This has now again been reiterated by Takayuki Kawasaki, Territory Manager for Epic Games Japan. Speaking to the Japanese website Social VR Info; Kawasaki confirmed that Nintendo Switch indeed supports Unreal Engine 4.

He continued that there are in fact a lot of games being developed for Nintendo Switch using the Unreal Engine technology. Kawasaki also believes that with the arrival of Nintendo’s hybrid-console, Japan’s console market will pick up more steam.

Unreal Engine 4 recently received v.4.14 which has a file under master branch that shows names for Switch, SwitchConsole, and SwitchHandheld. The developer who discovered the file has said that the ‘SwitchConsole’ settings are a notch lower as compared to UE4 defaults used on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.

The developer further stated that the said settings ‘serve as a good starting point to get a PS4/XB1 UE4 game to run acceptably on the Switch.’ To read up more and see all the settings for yourself, head over to the post!

Nintendo Switch is scheduled to release in March 2017.
