Nintendo's commitment to indie developers will be the central theme of its presence at GDC Europe next week in Cologne, Germany.
The platform holder will host two sessions designed to show how indie game developers can create unique software experiences for Wii U.

In early August, Nintendo of America business development manager Dan Adelman stated that there would be "20 to 30" indie games coming to the Wii U eShop by the end of 2013.
Shortly after, Nintendo released a montage trailer showcasing 18 Wii U indie games currently in development at European and Australian studios.
