Nintendo has teamed up with well-respected digital media university DigiPen Singapore to launch DigiPen Game Studios (thanks Straits Times).
The new studio is also being supported by the Media Development Authority and will encourage third party developers to create and publish 3DS games. It’s possible that the studio will also expand to other videogame systems in the future – whether that’s just the Wii U or goes beyond Nintendo’s system hasn’t been said.
As part of this effort, DigiPen Singapore will be hosting its first DigiPen Game Conference to let local game developers in Singapore pitch their games to the studio. Those accepted (ideally about 10 games) will receive mentorship from DigiPen to develop their game idea for 3DS and, once finished, Nintendo will do the marketing as it’ll be released on their system.
