According to a recent with Automoton, Epic Games Japan representative Takayuki Kawasaki said that there are currently 20 games built in Unreal Engine 4 being developed for the Switch.

In the interview, Kawasaki went on to say that there may be “even more” in development now and that progress on adding Switch support for the free version of Unreal Engine 4 is happening soon.

On Unreal Engine 4 support for Switch in general:

Hot on the heels of Nintendo’s announcement that the Switch is their fastest selling console of all time, research firm SuperData estimates that 2.4 million Switch consoles have been sold during the systems first month of release.

Obviously, this is a far larger number than the 906,000 units sold that was announced by the NPD Group yesterday. The research firm behind the 2.4 million estimate, SuperData, collaborated with market researcher Gfk and the Japanese gaming publication Famitsu to come to that figure. To be clear, this figure hasn’t been confirmed by Nintendo.

Additionally, SuperData changes its projected sales of the Switch for 2017. They now estimate that the Switch will sell 7.2 million consoles this year, up from 5 million. The Switch seems to be on the road to overtake the Wii U’s lifetime sales figure of 13.56 million very early, if SuperData’s estimated figures are correct.

After previously announcing that services for Dragon Quest X on Wii will be discontinued soon, Square Enix has now announced that owners of the Wii version of Dragon Quest X will have access to a free upgrade to the Switch version of the game.

When Dragon Quest X is upgraded to version 4.0  sometime this fall, services for the Wii version (not Wii U) of the title will be discontinued. While unfortunate news, Square Enix has stated that they’ll provide every registered Dragon Quest X player on Wii with a download code for the Switch version of the title.

Those who prefer a physical copy will still have to purchase the title themselves, but this undoubtedly will please some of the Dragon Quest X players who still played on the Wii version.

Square Enix said more details about the upgrade program will be provided in the future.
