In the past few weeks, we have heard about the delay of some Nintendo Switch ( Amazon, $299.99) games developed using the Unity Engine, such as Yooka-Laylee and Battle Chasers: Nightwar. Despite the issues, it seems like quite a few games developed for the Nintendo console use the engine without any trouble.

Speaking with GamesIndustry, Unity’s Japan Regional Director Hiroki Omae confirmed that more than 30% of Nintendo Switch games are developed with Unity.

Unity has been providing developer support for Nintendo Switch since day one, and we’re proud to report that more than 30% of games released on Switch to-date are made with Unity
