Nintendo has never really gotten along with third-party developers, but it seems that the publisher is really trying this time around.
The firm has already stated that the Wii U will feature many games from third-party publishers, and recently reiterated its commitment to these developers.
"We think it very important to make several hits from the third-party software publishers within the first year from the release of the platform, while offering Nintendo software seamlessly," Nintendo's boss said recently. "In order to achieve this goal, we have shared information about the new hardware with the software publishers earlier than we did previously and built a cooperative structure, and we are developing several titles in collaboration with these publishers."
The Wii U will be out next year, and will feature a host of third-party titles at launch.
