Pokemon developer Game Freak posts job adverts for new console RPG

Posted March 20, 2017

"He also started directing main series Pokemon games starting with fire red and leaf green".

Mainline Pokemon developer Game Freak have posted several recruitment adverts for a console game, indicating there could be a Nintendo Switch game on the horizon.

These requirements seem more than enough to consider a Nintendo Switch Pokemon version although it is to be considered a rumor until an official announcement.

There have been other reports in the past to support this theory as previous year, some evidence appeared that a Nintendo Switch Pokemon game was in development as Pokemon Star. Whether the ads are for the same game or not is unclear.

The listings go on to describe that the new hires will be creating character models for a popular RPG; more specifically, they'll be responsible for designing models of "toon-like" figures, monsters and items.

"We'll have you work on the production an RPG game that is popular on a global scale", says the ad.

If "Wii U and PS Vita" doesn't scream "Nintendo Switch", I don't know what does.

This isn't the first BIG Pokemon news we've written about in the past few days concerning Game Freak.

I could see Nintendo porting Pokemon Sun and Moon to the Switch, though that would take some time since the 3DS is vastly different from the Switch.

The recent job posting is a character modeler wanted for a new title - with the contract lasting until May 2018. A brand new Pokemon game doesn't seem too unreasonable for that time frame, does it?
