Now Epic Games has announced that it has partnered with Nintendo to help them develop games using Unreal Engine 4.

The announcement comes from Epic Games’ Twitter account, where Epic Games revealed that it would be partnering with Nintendo to help developers bring their games to Nintendo Switch in Unreal Engine 4. However, its not that surprising given that, Epic Games is already a part of third party publishers and developers list partnered with Nintendo.

There are still many details that are yet to be revealed by Nintendo about their upcoming console. However, since the reveal the fans are wondering that will the Nintendo Switch function similar to that of Wii U’s GamePad.

But Nintendo has clarified that their upcoming console is designed for a single display experience so it will not function like a Wii U’s GamePad.

Also Nintendo has detailed the backwards compatibility and battery life for Nintendo Switch. According to Nintendo, their upcoming console will not support the physical media of Wii U and 3DS, so it won’t support backwards compatibility, but there still a possibility that digital version might be.

Nintendo also revealed that the battery timing for Nintendo Switch is quite long, as the console was designed so that users could play games as long as possible, even at those places where users don’t have access to a power outlet.

Nintendo Switch will be available in March 2017, however, no specific date or price has been announced by Nintendo
