Tekken 7 Has Been Leaked And Uses Unreal Engine 4, No Platforms Mentioned

Online gaming publication IGN has let the cat out of the bag and revealed that Tekken 7 is coming before the developer announced it. Tekken 7 runs on Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 and is in development for current generation consoles. Whether this means the Wii U remains to be seen, but we should hear some more about the game, tonight.

“With Unreal Engine 4, we can rapidly achieve the visual quality expected on next-gen platforms and go beyond it,” Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada is quoted as saying in the video. “Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to easily bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”

Here’s Zelda’s Temple Of Time Recreated Using The Stunning Unreal Engine 4

Michael Eurek has managed to recreate the legendary Temple of Time using the spectacular Unreal Engine 4. The project was suggested by a friend who asked if he could recreate a classic game using Unreal’s latest graphics engine. Eurek set about creating the Temple of Time. The footage is captured from Unreal Engine 4 and Eurek says other software used was, Maya, Z-brush, and Photoshop.

“Several months ago, it was suggested to me by a friend that a fun/challenging exercise would be to recreate an environment from an old game I like using modern techniques. I thought this was a great idea, so I have put together a recreation and personal adaptation of The Temple of Time from The Legend of Zelda.”

Unreal Engine 4 Now Supports PlayStation 4 And Xbox One, No Wii U

Epic Games have announced that the gorgeous Unreal Engine 4 now adds support for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Epic Games says that the new update also adds support for Linux and Valve’s SteamOS operating system. Wii U isn’t included in the latest bout of support, so games based on the engine will likely be skipping the system.

Mark Rein Says He’s Sorry If He Offended People With His Wii U Comments

wii_u_console_whiteWhen asked last week whether Unreal Engine 4 will work on Wii U, Epic Games co-founder Mark Rein laughed as he replied ‘no.’ Rein says that the reason he laughed was because the question ignored other current-gen consoles, like the aged Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. On Twitter today, Rein said he’s sorry if he offended people with his comments regarding Nintendo’s latest console. Are you offended by Rein’s comments? If so, do you forgive him?

Rein Says Developers Could Bring Unreal Engine 4 Games To Wii U, If They Wanted

black_wii_u

Epic Games president Mark Rein now says that developers could create a game using Unreal Engine 4 and bring the product to Wii U. Rein also stated that developers could also bring Unreal Engine 4 games to the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. The downside to doing this is they wouldn’t look as spectacular as they would on the next Xbox or the PlayStation 4.

“You heard the stupid gaffe yesterday about the Wii U,” he said. “If someone wants to take Unreal Engine 4 and ship a game on Wii U, they can! If they wanna ship an Unreal Engine 4 game on Xbox 360, they could make it happen.” While that game might not look as pretty as it would on a “true” next-gen console, the new engine is scalable to a variety of platforms, including mobile.”

Rein Attempts To Explains Why He Laughed At Unreal Engine 4 On Wii U (Laughs Again)

wii_u_console_and_controller

We found out earlier today that Epic Games next generation game engine, Unreal Engine 4, won’t run on Wii U. This could mean that future video games based on the engine will be excluded from the platform. Epic Games president Mark Rein simply laughed at the idea of the engine running on Wii U at GDC. IGN asked him why he thought it was funny that someone should ask if the game engine can run on Wii U. Here’s his response.

Still laughing, “I just laugh at the question…Unreal Engine 4, we’re not PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or Wii U. It’s next-gen technology. That’s what we’re aiming for.”

“The truth is, if a developer wanted to take an Unreal Engine game and put it on Wii U, they could. Unreal Engine 3 is kicking ass on Wii U. The best games on Wii U are made on our technology. What more do you want from us?”
