Yesterday, Nintendo finally lifted the curtain on the company’s long-awaited new console with the Nintendo Switch, with one publisher confirming that its widely-used engine will be available to developers on the new platform.
Following an official confirmation of developers and publishers pledging to support the Nintendo Switch, Epic Games (who was previously confirmed as supporting the device) revealed that the company is “thrilled to partner with Nintendo to help Unreal Engine 4 developers bring their games” to the console.
Nintendo Switch is currently scheduled to release in March 2017, with the console already planning to be supported by numerous developers and studios, with more being confirmed since the console’s formal announcement.
