Soon to feature Unreal 4!

Nintendo's announcement of the all-new Nintendo Switch has taken the gaming industry by storm, at last bringing months of rumours and confusion to an end. The Switch represents a bold new step for Nintendo, but it certainly seems like developers are confident in this new vision. Of course, one of the big questions on the minds of many is whether or not the console will be receiving all the major AAA games that are so prevalent on the PS4 and Xbox One. While only time will tell, we at least know that Switch will have support for a major engine.

The official Twitter account for Unreal Engine revealed earlier today that Unreal Engine 4 will be supported on the Nintendo Switch. This will no doubt come as a relief to many; though it doesn't guarantee that developers will bring their games to the platform, it nevertheless is removing a significant barrier to developing for it. Hopefully the excitement around the Switch will continue long after launch and developers will continue to see the benefits to porting their games to it.
