Live2D

Development tools for the Switch are ever expanding. The latest addition is Live2D – put simply, it allows developers to animate a character exactly the way they are drawn in 2D artwork without the need to create a 3D model and without having to draw every single frame of the animation. Nintendo is no stranger to this technology, as it has been used in Fire Emblem Fates, for example.

Today, Live2D Inc. released the Live2D Cubism software development kit for Switch, which allows game developers to integrate 2D assets made with Live2D Cubism 3 into Switch games that are being developed with the Unity engine.
