W4 Games Unveils W4 Consoles: A Practical Console Porting Solution for Godot Game Developers

Middleware Console Ports for Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony Platforms, Powered by Godot 4.

W4 Games is excited to announce the successful launch of the W4 Consoles Early Access Program. This practical and developer-focused solution aims to provide fully middleware-approved console ports for Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony platforms, making Godot a trusted option in line with leading commercial game engines.

Streamlining Console Porting Services

W4 Games’ W4 Consoles is designed to offer full-featured platform ports with support for all major APIs both of Godot and of the target consoles, differentiating it from traditional porting services. Our solution ensures that Godot 4 titles can pass the console manufacturer’s requirements, meeting stringent quality standards and providing support for a comprehensive feature set.

Simplicity and Accessibility

Our primary goal is to make console porting as simple and accessible as possible for game developers. W4 Consoles brings the same ease of use that developers love about Godot to the console porting experience. This empowers most developers to independently handle their game ports, reducing their reliance on third-party services.

Early Access Success: Xbox™ and Nintendo Switch™

During our Early Access Program, W4 Games is delighted to witness the overwhelming success of the W4 Consoles product. The ports for Microsoft’s Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch have surpassed our expectations. Customers appreciate its impressive quality and user-friendly features, setting the stage for a remarkable final product. The current state of the product is similar to the platforms already available in Godot, including one-click deploy and on-device debugging (including remote scene tree, scripting breakpoints, etc.). Sony’s PlayStation 5 support will be coming later this year.
