Major Japanese developer hiring for multiplatform project, targeting Switch

Posted on September 10, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

We recently came across an interesting job listing from Japan. A couple of months ago, one unspecified company put up a job listing for an engineer. The developer is looking to bring in three people with experience in programming games using C#.NET, Unity and

Those hired will be working on a major console title by a well-known game developer. Additional details about the company’s identify are not provided.

Regarding the actual project, the listing states that it’s targeted for launch next spring. It’s a multiplatform game targeting Switch in addition to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Although the job listing doesn’t say which company the position is for, one possibility is Bandai Namco. The work place is Oshiage, which is where Bandai Namco is located. It’s partial speculation on our part, but again, that’s a strong possibility.

    Hmmm, multiplatform eh? Curious indeed.

  • FutureFox

    New IP or existing? If existing what title can be multiplatform that isn’t already out( i.e Tekken, Pokken and a Million Narutos)?

    • Felipe M.

      You can keep the Pokkens and Narutos. I’ll happily accept Tekken 7 for the Switch.

    Tales game.

    Hope it’s Arc System Works since DBX2 sold A LOT in Japan on the Switch and Bandai decided to bring Fighterz to the system

      Did you read the article?

      • amak11

        I dont think you did either. There is a shortage of the physical copy of the game because it’s been selling really well

        • Evan Gustavson

          You skimmed it.
          The article said that there’s a shortage of the physical copies because they didn’t EXPECT it to sell well.
          There weren’t a large amount of physical copies to begin with.
          They had a laughably low stock based on the total number of sales it took to actually “sell out”.
          Congrats, XV2 completely surpassed Bamco’s [low] expectations.
          When the bar is low, no one will be surprised when you reach it.

      That’s a long stretch. FighterZ isn’t even out yet. Nintendo fanboys lol.

  • Hazewall

    Code vein isn’t made in unity though

  • GoldenTriforce

    I really wonder what major multi platform game is using Unity over Unreal. The only big game I can think of which used Uniy was Bomberman R.

  • Spice’71

    Cuphead is unity..,.

    • moviereviewrsports

      Yes but Cuphead is a Microsoft exclusive the devs said its not coming to PS4 and Wii U/Switch. Maybe the sequel.

      • amak11

        >Puts Wii U and Switch in same category
        >Doesnt realize two different machines with significantly different specs

        • the wiiu is a significantly better machine

          • Bảo Anh Hoàng

            Switch is 3 times stronger

          • wiiu is 3 times better

          • Bảo Anh Hoàng

            yeah, and near 30 times harder to make game for

          • that’s why its games are so much better

          • Bảo Anh Hoàng

            And all of it come to switch and can play anywhere, no need to sit down in front of TV

          • I bought a tv so I can play games and watch movies on a big screen. I play games at home. I am not 7 years old, if I’m going out, it’s because I don’t want to stare at a screen.

          • Bảo Anh Hoàng

            Unlike you stay at home only, i have to go to work so i don’t have time to stay at home like NEET and unemployed , and i use plane and taxi too, or you want to bring TV and dock every where?

          • You are criticizing me because you play video games at work?
            I don’t have a plane to take me to work, I have to drive.

          • Bảo Anh Hoàng

            Yeah, sure, keep play at home, unemployed have nothing to do after all. And i’m not play at work, i play in the rest time, and can’t bring a TV to my job place to play game, laughable and ridiculous

          • You said you have to go to work and bring your Switch with you
            Now you say you want to bring a TV and play on the big screen
            Do you ever get anything done or is your job a front for a sex dungeon

          • Bảo Anh Hoàng

            You don’t understand, do you? I bring switch and can play it anytime anywhere because it is portable, not home console can only play with TV, i don’t have time to do that, and of course no way any normal people will bring LCD TV everywhere to play game LOL

    • GoldenTriforce

      Also Cuphead isn’t Japanese, or from a major developer.

    • You would like join our server Discord Spice? we have great people there, my link is in my profile.

  • GoldenTriforce

    Also the phrasing of the listing make it seem like an unannounced project. Its probably not a port of a preexisting game.

    Of all the games that I’d actually want to be done in Unity by Bandai Namco, Katamari would certainly be great but that’s unlikely to happen.

  • Felipe M.

    A game is now just known as “titles.” It takes away the value the word game had for the gaming community.

    AAA title
    Best title of the year
    New title in development

  • facy ben book

    This headline is too vague, it is like saying: “A Major movie studio is
    casting actors for a major hollywood project.” Happens everyday, doesn’t
    mean anything. Absolutely non-news. Do people even study journalism

  • Could be Tales of, or that mentioned Taiko no Tatsujin.

    I hope it’s a new IP.

  • R.Z.

    Wish you weren’t wrong.

    • Justmadeanaccount2

      You dont know if I’m wrong or not
