Interviewed by the website Social VR info, Takayuki Kawasaki (President of Epic Games Japan) revealed that many games based on Unreal Engine 4 will arrive on the new console of Nintendo. The platform fully supports the engine and it seems that many are in the team working on projects specifically designed for Switch.


With less than two weeks for the official presentation of Nintendo Switch, more and more details are emerging about this hybrid platform from people like Tatsumi Kimishima. After confirming months ago that Switch would be compatible with Unreal Engine 4 from the start, little by little we have been seeing the first titles of this compatibility, like the promising and exclusive Seasons of Heaven, but there is much more on the way.

Although the direct port from the other consoles could be difficult to achieve because of a hardware component that currently appears less powerful than it would be expected, Nintendo Switch will support the Unreal Engine 4 as the President of Epic Games Japan, Takayuki Kawasaki, has ensured that many titles driven by the powerful graphics engine will arrive on the new console of the Big N.

Kawasaki was very vague but actually during the interview he said he was confident about the arrival of many Triple A titles based on the Unreal Engine 4 for Switch. The first title driven by the Epic engine to arrive on Switch will be in all probability Dragon Quest XI but there are still many productions to be announced, at least according to the words of the CEO of Epic Japan, who hopes that Switch manages to breathe new life into the Japanese hardware market.
