New Job Listing Suggests Pokemon Switch Could Be Developed Using Unreal Engine

Creatures, Inc. (the owners of 1/3 of the Pokemon copyright) has a new job listing with a photo of Pikachu being created using the Unreal Engine.

All of the screens on the monitor shows Unreal Engine 4, separated into 2 tabs/windows. The one on the left shows the Viewport, depicting a Pikachu model in front of a first person camera. The one on the right shows the UE4 Materials Blueprint.

This Material is showing the Pikachu’s skin, with a variety of lightings applied.

This listing and photo don’t necessarily mean Pokemon Switch is being developed using Unreal Engine, but it is an interesting concept.

More as the story develops…
