Princess Peach: Showtime! is Seemingly Built on Unreal Engine

With Nintendo allegedly gearing up to reveal its next-generation console (and release it later in the year), first-party support for Switch is bound to continue slowing down, though we do still have some notable releases lined up. For instance, Princess Peach: Showtime! is out a little over a month from now, and though details about the game’s development are bafflingly scant – as is often the case with Nintendo titles – one particularly notable tidbit has seemingly emerged.

As shared by Twitter user @Akfamilyhome, it looks like Princess Peach: Showtime! has been developed using Unreal Engine, with the engine’s logo visible on the back of a display box for the game that was reportedly spotted in China.

If true, this would make Princess Peach: Showtime! the third first-party Nintendo title to use Epic Games’ development toolset, after 2019’s Yoshi’s Crafted World and 2023’s Pikmin 4. Nintendo itself, however, has yet to confirm what engine has been used to develop the game (or even what studio has developed it).

Princess Peach: Showtime! launches on March 22 for the Switch.
