Nintendo to allow Homebrew Game Development

CVG has posted an article with some exciting news about Wii Homebrew Game Development. It sounds like Nintendo might allow independent game creators to work on Wii games after all...

"Nintendo has developed a programming system that will allow small independent developers to make games for Wii download service."

"We cannot confirm at this time in what format the new content will be delivered, but in the future there will be original games available for download through the Wii Shop."

For those of you who don't know, Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata, spoke of such a development tool at various games events last year, allowing low-cost game production for Wii. Anyone who got hooked on Geometry Wars on 360 knows how exciting this prospect is.

It's currently unknown when the proposed original game content will be made available to download, although it is unlikely that they'll be delivered through the Virtual Console.

This isn't for homebrew, but actual developers. To further prove this fact, you still have to get ESRB certified which costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. Which no homebrewer can afford
