Tokyo based company Silicon Studio has recently acquired the real-time global illumination tool Enlighten from the original developer Geomerics, and have announced that this will be compatible with the Nintendo Switch.
For context, Enlighten portrays the way that light is bounced from, or absorbed by, materials in a scene. Previous details of the product on Geomerics website explains that “artists are able to light any scene with just a small number of light sources, all while bringing unrivalled subtlety and harmony to the application’s graphic.”
Here’s further detail from Silicon Studio:
