There May Be a Pokemon Game Coming to the Switch


There’s rumors swirling about regarding the possibility of a new Pokemon game coming to Nintendo’s latest console, the Switch, as fans learned upon two job listings that Pokemon developer Game Freak has posted. The job posting was accidentally discovered by Silicon Era, with one listing looking for 3D CG designers for a console project, opening with “Here’s a chance to work on the development of a globally popular RPG!”

The job listing continues by stating that the successful hire will be tasked with creating “cartoon-like super deformed characters, monsters, and item models” along with debugging and other designer duties.

“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 uses the same description as the previous job listing, but also requires applicants to have some experience working on models at the level of Wii U and PS Vita.

While it may take until E3 before we get verification on the rumors (the contracts will run up to May 2018 at the latest), it is not necessarily a big surprise that a new Pokemon will be coming to the Switch. The 3DS is already on its last legs, despite the recent hardware refresh, and the Switch seems to be filling the role of both console and handheld for Nintendo so it’s pretty much a given that a Pokemon game will appear on it (that, and the fact that Pokemon is one of Nintendo’s big moneymakers and the company would never pass off on the chance to print more money.)
