Nintendo executives confident in a “steady flow” of Switches after shortages “here and there”

What kind of things are you doing to help woo third-parties onto Switch?

Koizumi I think a lot of it comes down to the development environment we’re providing because these are third-party providers that are bringing games to Nintendo hardware we want to do everything we can to make that experience comfortable for them including providing support for Unity or Unreal 4 which are platforms a lot of people are already using.

So one example I can give of this is SnipperClips which is made by a very small development team in England, which uses Unity so they were able to develop it very quickly.

So are you looking to have more independent developers on Switch?

Koizumi Yes, in fact we already have a lot of indie developers that we’re talking to, with several teams working on several different projects.
