Nindies Unite!: Nintendo eShop All-Stars is a crossover party game published by Nintendo for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS systems. It stars Nintendo characters as well as characters from independently developed (often called "indie") video games made famous on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS (dubbed "Nindies" for that reason). These games include Shovel Knight, Mutant Mudds, SteamWorld Dig, and more. Some WiiWare and DSiWare games are also featured including the Shantae series and the Bit.Trip series.
The game plays similar to Mario Party, Wii Party, and Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, as it features many party games. The main mode, Party Mode, features a board game, among others, while additional modes include Minigame Mode, and a Story Mode.
As players progress, they can earn currency that is used to unlock new content such as videos, character bios, and game modes in the Shop found in Extra mode. The WIi U and Nintendo 3DS versions can also connect with one another so players can use the 3DS system as a controller in the Wii U version.
Note: All characters are playble in the Wii U version.
