WiiWare devs need only register and have an office

WiiNintendo wanted to make it clear exactly how open a platform the upcoming WiiWare channel will be. The official press release announcing the channel’s launch might lead one to belive that it is aimed at established development companies wanting to test new ideas in a low-cost environment.

"Through WiiWare, Nintendo hopes to offer developers a virtual laboratory that serves as a breeding ground for new games, which encourages great ideas that creators always wanted to develop. The combination of low development barriers and unique game experiences found only on Wii should enable developers to try new ideas with lower risk in a quicker, more creative and affordable way."

Since that statement, however, Nintendo has clarified just how accessible WiiWare will be to any upstart developer who wants to get their product to gamers. According to the big N, a prospective WiiWare developer needs only to register with Nintendo and to have an office address. Simple, huh?

So which one of GamerNode’s readers is going to make the next big WiiWare game?
