Is Epic Games behind the Japanese garden tech demo?
We already know that Epic Games’s Unreal Engine 3 is running at least two of the Wii U’s games, Batman: Arkham City and Aliens: Colonial Marines. However, it seems that the studio’s support for the system may extend beyond simply porting their famous engine over to it…
You may remember when Mark Rein stated he didn’t think he could get Unreal Engine 3 running on the 3DS, but also said that ”the second Nintendo releases a piece of hardware that can run our engine well, we’ll be on it like water on fish.” And curiously, in a recent tweet, he said “Water, meet fish!”
Nothing’s confirmed, of course, but it’s possible he may have been hinting that his studio might’ve been behind the stunning Japanese Garden demo, which features lots of water and fish. Separately, Mark has also said that their supporting the Wii U with games of their own “isn’t an illogical conclusion to make.”
In any case, I’m happy to at least see the engine running smoothly on the system. Hopefully, that’ll help to quell some of the rampant HD twins fanboy rage.
