Just before the Nintendo Switch launched, Epic Games announced that the 4.15 version of its well-regarded Unreal Engine would experimentally support the system. Since then we’ve gotten a couple of Unreal Engine 4 developed games, such as Snake Pass, as well as announced plans for plenty more.

As of today, with update 4.16, the Nintendo Switch is fully supported by Unreal Engine natively. Not only that but Epic Games has teamed with Nintendo to offer the Unreal Engine 4 source code to any approved Switch developer for free.

A Nintendo Switch-exclusive discussion board has also been opened up on the site, which should prove a valuable resource for more independent developers.

We’re sure to see some exciting games come out of this development! We’ll be sure to keep you informed as they’re announced.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
