Written by David Stellmack

Still possible to port UE4 game to Wii U

Mark Rein, Co-Founder of Epic, confirmed that despite the scalability of the Unreal Engine 4, the hardware in the Wii U is close to as powerful, if not a little more powerful, than what is in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. In an interview with Videogamer, he confirmed that Epic does not intend to bring the Unreal Engine 4 to the Wii U.

 

Despite the fact that the Unreal Engine 4 isn’t on the Wii U, it would not stop developers from porting UE4-developed titles to the Wii U using the Unreal Engine 3.
