Pokemon developer Game Freak is recruiting for a new game. The company has put out an official job listing for a programmer who will be involved with some sort of RPG on 3DS.

We have no  further details, and nothing more is included in the listing. Could this be a new Pokémon game? We know a new entry in the series is supposed to come to Switch, so could this be something new instead?

We will have to wait and see.

Russia is a country that does not seem to like Pokémon Go. They previously arrested a man and charged him with inciting religious hatred for playing Pokémon Go in a church. He faces 3 years imprisonment if found guilty.

It seems the Simpsons have also run afoul of the country for this same reason. A recent Simpsons episode say the show spoof Pokémon Go and had Homer play a similar game inside a church. This angered Russian clerics and the episode has been held back in the country as a result.

The Pokémon Company has announced The 2017 Pokken Tournament Championship Series

Take a shot at becoming the Pokkén Tournament World Champion when the Pokkén Tournament Championship Series returns in 2017! In addition to the title, a combined $25,000 in prizes are on the line at the qualifying competitions in June and the World Championships event in Anaheim, California, this August.

This year, 16 players will qualify for the World Championships, and there will be only one age division for all competitors. Four players will receive invitations from each of the two qualifying events, plus four more players will be chosen from Japan, and the four top players from a Last Chance Qualifier occurring right before the main Worlds event will be the final contenders.

Good luck battling to become the next Pokkén Tournament World Champion!

The Pokémon Company continuing to support the game’s competitive scene is a great sign for the game’s future. Not only does it help the competitive scene grow but it also means it is likely we will see a Switch version of the game, as that is the system Nintendo is focusing on now. Perhaps we will even see the content that didn’t come tot he Wii U version, in a Switch version

Pokemon may see a new life on Switch if job postings are any indication.

Recruitment ads have revealed that Game Freak is recruiting for a new development project. They are looking for 3D CG designers with experience on Wii U and PS Vita level character models using animation and modeling software Maya.

In addition Game Freak is looking for someone who can consult with the programmers and work on assisting with data. There is alsos is a line that is included in the recruitment ad that stands out.

“Here’s a chance to work on the development of a globally popular RPG!”

Another ad had the following mentioned on it.

We’ll have you work on the production an RPG game that is popular on a global scale.

 

Platform will be console.

 

It’s a title that just about anyone knows, a proposal that could be your future career.

This work will require using material to create cartoon-like super deformed characters, monsters, and item models.  As will, it will also involve work on debugging, data work, and more. According to the contracts, these positions will be until May 2018.

That wording makes this sound like a Pokémon game for the Switch. A Pokemon game was rumored for Switch as Pokemon Stars, a third version of Sun and Moon. That said, this sounds more like a new experience built from the ground up natively, rather than just a 3rd version of an already existing game.

Hopefully we will get answers soon.

Mega Man Legacy Collection producer and director Frank Cifaldi  revealed during an interview with The Watch podcast that his company Digital Eclipse are working on a new Capcom game compilation and it could be announced relatively soon.

 Cifaldi stated

I shipped a collection called Mega Man Legacy Collection the year before last (it’s been a while), and we’ve got another one coming out soon that they’re gonna announce any day now. I don’t know when – I wish I could talk about it but it’s really cool.

It is not yet known if this is Mega Man related or not, but it is worth noting that this is the 30th anniversary of Mega Man this year. Could this be an X collection? We shall see soon.
