Nintendo and the digital media university DigiPen, launched today the DigiPen Game Studios, in conjunction with Media Development Authority. This new work group will be looking for and publishing titles made in Singapore.
DigiPen Game Studios will be scouting potential game projects to support during a conference that will be held later in the year. Chosen proposals will be developed and eventually distributed for sale on the 3DS eShop, though other gaming systems could eventually follow suit. DigiPen International chief operating officer Jason Chu has said that the company hopes to select ten games made in Singapore by next year.
Any developers that are chosen for this new initiative will be receiving mentorship and assistance from DigiPen, while Nintendo will later fully market the different games.
