Over 50 Unity Titles Coming to the eShop

We know that Nintendo is relying on the eShop to bring a high volume of content to their console in the year ahead—they’ve been promising as much, and we’ve seen evidence of this from the many announcements various developers have made about their upcoming games.

Some of these games are being showcased at the GDC this week (Game Developers Conference 2014), and Damon Baker (Nintendo of America) has emphasized publicly the massive volume of titles headed to the system. The main focus at GDC has been a demonstration of the Nintendo Web Framework, highlighting titles that use the Unity development engine.

This Unity toolset has been a major content contributor in past, and will continue to do so in future. Wii U developers have a free development license on the system, which certainly contributes to the appeal of creating for this particular system.

In an interview with Siliconera, Baker noted the impressive numbers of Unity-based games that are presently undergoing Nintendo’s approval process, and which we will see on the system in the months ahead. There are already many projects confirmed for later releases, so there’s much to anticipate.

And, despite the inevitable delays from some titles (which we’ve all come to expect), there amount of download content that’s about to hit the system is a little overwhelming:

“Over the course of this show, we have nine games on display. We have 17 that are currently in the pipeline, that have been submitted. So they will all be out within the next two months.

And then, we have another fifty that are waiting in the wings, that are coming; so we’ve got a lot of Unity content on the way.”

If you’re a fan of the eShop (or for some reason, haven’t checked it out yet?!), now may be the time to top up those eShop funds, because there’s going to be more games than anyone could possibly have time to play heading down the pipeline very, very soon.

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
