NINTENDOEven more Nintendo Switch games ports from the PS4 and Xbox One could be announcedFans could be in for a big Nintendo Switch games windfall in 2018, following the news of more PS4 and Xbox One support being lined up for the portable device.
While the new console boasts a lot of top first-party titles, fans would probably also like to see a few other games featured on other consoles arriving too.
And this latest announcement could mean just that.
Zelda Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are always going to be top choices when it comes to filling out your games library, with even more first-party support in development.
This will come in the form of a new Pokemon RPG for the Switch, as well as Metroid Prime 4 and several Wii U games ports already confirmed for release.
But what might surprise fans is that more Sony support for the console - already available on the PS4 and Xbox One - is coming to the Switch.
This won’t come in the form of new Sony exclusives for the Switch, but it might make it easier to port new titles to it in the future.
That’s because Sony’s free-to-use engine, PhyreEngine, looks to be being made compatible to use on the Nintendo Switch.
Big new PS4 and Xbox One releases could be coming to the Nintendo Switch“Used in over 200+ titles across a number of different of platforms, PhyreEngine has been successfully adopted by dozens of game studios around the world,” the official site explains.
“The entire engine is provided as source making it easily customisable to meet your needs. It’s completely free to registered developers and licensed for usage on any platform.”
Support for the Switch has not been officially announced yet, however, fans have spotted new evidence to suggest it’s coming.
References to it being used for the new Dragon Quest Builder’s demo have been found on the Switch’s eShop page.
And if this is true, it could mean that many other titles could be ported much more easily to the Switch in the future.
PhyreEngine has been around for a while and is currently used to support games on Microsoft’s Xbox One, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see it expanded to the Switch.
The site doesn’t list the new Nintendo games console as among those compatible device, listing these instead:
“Support for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Windows (OpenGL and DirectX 11), Google Android and Apple iOS.”

Some high-profile titles that use PhyreEngine include the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, OlliOlli 2 and the Hotline Miami series.
Fans are also hopeful that other outside support could be coming to the Nintendo Switch in the future too.
Nintendo fans have been waiting for an update on the Netflix release date for Nintendo Switch, which was put in some doubt earlier this month.
However, Netflix has posted a new update that has given Nintendo Switch owners fresh hope.
In a new statement, a Netflix spokesperson said that the streaming giant is still exploring the possibility of launching on Nintendo Switch.
"We are still exploring the opportunity with Nintendo, but don't have definitive plans to share at this time," Netflix explains.
"The statement from the Netflix CS twitter handle has been modified to reflect this."
It seems a no-brainer to bring support to the versatile console, although fans look set for a longer wait than they first thought.
