Job Listing Hints at Pokemon Console Title, Hiring Process has Begun

Game Freak, the developers of the mainline Pokemon series, have put out a job listing detailing their next title, which seems to be a console version of Pokemon.

As reported by Siliconera, the ad for the job is looking for 3D CG designer who will work on “characters, monsters, and items” for “a title that everyone knows”. The job listing even goes into detail stating that it will be developed for a home console.

Check out the job listing down below:

  • 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.

There is also another job listing, which seems to be pointing to a handheld title as the listing is looking for someone with experience creating models up to “Wii U PS Vita level.” There were also rumors circulating that Pokemon Sun and Moon would come to the Switch, which could explain the second job listing.

If this does happen to be the rumored home console Pokemon title for the Switch, then expect the title to hit after March 2018 as that is the time the contract job ends. Are you excited about the console Pokemon title? Let us know in the comments below!
