Live2D Inc. has announced that the Live2D Cubism SDK for Nintendo Switch is now available, a software development kit that will allow game developers to integrate 2D assets made with Live2D Cubism 3 with their game projects for Nintendo Switch.

Live2D Cubism SDK, as the company explains, is a runtime library for developing Nintendo Switch games with the Unity game engine, and lets developers develop games with Live2D assets.

Nintendo had used Live2D Cubism when developing Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, and Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation for Nintendo 3DS.

For developers that are interested in putting it to use, you must first apply on the Nintendo Developer Portal. After logging in, look for “Live2D” in the list of supported middleware tools.
