experience.
"We've got some who have recently left their jobs in mainstream publishers and are starting a new company, or have been indies for a while. All the way to high school students who are thinking of getting into game development and want to know more about it.
"So one of the challenges is going through and it's ultimately a resource allocation issue at that point. We want to support everybody, so how do we do that in the most effective manner and how do we prioritize in just making sure that... our intent is to support everyone, really.
"The underlying philosophy is that if you can make a game on our systems, we want to find a way for you to be able to do that."
In August, Adelman confirmed that 20-30 more indie games would be coming to Wii U by the end of 2013.
A recent Wii U indie montage video released by Nintendo showcased 18 upcoming indie titles in the works at Australian and European developers.
