This might not sound like much, but supporting the major game engines is a great thing for Nintendo, as it'll mean we'll see more games on NIntendo's next-gen console, that we currently see on the Xbox One and PS4. Normally game developers have to port games over to the Nintendo console out at the time - right now, that would be the Wii U - but with built-in support for the major game engines from Nintendo, this wouldn't be a problem.
