Thanks to the licensing document for the US region Dragon Quest Builders demo, it is now known that Sony Interactive Entertainment’s PhyreEngine is now supported on Nintendo Switch. [Thanks, Resetera!]
Dragon Quest Builders was natively developed on PhyreEngine, so perhaps this is not as big a surprise as it should be. PhyreEngine is compatible with other platforms such as Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, and even Android and iOS. However, Dragon Quest Builders seems to be the first Nintendo Switch game to confirm PhyreEngine support.
Other games coming to Nintendo Switch that use PhyreEngine include Falcom’s Ys VIII. Well known titles such as Falcom’s Trails of Cold Steel series and Square Enix’s Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster were also developed on the same game engine.
