Pokemon Dev Hiring For Console Version Of A "Globally Popular RPG"
Pokemon developer Game Freak's current project is unknown, but we may have just received some small clues.
The job requires someone with experience in creating character models to the level of Wii U and PS Vita, reports Siliconera. The title of the game is not stated, but it is apparently "an RPG game that is popular on a global scale," that "just about anyone knows."
It should be noted that the job ad is found on third-party job listing site Indeed. Similar ads can be found on Game Freak's site, though these do not state the information found in the Indeed listings.
Game Freak is best known, of course, for developing the mainline Pokemon games. Outside of the critter-collecting phenomenon, the company has made smaller titles like HarmoKnight and Tembo the Badass Elephant, the latter of which released for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Mainline Pokemon games have always been exclusive to Nintendo consoles, however.
In 2016, it was reported that a new adaptation of the latest pair of big Pokemon games, Sun and Moon, was in the works for Nintendo Switch. Called Pokemon Stars, the title was apparently due to launch within six months of the Switch coming out. No official announcement has been made, however.
