Nintendo Switch Now Fully Compatible With Unreal Engine 4

Nintendo Switch Now Fully Compatible With Unreal Engine 4

Physically-realistic bloom post-process effects can now be created with the new image-based (FFT) convolution feature Epic developed during the making of "The Human Race" collaboration with Chevrolet. This new release, UE 4.16, replaces version 4.15, which had experimental support for Switch development.

One of Nintendo's big challenges last generation was drumming up third-party developer support.

Now, UE 4 developers will be able to bring their games to even more platforms, as the latest release of the engine fully supports Nintendo Switch. This time around, the company is taking greater steps to ensure that doesn't happen, with Nintendo this week teaming up with Epic Games to offer a "fully-featured" version of the Unreal Engine for free to approved developers working on games for the Switch.

Additionally, interfaces and workflows for VR Mode (formerly known as VR Editor), Animation, Sequencer cinematics and other tools have been updated to make developing in Unreal more streamlined.

But the icing on the cake takes the form of Switch support, with Unreal partnering up with Nintendo to release the full UE4 source code for Nintendo Switch to approved developers for free.

A full list of changes, many with demonstrative videos, can be found in the official announcement.
