In the announcement from Marvelous expanding upon what its new partners mean, the company highlighted Xbox and Unity’s commitment to “revitalize the indie market and foster creators.” The company highlighted how Xbox seemed to be a natural fit for the initiative given its success with Xbox Game Pass, perhaps leading to more partnerships between the service and indie games.

As for Unity Technologies Japan, Marvelous will pursue further activities with the platform as it plans to work with the nationwide game development contest in Japan. The competition extends to elementary, junior high school, high school, and college students. In a Famitsu interview (translated on ResetEra), Marvelous noted that while plenty of these programs exist in Europe and the US, this is the first initiative of its kind in Japan. Business producer Mike Haruki Yamazaki leads investing initiatives for indie games at Marvelous, and noticed the talent coming out of other incubation programs in Spain. He then sought the talent of other professionals familiar with the indie scene.
