Game Freak has posted more job advertisements that hint at a new potential Pokémon game coming to the Nintendo Switch. Moreover, their ad specifically stated that they are looking for someone who is willing to work on a globally popular role-playing game (RPG).
Game Freak Hiring For Possible Large-Scale Project
According to Siliconera, Game Freak is currently looking for potential employees to possibly work on future games. They are in need of a 3D CG designer who has experience creating PS Vita and Wii U level character models with the use of modeling software Maya and animation.
Similarly, they are also looking for someone who can consult with the programmers and assist them with data. It is worth noting that the ad starts with "Here's a chance to work on the development of a globally popular RPG!" and requires work using materials to craft cartoon-like characters, item models and monsters. Similarly, they also need someone to work on data, debugging and the like.
Pokémon Stars For The Nintendo Switch?
In line with this, there are various reports in Japan claiming that this certain project is related to the Sun and Moon version for Nintendo's hybrid console, as per PVP Live. Seeing as how the unit already had a strong start, it would be fitting for Nintendo to bring over one of their most popular franchise on the console.
Previously, there had been rumors about Pokémon Stars for the Switch, which would be the third game in the seventh generation. Just like Emerald, Platinum and Yellow, Stars would supposedly improve on the game's basic formula while featuring the third legendary Pokémon. In spite of this, Nintendo nor Game Freak has still not acknowledged these rumors until now.
Until then, fans will have to wait for further announcements from both companies. Fans can play Sun and Moon on the 3DS. On the other hand, the Nintendo Switch will be arriving in stores again soon.
