Pokémon developer Game Freak has posted listings for two jobs that seem to indicate that they’re cooking up a new pokémon title for the Switch.
Spotted by Silicon Era, the first listing calls for 3D CG designers for a console project, and opens with “Here’s a chance to work on the development of a globally popular RPG!”
Apparently the successful applicant will be tasked with creating “cartoon-like super deformed characters, monsters, and item models” as well as debugging and whatnot.
“We’ll have you work on the production an RPG game that is popular on a global scale,” says the ad. “It’s a title that just about anyone knows, a proposal that could be your future career,” it continues, as well as mentioning that the platform is going to be a console.
The second listing is for a new title, and while the description is essentially the same as the previous ad, the applicants need to have had experience working on models at the level of Wii U and PS Vita.
The contracts will run up until May 2018 at the latest, so if it is indeed a new Pokémon on the Switch, we might hear something at this E3 if Nintendo is feeling generous with information.
