Nintendo Job Listing Implies Unreal Engine 4 Support For NX

Unreal Engine 4 support

The Nintendo NX may have Unreal Engine 4 support, if new job listings at Nintendo are implying what they appear to be implying. Nintendo is looking for a software engineer that is familiar with existing game engines. The only one of these that is specifically named is Unreal Engine 4.

Previously, there was no Unreal Engine 4 support on any Nintendo console, but now the fact that Nintendo is asking about it may be pointing towards the possibility that the Nintendo NX will support the engine. You can hardly blame them for it either; Unreal Engine 4 has often been used in video games that are both independently and professionally developed.

Whatever Nintendo may be intending to develop with Unreal Engine 4, the possibility of a Nintendo NX console with Unreal Engine 4 support may be a big boon to a lot of developers that may end up developing something for Nintendo’s upcoming console.

However, we should take the job listing with a grain of salt. Not only has the Nintendo NX not even been confirmed by Nintendo itself, there’s also no guarantee yet that the console will even have Unreal Engine 4 support.

Whatever games end up becoming available for the Nintendo NX when it comes out, hopefully the job listing was true and that Unreal Engine 4 support will indeed be a possibility for the Nintendo NX.

Considering that one of the first games for the NX will be The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it will likely set a benchmark for games graphics on the NX.

This is especially true considering the high-quality productions others have managed to make in Unreal Engine 4, creating everything from Bloodborne’s Hunter’s Dream, to a remake of Tomb Raider 2, to a model of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Either way we’ll have to wait until the Nintendo NX is officially announced before we know anything for sure.
