Snake Pass launched as the first Switch game to run on the Unreal Engine, but it seems there are lots more coming. According to Epic Games’ Japanese representative, there are about twenty Unreal Switch games being developed at the moment in Japan. This is certainly good news for Nintendo, any third party games helping bolster the Switch’s library. Check out his quote below.
“Unfortunately, there were not any Unreal Engine titles at launch, but in late March, Snake Pass, which was one of the titles playable at GDC, launched in America and Europe, and at the Nintendo Switch Presentation, there were titles such as Shin Megami Tensei. In Japan, there are about 20 titles being developed that use Unreal Engine, so I think that they’ll be announced gradually from here on”
