Pokemon Developer Hiring for Console Version of ‘Globally Popular RPG’

Pokemon Developer Hiring for Console Version of ‘Globally Popular RPG’

Pokemon developer Game Freak has posted a job listing, looking to staff up for a console version of a globally popular RPG.

In translations from both Siliconera and IGN, the Japanese studio is looking for 3D CG designers that would make “characters, monsters, and items” for “a title that everyone knows.” Another listing says that experience creating models up to “Wii U / PS Vita-level[s]” is preferred.

Many are speculating that the new Pokemon Sun and Moon titles could be making their way to Nintendo’s home/handheld hybrid, the Switch. While Game Freak haven’t announced anything, the Pokemon Company’s executive Tsunekazu Ishihara has said in the past that they will make games for the platform. A report from late last year said that a project called Pokemon Stars will launch for the Switch in 2017.

We’ll keep you updated as this story develops.

I love that they're saying vague stuff like "globally popular RPG" as though literally everyone doesn't know it's Pokemon :P

They have had wii/wii u pokemon games already though right? They just were spin offs rather than classic pokemon games we see on the handhelds which I why I refuse to get excited about this until there is an actual reveal

[Global popularity is involved in RPG chance] of person-monster character models
the company is happy to commute at the station directly connected to the urgent employment development environment is very well-equipped

It is an opportunity to be involved in the development of the worldwide popular RPG!
Since it is a title that has been released for a long time, the development environment is also very well set.
It is a position you are looking for in an urgent posting! In addition, as long as development will become full-scale, long-term employment is possible.
Schedule management is a very firm firm.
Because it is directly connected to the station, it is easy to commute even on rainy days.

A fully fledged open world Pokemon rpg would change the world. No Pokemon go isn't a game and doesn't count

I'd settle for being able to travel to different regions, like in gold and silver.

Was hoping it would be a new Pokemon game instead of a port of sun and moon.

UNLESS it's an oral quality blue and red port. I know I'm dreaming but still, I want it.

Keen. Not played sun or moon so I could get on board with this.
