Australian gamers have a new way to find and support indie developers from their home country, as the 3DS eShop Down Under — and throughout Europe as the "Developed in Australia" shelf — has been given a region-specific section listing all aussie-made games.

There are currently 14 titles available in the Australian section of the eShop, most of which are developed by Sydney-based Nnooo.

Speaking to MCV, Bruce Thompson, Business Director at Nnooo said:

It's great for us, the other Aussie devs and Australia to be recognised like this in the Nintendo eShop, not just in Australia but across Europe too.

Hopefully Nintendo will roll this concept out to various other nations, so gamers across the globe can seek out and support their local indie developers.
