That’s a pretty bold move by Nintendo! Though, one wonders if they’re doing it because they’ve released so many shovelware games in the recent years and are just looking for better blood with indie devs.

Nintendo is looking set to remove the office space restrictions set upon independent developers who wish to develop games for Nintendo platforms. One of the biggest problems for independent developers wishing to develop for Nintendo platforms is that they need to have a dedicated business place, such as a rented office, in order to receive a Nintendo development kit. With this hurdle out-of-the-way, presumably we will see a number of new eShop titles announced in the future.
