Independent game developers based in Japan cannot submit applications to develop for the Wii U console, according to a Nintendo form hosted on the 2013 Game Developers Conference website.
The form invites potential Wii U developers to complete a questionnaire for an opportunity to be contacted by Nintendo.
However, it states in both Japanese and English, "We are not accepting applications from developers located in Japan at this time."
In a statement issued to CVG, Nintendo clarified its stance on the matter, stating, "The policy in question is the decision of Nintendo's department responsible for licensing activities in each region, and the licensing department of Nintendo is currently not accepting subject applications from individuals in Japan."
Developers located outside of Japan are able to submit applications. No further details regarding Nintendo's future approach to Japanese independent game developers have been made available.
