A recent rumour has popped up on Reddit regarding the highly anticipated Pokemon game for the Nintendo Switch. A job posting published on Creatures Inc website shows a screenshot of Pokemon created using the magnificent Unreal Engine 4. A lot of Japanese developers are using Unreal Engine 4 for their games, so it would make sense for the Pokemon Company to do the same.
“Screenshot shows Unreal Engine 4 (and something that looks like a visual shader editor, I’m not really familiar with UE) and a high-poly Pikachu 3D model on the left.
The Job posting site: https://www.creatures.co.jp/recruit/1261/
They mention Maya (3D modeling program by Autodesk), Unity and UE. However, the image and the fact that other 1st party games are made with Unreal (Yoshi) suggest that Pokemon might use it as well.”
