Armature to share Unreal Engine 4 Wii U code with other devs once its ported for Bloodstained

“Hi Bloodstained backers - Armature here with another update. It turns out that a people have shown a ton of interest in our plan to port UE4 to the WiiU and PS Vita. Since they're not officially supported platforms, it's going to be a lot of work to get Bloodstained and UE4 on these platforms, but we are up to the challenge.

Since the community got these platforms off the ground, we figure that it's best to let the community have them back when we're done. As a result, after the release of Bloodstained we will share, for free, the UE4 WiiU and Vita code with any developer authorized to develop on those platforms! Thank you all very much for this opportunity!”

Thanks to Hamr for the heads up!

I've upped my backing level just because of this.

But third parties said it was impossible! THEY ONLY SPEAK TRUTHS!

ok question no1 (dear IGA) WHY ON EARTH do you need UE4 for a BLOODY 2D GAME?
Question no2, what sort of watering down are we talking about?

been playing your batman game, there are times I can see the metroid but this game has issues...

"WHY ON EARTH do you need UE4 for a BLOODY 2D GAME?"

2.5D*

3D game on a 2D plane.

The developers are on record citing Guilty Gear Xrd as an influence.

Wow... That sure sounds pretty generous of them! That could cut out the middle man on a lot of possible development in the future for the console for other developers. Good on Armature! You know this is going to take them some serious work, developing the UE4 port all on their own. Makes me wonder who or what company might want to take advantage of this after Armature releases it.

How many third party companies are still developing for Wii U who're interested in wanting to use Unreal Engine 4?

It's a kind gesture. It's like saying "We f***ing did it, so what's your excuse? Take our code!" Too bad most developers still won't use it, even if given a huge headstart.

Epic has been really pushing UE4 for indie devs recently (what with them making it free last March), so this is great news.

well if they are so sure they can do it. Still I think ue4 makers should I don't know send them something in return

Not very interested in this game, but that's very nice of them.

The game isn't supposed to be released until some time in 2017. I doubt it'll help many developers by then. Still pretty generous.

I think it's cool of them. Nothing is forcing them to release the code.

A noble gesture...but yeah by the time this game comes out the Wii U and the Vita will be in their twilight, I can't see many developers or gamers getting much from this.
