Game technology and development company NaturalMotion has announced that Morpheme 3 is available for developers working on Sony's NGP platform.

Morpheme 3 is an industry-leading animation engine, designed to give developers and animators unprecedented creative control over their games, saving them time and resources with improved real-time, graphical authoring and previewing of in-game animation. It also allows the creation of high quality, believable characters.

Morpheme 3 has been licensed by major developers and publishers such as Ubisoft, Disney, THQ, and BioWare, and has been used to animate games such as Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

“We are excited by the possibilities that SCE is opening up with NGP” said NaturalMotion CEO Torsten Reil in the press release.

“With Morpheme already powering numerous PlayStation 3 titles, it is amazing to now have the performance to run our technology at the same fidelity on a handheld device.”

Morpheme 3 for NGP is said to benefit from early access to prototype hardware and is available now.
