A step in the right direction?

The Nintendo Web Framework is due to be unveiled in a panel today entitled "Nintendo Wii U Application Development with HTML and JavaScript" at this week's Game Developer's Conference (GDC).

The panel focuses on developing games and applications for Wii U using HTML 5, Javascript and CSS through the Nintendo Web Framework. It supports Javascript extensions, as well as Wii Remotes and the Wii U GamePad.

Nintendo is hoping that this initiative will allow for much faster game and application development, which is likely to appeal to both small and large development studios alike.

Do you think this scheme will give indie developers a boost? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
