While third Party companies are still shunning the Wii U, Nintendo's attitude for providing Indie Developers with the tools required for making games for consoles is causing Indie Developers to flock over to Nintendo's side.

For those of you who don't know, Nintendo has been jumping through hoops in order to give Indie Devs a chance to develop for the Wii U. This includes providing Unity Pro to qualifying developers, lowering prices for the Dev Kits, and expanding the infrastructure to allow Flash-style games. The Wii U Gamepad also allows many mobile developers to easily add touch-screen integration to their console port.

Well, Nintendo Enthusiast has recently compiled a list of all the Indie Games that are currently planned/coming out for the Wii U. Here is a list of some of the games on this list:
