The Unreal Engine was one of the first dev tools to debut on Sony's recently revealed NGP device with Epic's Tim Sweeney showing off an impressive demo at the PlayStation event where the NGP was announced late last month. Epic have announced that Unreal Engine 3 is now available for clients to license on the new portable hardware.
"NGP raises the bar for the performance of handheld platforms with its multi-core GPU and shader-based, multi-core CPU," said Epic vice president Mark Rein. "This makes Unreal Engine 3 a particularly advantageous fit for NGP. Furthermore, multiple UE3 licensees are already working with NGP, some of which have indicated they intend to release their games for the platform's launch."
"We see NGP as a true game-changer with a perfect combination of performance, innovative controls and gamer appeal that make it truly a high-end console in your pocket."
Crytek's CryEngine was also recently confirmed to join the list of NGP developer tools earlier this month.
