These games, along with titles from Nintendo's third-party publishing partners, will help drive hardware momentum and introduce new audiences to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS platforms."This strategy also includes an absolute flood of indie games set to hit the system this summer and continuing well into the console's future.
