Nintendo is in a bit of a pickle. The Wii U isn’t selling at all, and the 3DS’ explosive momentum might slow down in 2014. One of the major problems affecting both consoles are their lack of third party support and that doesn’t look to change this year.
Despite not having the kind of third party support that Sony and Microsoft enjoy, Nintendo is getting plenty of indie support in 2014. In fact, Nintendo sent out a little notice today letting us know that both the Wii U and 3DS will see a large number of indie games this in the first half of the year.
On the Wii U front, there are currently 13 games scheduled for release on the platform between now and Q2. Some of the games, like Unepic and Knytt Underground, are already out while other games like Ballpoint Universe and Nihilumbra will be out in March.
As for the 3DS, the indie picks are little slimmer with only four games coming to the 3DS before May – Retro City Rampage DX, Siesta Fiesta, Moon Chronicles and Treasurenauts.
To give you a taste of some of these upcoming games, Nintendo shared a few trailers today:
