Nintendo to Help Japanese Developers Promote Their Games in the West

Yo-Kai Watch 2

During today’s Nintendo investors meeting, it was revealed that more and more third-party game developers are being motivated to create software for the Nintendo 3DS. These developers come from many different places, but a lot of games available on the handheld are available only in Japan making third-party support stronger there than in other regions such as North America or Europe.

Iwata has plans to fix this situation, as he’s revealed that the company has plans to help developers promote their games overseas. Here’s what he had to say:

In addition, in the domestic market, third-party software developers continue to be highly motivated to create software for Nintendo 3DS. As I said just a moment ago, some hit software titles from third parties have become double-million sellers, and there has been a constant stream of small-to-medium hit third-party software.

As you can see, many titles that have already been announced are set for release and I have heard about the development plans for many more titles that have not been announced and hence are not shown here. I also think that assisting Japanese software publishers that have had success in the domestic market to promote their games overseas will create new possibilities.

It was also announced that there are even more unannounced 3DS titles currently in the works, so this could be an amazing time for the company to execute its plan of action. Which games do you hope to see launched globally?
