Wii U has over 50 Unity-developed titles incoming

17 new indies to arrive on Wii U in the next two months, says spokesperson

Some 17 Unity powered indie games will arrive on Wii U in the next two months, with a further 50 planned.

That's according to Damon Baker, Senior Manager of Marketing at Nintendo's of America's Licensing department, who told Siliconera at GDC that the platform will receive a surge in new indie releases in the coming months.


"Over the course of this show [at GDC], we have nine games on display," Baker said.

"We have 17 that are currently in the pipeline, that have been submitted. So they will all be out within the next two months.

"And then, we have another fifty that are waiting in the wings, that are coming; so we've got a lot of Unity content on the way."

Nintendo announced its deal with Unity in 2012, which added support for the development technology on the Wii U. The move made developing for the Wii U easy as the technology is commonly used by independent developers.

Baker also said Nintendo is considering bringing Unity compatibility to the 3DS.

"3DS is definitely an exciting platform for us, because we've got a huge install base, and we want to take advantage of that. We've got a lot of developers that want to take advantage of it. So, we're working towards that as well. But nothing to announce at this time."
