A few days ago, there was a little less hope that Unreal Engine 4 would arrive on the Wii U. But that “little less hope” was based on my (probable) misinterpretation of a quote (as noted in the previous article). A new rumour has suggested that the engine will be arriving on the platform though, explaining that:
Nintendo tweaked the Wii U to make sure it can run UE4, which would explain the recent bump in specs and apparently Nintendo is still tweaking the hardware.
(That quote was from here.)
It’s all back-and-forth speculation, I know, but I have a good feeling about E3 2012. I think it’s going to be big, and the announcement of Unreal Engine 4 support for the Wii U would be a great addition to that.
