Nintendo's 3DS will unlikely be able to support Epic's Unreal Engine according to comments from the company's VP Mark Rein. Speaking at GDC Online, Rein told Joystiq that Epic wasn't currently working on the 3DS. "It's below our [minimum specifications], from what we can tell," he said, "We don't have a 3DS, so there's no way for us to verify that. but everything we've been led to believe is that it's below our min-spec. You couldn't do a game that looks like [Epic Citadel] on it, for example." The is the graphics the iPhone is capable of. Epic Citadel is a recently released tech demo for the iPhone, showing Unreal Engine running well on the device. Epic's Mark Rein admitted that the company had yet to receive a 3DS dev kit, but added "I think if [Nintendo] considered that our engine would be good on it, they would have probably talked to us about it." While Nintendo's 3DS may not be able to run the Unreal Engine its visuals are still likely to impress, as our comparison gallery shows. Please realize that he doesn't have his actual hands on the 3DS and is going by the rumored specs, so we have to take this with a grain of salt. But if them specs are true, thats a major blow for Nintendo's 3d handheld.
