We know that there is a proper Pokemon RPG in development for the Nintendo Switch, but the question is when will it arrive? Some have speculated that it could as early as this year, while others believe it might only arrive next year. However thanks to a recent job listing on Glassdoor (which has since been taken down), we might have a better idea of the game’s status.


According to the job listing posted by the Pokemon Company, it seems that they are looking to hire a video game editor to edit video game text for the next two years. This will cover game text, strategy guides, manuals, press releases, marketing materials, and so on, although the listing does not directly mention the game.

Based on this listing, it is believed that the game could be close to launching within the timeframe that was previously reported. It has also been speculated that because the contract is for two years, it ties in with an earlier report that the upcoming game could have DLCs which could be released over the course of the next two years.

In any case Nintendo has been rather mum on the whole subject and many had hoped that the company would have announced the game a couple of weeks ago during its Nintendo Direct presentation, but unfortunately that did not happen (although we did get Super Smash Bros.). Perhaps we’ll learn more at E3 2018, but until then take it with a grain of salt.
